Afternoon everyone. It's bright and very breezy on the island today, particularly here in Forio on the west coast. That means it's not a day for messing about on the water (unless you're into kite-surfing in which case it very much is!) but there are plenty of other things to see and do in Ischia besides that. I've just taken a walk down to Forio town centre and back, something I haven't done for a while and should do more of. When you live somewhere for a while there's a tendency to feel blasé about it but it's almost possible when that place is Forio and especially so when the sun is shining like it is today. On the subject of the weather, it's going to be sunshine all the way for the rest of this evening with more of the same expected tomorrow. I'll be keeping an eye on that wind and will continue to post regular weather snippets on our ferries and hydrofoils page. Today's top temperature will be around 23°C (73°F) and with another balmy evening in prospect that summer breeze will be just the chunk of pineapple to top-off the cocktail (I must work harder on my analogies). Today's photo was taken just an hour or so ago. It's from Cava dell'Isola Beach which is one that many people miss due to its slightly hidden location off the coast road between Citara and the town centre. The beach is all free and there are also some nice restaurants and snack bars down there so definitely worth a visit. I'll be back with more soon so for now - Ciao :-)
