Our Adriatic Coast

I don’t know about you, but there’s something about the sea that sets my imagination soaring. The broad horizon and immense expanse of water makes it seem that only the sky is the limit. I wonder what it’s like across the way, and wish for a boat to paddle off on new discoveries. It’s a good thing then, my being boatless, as I would surely be rushing off to certain disaster. So I content myself with feasting on the views, while (of course) savoring a foamy cappuccino or hand-crafted gelato! 🙂 Care to join me?

The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net forever.

I am a wife, mom, nonna, blogger, and missionary in Italy. But really, I'm just an ordinary woman on a journey, trying to slow down enough to hear the still small voice of God and live for all that is truly important in this world.

    1. Oh yes Ron! The sea or ocean really does that. Every sound of the waves hitting the shores seems to speak of God’s greatness, and of course of our smallness. And it helps us to see that our great God who controls the tides, the shores, and the waves – also has everything else under control. Even during pandemics!


  1. It’s almost like an enchanted little village waiting to be discovered. I understand your desire to get in a boat and go–that adventuresome spirit is a gift in so many ways but also a bit of a bother. I love that you enjoy the view and can let your imagination run wild with you just in dreaming of what could be. Beautiful.


  2. How pretty, Shelia. I didn’t realize you were on the coast. Some years back, we vacationed in a town on the Adriatic, Catolica was the name. It was funny, really. It was a vacation spot mostly for German tourists, so everybody spoke German or Italian. Dinner and shopping was interesting as we all hobbled together a mix of English, German and Italian. We spent 10 days there…what a great vacation it was.

    1. Yes indeed Wally, that area is quite touristy. Our area is much less so and we hope it will stay that way! Plus our sea is cleaner, as it’s more open. The further north one goes along the Adriatic it’s more closed in. Our little town is up in the foothills, but we see the sea from our garden. This photo was taken in Vasto the town where our church and my husband’s work is. If you ever make it back over here it would be great to connect!!
