Hill fires, a big plane and masses of freckles. 

Sicily is hot at the moment and very humid.  I’m currently dripping over my sketchbook under a tree in thirty five degree heat.

Hair is looking like it too.

There’s been no signal here for the last few days as a quite severe hill fire started on the parched hill above our campsite.

We’ve been woken up to a very impressive fire plane gathering water from the bay and swooping dangerously low amongst the jagged ridges of the hill to offload its water. Most spectacular indeed especially of a night when the fire appears like bright orange tendrils against the dark silouette of the hill.

I feel quote conspicuous as the palest female in the site but I seem to have developed a small army of freckles to break up the ofending white bits.

  1. After seeing the devastation of the forest fires in Spain and Portugal, and how unpredictable they can be, please do be careful out there Angie and don’t linger too long in the area if there is real danger, love. xxx
