Father's Day

For Father's Day, we let Dad sleep in and then we went to the pool on base to cool off (temp is already soaring in the high 90's). In the evening, we went to Capomulini-Acireale to walk along the water and have dinner at Dad's favorite seafood restaurant. According to local legend, the three cone-shaped islands in the background are the very same stones thrown by the Cyclopes at Ulysses. The islands are called "isole dei ciclopi". My dad goes scuba diving there.
Il Porticciolo has the best seafood in Sicily, especially the fried calamaretti (baby calamari that melts in your mouth!), lobster linguine and mussel linguine.
It was a great day in honor of a great man, my Dad.
