  3. The food looks fabulous. I wish I'd had that for dinner...and the ocean is so beautiful, different from the Pacific which is just a few miles from me.

  10. Mi piace mangiare con ti oggi. (Hmm, I'm not sure about those indefinite articles.) But it was fun to meet you, mia amica. Piacere.

    (Eleonora is really a nice lady, everyone.)

    It was my pleasure to meet YOU finally! (Jeff is a really special guy, everyone.)

    Thank you for the kind thoughts, E. loves his puzzle and I'm making the wild rice tonight, blissfully uncorking a delightful bottle of chilled Frascati: Castelli Romani meets Minnesota!

    Anche a me!

    In the south they're called cannolicchi, because of their shape. I much prefer that to "razor" which has such a more cutting sound (no pun intended).

    I understood how much I had missed the sea when I first inhaled its aroma. You are so lucky to live by the ocean!!

    It was, until Easter Sunday when hordes of daytrippers invaded it. But then it was all calm again...

    Sapori, profumi, ricordi... tutto meraviglioso!

    I agree with Linda's reply!

    I posted more images, wish granted!

    I wished I had photographed more of what we ate, but greed was quicker than the camera!

    I actually saw those clams come off the boat at 9 am. By noon they were in my gullet...
