Hello everyone! Even if the thermometer shows no more than 13° Celsius (55° Fahrenheit), we are starting to feel more and more that winter's end is near. The sun is shining strongly on the island, with the sound of robins singing in the air and the waves calmly brushing against the shore in the distance. From Fishermen's Beach in Ischia Ponte, the subject of today's photo, the boats are starting to be prepared to go out on the water. The paintbrushes are out in force, adorning the boats with names of loved ones, making one wonder who "Mariella" might be. Castello Aragonese looms large in the background while further evidence of the close season is provided by the roofless restaurant. The forecasts are predicting a fabulous week as idyllic island life continues. Ciao :-)
