Dom's family is from Calabria in Southern Italy; and yes, the water really is that clear and blue. It's an absolutely gorgeous place. This town, Scilla, is about a 2 hour drive south from Belmonte Calabro where Dom's family is from. I have so many photos from our trip last August and will be doing a series of posts with more photos soon, but I felt like I had to share this one today.
I woke up this morning to warm sunlight flooding our apartment that immediately brought me back to Italy. I've had this exact image in my mind lately and think I just may have to blow it up really big and hang it on my wall so it will keep me warm on the cold, snowy days ahead.
