Italy dreaming

Jump to last reply

I'm playing a little game as it's cold, I'm ill and in work, got a headache and sore foot and I'm broke - not happy! :-( Anyone want to join in?

If you could click your fingers and be anywhere in Italy today, right now, where would you be and what would you be doing?

I'd be at Ficocella beach at Palinuro in the Cilento, no need to be wrapped up too warm as it's 17 degrees, but I'd still have a jumper and scarf in case there's a breeze coming in off the sea. It smells of salt and there's plies of dark, soft seaweed at the shoreline. The sea is deep azure and turquoise in thick bands, due to sandbanks, and the waves are a bit more forceful than they were in the summer, falling at the shoreline with small crashes. I've got a hot chocolate and my book, and I curl up on a stray sun-lounger next to the closed-up summer beach hut and read, but the salty, slightly misty sea air and the small crashing of the waves lulls me and so I just set the book and the cup down in the sand, pull my hands inside the sleeves of my jumper and close my eyes, letting the ancient rhythms of this coast soothe me...
