Dinner in Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily

After a long and wonderful day at sea, we were ready to refuel!

A quick swim, shower and cup of tea and we were raring to go.

A couple of BFF snaps along the way for posterity.

We’ll bore the kids with them when we’re old and grey, no doubt.

Quick as a flash we changed for supper and were ready to head out, back into Castellammare.

Striped maxi dress

Bamboo bag – finally back in stock! (also just pre-ordered this one!)

White mini dress // Basket bag 

Cool earrings

Where we immediately befriended a gorgeous local chap.

Real men wear pink, after all.

He joined us as we explored the old town, watching as the light turned ever more golden by the second.

Sunset is the hour to see and be seen in Italian coastal towns.

Pull on that dress you’ve been saving, crack out the perfume, a few diamonds, maybe a sportscar?

Together we all strolled arm in arm along the promenade.

Watching the town come to life as shirtless fishermen with rippling muscles (not that I noticed, honey) finished up for the day.

 

All was well in this sleepy Sicilian town.

We stopped off at Vogue for cocktails.

And chose a restaurant on the front for supper.

Overlooking the bay.

Starting, naturally, with Sicilian prawns.

Raw, salty, with a slight metallic taste. Truly exceptional and a must try.

Tuna tartar.

Octopus salad.

All to share.

As we watched the world go by.

Followed by a pasta course, of course!

Busiata with shrimp, tomato and pistachio.

Another Sicilian classic.

 

And the king of pasta dishes, Vongole.

Best eaten while watching the sun set above the Sicilian hills, glass of local white in hand.

 

For pudding we meandered back to Vogue, where a gorgeous bearded Italian served us life changing gelato.

Which we ate on the harbour side, watching the lights and stars twinkle into life.

The perfect Italian evening!

How aboat that?
