We came back on Sunday evening. Were in Sicily for 1 week and in Norfolk and Eastbourne the second week. There was an enormous thunderstorm in Sicily, never seen anything like it. Quite scary with rocks streaming down roads like rivers and parts of the hotel were flooded. We were in a coach coming back from Syracuse to Taormina when it started. The next day we couldn't leave the hotel because of the rain, our Rep from Thomson's organised a quiz - we did very badly!
Our boat trip was cancelled, but at the end of the week the sea was calm and the sky was blue so we booked another boat trip. But it was Italian not English. We enjoyed it though. We swam in a glorious warm turquoise sea and drank cocktails in the water. Then more cocktails and plates of fresh fruit on the boat.
Then off to England to see family.
Thank you all for my lovely birthday wishes, cakes and cards. OH took me out to a restaurant in Diss on my birthday, but not a fine day, it rained! Enjoyed it though, we drove up to the broads and took a little boat ferry and had a beer in a pub.
