Most of my group hadn't been to Ragusa Ibla before and they fell in love with the city as I do each and every time I visit.
|"mew mew" He was sooooo cute!!|
Due to the "joys" of the GPS about 2/3 of the group arrived a bit late so I started off with a few people and Les ended up leading the rest of the group.
Everyone went at a different pace so some of us stayed together as a group and others branched off on their own.
At the end of the walk everyone met up for some of the best gelato in Sicily (possibly in Italy as well). I had a scoop of Anguria (watermelon) and Moscato (a sweet wine). So good!! Gelati di Vini rocks! I'd go back to Ragusa just for the gealto. :)
After dessert everyone was hungry for dinner. I hadn't planned on everyone wanting to eat together so I quickly scouted the vicinity for a restaurant. Twenty minutes later we were seated.
We had a fantastic meal! Often restaurants in touristy areas can be hit and miss, but this one was excellent, and the prices were very reasonable, too. I highly recommend La Piazzetta!! In addition to great food, the staff was awesome. They were a bit suprised when I asked if they had a table for 14 but they were happy to accommodate us.

I couldn't have asked for a better day for a Photo Walk. Being outdoors late in July in the Sicilian Summer sun was a bit scary but we were lucky! It was 10-15 degrees F cooler than where we live and around the base. In the evening it cooled to the low 70's. Perfecto!!
I couldn't have asked for a better day! Wonderful friends, beautiful scenery, and fantastic food - the best things in life. :)
Participating in the Worldwide Photo Walk was a fabulous experience! I'm not sure where we'll be this time next year but I hope to participate again, wherever I am in the world.
