Back to the Beach - The Italian Version

While in Abruzzo, Anthony, Sofia and I spent two nights in Alba Adriatica, a beach town about 45 minutes from his family's home. Because we arrived late the first night, we only were able to take a short walk up and down the lungomare which consists of bars, restaurants, shop after shop and arcades - where, Anthony has told me, he put in a lot of time during his summers in Italy. After we put Sofia to bed, Anthony and I played a couple hands of Scopa before hitting the hay ourselves.

After a heavy rain throughout the night, we decided against the beach in the morning and took a drive through nearby towns instead, where, funny enough, the skies were crystal clear and not a drop of rain was found. But before leaving the beach, we made a couple stops to get some pictures of the deserted town.

Finally, the sun comes out! We took a walk along the beach after our siesta. It was still a little windy, but the sun had warmed everything up at least and Sofia LOVES the wind so she had a great time.

Wind in our hair

Despite the weather, we had a great first day in Alba


  1. I love the beaches over there...can't wait to go back!

  2. The picture of the empty chairs on the beach is great!

  3. This post showed up on my google alert this morning for Alba A.
