The Sicilian Visit

Nice to see our old friends, Stephen & Lucia, from the marina who were following their football team, Brentford. They were playing Cardiff and despite atrocious weather, travelled over on Saturday at the end of February.They had booked an hotel for a few nights – to see us and our new home – very sweet.

Saturday was dreadful but on Sunday & Monday it did brighten up
Sunday saw us on a tour of the Gwaun valley and down to Newport – lunch at the Golden Lion and then a walk at Newport sands
Toby seemed a lot better and despite our best efforts to keep him out of the water – in he went and again…
“There seems to be water everywhere!”
Bright but still breezy
Monday, the tour continued . . . Melin Tregwynt followed by St David’s
It is a terrific cathedral – the sloping floor and what an organ!
view from the cloisters
Gloriously sunny – cold but no rain! Let’s hope Spring comes along and things start to calm down weather-wise.
Great to see you guys! Hope it’s not too long before we meet again and one day…. in Syracuse!!

One thought on “The Sicilian Visit”

  1. it was great fun coming to see you all. Wales was so beautiful as we were blessed by brilliant sunshine although it was bracing to say the least. The area around the Cathedral of St David’s and the Bishop’s Palace was so peaceful not withstanding the large number of kiddies on a school outing.

    Highlight of the visit: Toby finding any excuse to get into water – bless him.

    Thank you for your hospitality and your friendship.

    see you again soon we hope

    Stephen and Lucia
