Train on a ferry

All the way from Catania to Calabria and I did not have to leave the train except to take these photos. It was a weird sensation feeling the ferry on the waves whilst sitting on the train.      

Messina

I took a train journey to Messina today and found some sunshine and a wonderful church clock.

   
 

The photo above is looking across the straits of Messina to Italy (where I am going to tomorrow).

Infiorata at Noto

Once a year the hill town of Noto has a flower festival, a bit like well dressing but on a much grander scale and in the sunshine. Each year they have the theme of a country and this year it was Catalonia and Dali.
