Destination #5 - European Tour
Another stay with a different aunt and uncle of Chris's. Fortunately, this time they spoke english and communication wasn't a problem. Fortunately again, and BONUS, another apartment of our own to stay in. Chris's aunt and uncle owned a dozen apartments throughout Pescara and they owned and operated a small coffee stand - all right next to the beach. Uh..what a stay. Lounged on the beach all five days. Fabulous. The water was great...warm...rock outcroppings to climb on...sunny weather all the time... And the food...it's Italy...of course it was fabulous. There was the family retreat at the top of the mountain with the succulent skewers of think steak. There was our pizza restaurant. There was the seafood place. Then the best dinner of all was the our home cooked meal on our hosts' balcony. Here we learned the importance and zest of cooking meat and everything else with olive oil. Tremendous.
Unfortunately since our departure, Uncle Tony has passed from a stroke. Rest in peace.
