Winter - on Ischia, mostly

The ups and downs of December, January and February - our quietest time of year

Ischia wouldn't be 'the green island' if we didn't get some rain, and about one
winter's day in three is wet, but who wants to see that?

More or less in reverse date order: click on the thumbnails for larger versions,
and accompanying notes and captions!
