the new kayak

Gene and I decided to buy a kayak since we live across the street  from a very flat ocean :) So we went to the sporting goods store and picked out a 2 person kayak. Unfortunately, it wouldn't fit in our very small Honda Fit and of course the Italians just said "sorry, you're going to have to buy a bigger car". After we were determined to get the thing home, I asked them if they had delivery. And what do you know? They do. I guess they would rather watch us frantic around trying to figure things out ourselves than let us know that simple detail :) So we got the kayak delivered and took it out today. It was so much fun! The ocean was a litter rougher than usual and not as sunny as yesterday, but it was amazing. We paddled over to the little island across the way (next time maybe we'll tie up the kayak and walk around) and then we went next to all the large rocks in Acitrezza. We are definitely fans of the kayak.

Acitrezza's famous rocks, the one on the left is actually a small island you can go to

the castle in Acicastello


  1. It's so awesome you guys are taking advantage of everything around you! Maybe I'll have to take a paddle around with you next week! ♥

  2. oh wow, next week! Yes, we will have to paddle around :) Either Gene or I can go with you and the other can babysit!
