Sicily: Scopello

Small and quaint village built on the site of an old Moorish hamlet. It is located on the edge of a natural preserve, about 50 miles northwest of Palermo.

Oh my - evocative is really the way to describe these pictures!

I am excited that you are blogging! I love this template style and may switch mine eventually to this style. It is simple but also elegant.
Welcome to blogging!! :-)

Leslie, Sicily IS evocative!

Girasoli, I'm also excited to be blogging. This is all new to me but my son has been a great teacher. He changed the template and had to work a bit on the header picture so that it could fit. He's also my spellchecker and editor. :-) ( English is not my native language )

I like the template of your blog, in particular the blue background which reminds me of the Caribbean Sea.

Maria, those photos are fantastic. Your blog is beautiful!
