updated Wednesday 8th June 2011 - after we got back from Sicily

Here are a few piccys we took in Sicily, starting with Castellammare, a nearby beach at San Vito Lo Capo, with a silly doggy chasing shadows, and the greek temple at Segesta. We then stayed in Cefalu for two nights, then Naxos for six nights, and finally Cefalu again.

We flew back late last night, but our arms are not too tired :-)
