Greetings everyone! Summer has arrived here in Sicily, and I needed a break from teaching and updating feedback yesterday, so we went to the beach in Marsala!

One of the many canals in the area used to pump water from the sea into pools where the water will be evaporated, and the salt can be harvested and sold.

Trucks full of salt on Long Island. You can walk there through the water.

Posidonia oceanica: This seaweed is native to the Mediterranean. The detached particles dry up and form protective cushions along the shore. As the plant matter begins to decompose, it creates a smell that many beach-goers do not like. Unfortunately, this encourages many beach communities to remove the stinky plant matter before the tourist season.

You’ve probably heard of Marsala wine. This is just one of many vineyards in the Marsala area. 

Now I’m back on the grind of updating your feedback on this lazy Sunday. I’ll send you an email to let you know when your feedback has been updated. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and I’ll see you soon.
