The sun has come out and the beaches are looking beautiful. We went to Taormina today to have a pre-Summer beach day. Taormina is one of the most beautiful beaches in Sicily and a very popular tourist destination. Unfortunately, the jellyfish were out so we had to be careful when walking in the water to get to a small island to lay out. It did make for some fun entertainment while laying out and watching everyone walk through the jellyfish infested water. A couple boys fell all the way in the water when trying to avoid them and others just screamed and walked very carefully. After laying out we had lunch at a beautiful restaurant overlooking the beach....a great end to our weekend.
