Woke to a beautiful day in Vasto. Went downstairs to find breakfast being served on the patio. It was divine. View over the Adriatic.

It's dad's birthday so made my first call home. He said it's freezing in Manjimup.

Today I went into Vasto town to wander around the shops and the small alleyways and visit castles, churches, etc.

I had heard about trabuccos, old fishing platforms with nets along the Abruzzo coast. I was recommended Trabocco Cungarelle. They offer a set menu consisting 6 courses and wine. The strangest thing I ate was sea snails. Tasted ok but still had the little eyes on the end of the tentacle things.

The view was amazing and such a great day. Lunch took 3 hours and then it was time to go home for a siesta.

Staying in tonight with a full belly.
