One of the great things about my recent move to Sicily is the house in Rometta Marea where I live and it’s proximity to the sea. I can see the sea from my balcony when I am studying or enjoying the results of my increasingly Italian cooking skills. I fall asleep to the sound of the waves. I can go for a spontaneous swim whenever the weather is good. And yes, I have been swimming even now in October.
I don’t know how many meters I live from the sea, but I counted the exact number of steps from my home to the sea: it’s 122 steps. And that’s not until I reach the sand beach, but after 122 steps I am already standing in the water.
Today, it was also a beautiful spot to watch the sunset, looking towards Milazzo.
