Our last day of biking began more beautiful than the day before. Weather wise each day seemed to get better and better - we will hate to leave.

Our three guides give us the riding instructions outside again, under s huge umbrella.  Since it was a short morning ride and mostly downhill to the sea, we got an early start again.

We spotted a small harbor as we reached the coast and stopped to see the fishing boats there.  One fisherman was just coming in with his morning catch, and the van and the first of the others bikers caught up with us.
We biked along the rocky coast, until we reached  one of the most popular beaches south of Syracuse.

The van was stopped there with the usual array of snacks  and we continued our walk along the coast to see what we could see.
One of our new friends took this picture of us and in this one we weren't tired.

There were always wildflowers to appreciate and photograph this time of the year, and this stop was no exception.
As we rounded a corner with our guide I was mesmerized with this view of Syracuse across the water
with Mt. Etan in the background.  We had signed up for the post trip which began the next day.

We were headed towards our lunch spot on the
property of Guisi, the owner of the Hotel Borgo.
As is always the tradition in Italy our guides has prepared a special picnic lunch for us there

   They were deserving of a well earned rest.

It was a great trip with wonderful people -
who we now consider special friends!!!
