An uphill climb

Day 4 was a stop in Messina, Sicily, with a shore excursion to Taormina, pretty much up and down hill the entire trip.  Taormina (the entire town is pretty much a tourist trap) has beautiful views.  We poked around, and I found a shop with some hand crafted needlework, I bought a couple of hankies (I'm collecting a supply to make into a quilt some day) and a dish towel.
