Cefalù, Sicily -- Ruby (Red) Tuesday --
(Wikimdia link and more)
[You can click on any picture to make it larger.]
This one is on the highway almost to Cefalù, Sicily (link), coming from Palermo. Cefalu is a small coastal town about five miles north of Palermo. We spent the morning with a walking tour and finished the morning by walking around town on our own Some ate, Mrs. Jim and I walked.
Our 2006 tour was with Grand Circle Travel. We went in reverse of this one. It was one of the nicest holidays that we have been on. After these two weeks we spent a week (also GCT) in Sorento visiting the Amalfi Coast and the Isle of Capri. Then we rented a car in Milan and drove to spend a week in Provence, France, and another week in Tuscany, Italy.
Mrs. Jim rates in this post. I can't remember how she got tangled up with that fellow(??) on the scooter. I used to have a blue Alstate (Sears Roebuck) Vespa about like his. I rode it to work at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas, while I was in the Army there for five years.
Of course not everything in town is red. Some of the buildings here are over 500 years old. Now how do you make these pictures larger?
No we didn't stop at the bar. But it had red in the sign. And a little red was inside the town cathedral, Duomo di Cefalù. That's all the pictures now for this nice little town. Come visit us at my casa and we can look at a lot more.
These are wonderful travel shots Jim. The warm sights are very appealing as I sit and watch it snow. :)
Have a wonderful week!
I smiled that we both have the same Shakespeare book
great minds Jim, great minds
Hope sends hugs to KP
Great Find Ruby
How you and Mrs. Jim seem to enjoy sunny Italy with ancient history and dangerous scooters on every corner.
I wish I were there.
Looked at your other blogs, wasn't sure where to start, until I found this one - have to admit the pic caught my eye - what can I say, I'm a visual person... hehe!!
thanks for popping by my blog and leaving a comment!

This must have been a great trip, Jim. I'd love to go to the Isle of Capri. It just sounds beautiful.
Happy belated Ruby Tuesday.
Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)
