  3. Gloria, it is never to early for ice cream! And luckily with today's worldwide markets, my grocery store has watermelon year round.

    And this sounds like a terrific way to get in the mood for Spring.

  14. Gato, respecto a la Dolce Vita ya sabes que es relativo, pero el lugar aquí es muy lindo con casas muy antiguas y muy pocos edificios gracias a Dios lo que hace que la playa y el lugar sean muy lindos, el día que saqué las fotos hacía mucho calor y el día estaba muy lindo.
