Let's see what else? I confirmed our reservations for you know where. We will be leaving on Sept. 28 and returning Oct. 4. I called the hotel just to make sure the reservations I made for this trip the last time we were down there in June were still on the books. They were then I called the Ferry company to make reservations for the car. The car really isn't necessary because of the excellent public transportation but this late in the year when there aren't many tourists, things close down early and I'm not sure how late the bus service shuts down. I suppose that's something I should look up. DUH! Having the car means we can bring a few extras and store them in the trunk. We also will be bringing some extra coats and sweaters as I assume, especially the nights might get chilly. We never went down with the idea of laying on the beach all day. It's still about 5 weeks away.
Ok I went away for a bit, phone calls and then I was diverted and start doing so neatening up and while I was neatening up I came across some photo albums the most interesting ones were of a trip to Italy and Sicily back in 1956. I was 4 and a half. Not only did my family go, my mothers brother and sister and there respective spouse and my really little cousin Maria. Maria, what an unusual name for an Italian girl. But I digress. I do have a good amount of memories from the trip considering I was so young. It was at the end of the winter. We had a snowstorm in Boston so we couldn't fly out from here. We ended up taking a sleeper train to New York and flew out from there on a big beautiful TWA Constellation. I fell in love with the looks of that plane.
I remember somebody giving me a little gold wing shaped pin that I wore a lot.
