This September the Eccles family and friends, took off to Sicily, to stay in the wonderful town of Vallelunga, about 1½ hours drive west of Catania. For two whole weeks we enjoyed lovely sunshine, (85+F) everyday, fresh air, and belt buckle bending food. We met the most friendliest of people, and learnt that most of the men of the town are called Nino!Although for the majority of the fortnight consisted of lazing around, making decisions over numerous cups of coffee and cigarettes, we did some work. Grape picking for the day from the Villa's own vinyard to make over 400 litres of wine, ready to drink on our next visit, visiting some of the spectacular scenery of the island, but must of all, just sitting around, doing nothing apart from the odd decision making of course!Night times would consist of ear splitting italian converstions, (BabyEccles manged to sleep through the highest of decibels known to mankind!), drinking the most fantastic wine 68cents could buy, and of course eating the freshest, most delicious home made food that has ever been laid in front of me. Entertainment was as a treat, watching the odd tractor go past carrying a trailor full of the seasons grape crops, the bells of the sheep as the were gathered in each night, chase the ace was a firm favourite with some, but most of all the decision making was always taken very seriously.Mr.Mrs Eccels & Friends
