Because there’s so much fun stuff going on in Fernandina right now and my vacation shots are gratuitous anyway… Here we are braving the elements on the boat trip back from Locarno. A bit windy, a bit rainy and a bit cold but way fun anyway.

I’m personally responsible for sending the kids of these gelato shop owners to college based on my four visits daily throughout our trip. But we walked six hours a day so I didn’t gain a pound.

The lovely castle of Sirmione – plopped right in the middle of town – or maybe it was there first…
Typical breakfast at a B&B; in Italy. I always like to pick up ideas when I travel. What do you think? Italian breakfasts at Fairbanks House?
