Fishermen return to shore from Sperlonga's clean waters bearing a precious cargo.
Bill and I tasted some of that cargo at one of Sperlonga's little cafes
At a loose end one afternoon we went back to the Trani Bar and ordered lunch. Under the guidance of the waiter we had a plate of memorable antipasti.
We also had two plates of sole.
The waiter deboned the fish for us.
One of the locals made a desperate appeal
for a morsel
of the divine sole.
Did we favour the appeal? Not telling.

Another day, on the beach
we tried one of the seafood restaurants recommended by our hosts.
L'Angelo quickly induced that good food trance.
The insalata mista (mixed salad) was a meal in itself.
We had been seated by the chef himself who recommended we split a plate of what Bill and I called Luciano's Whim.
Luciano's Whim is spaghetti with octopus, squid, mussels, clams, shrimp, scampi and crab.
William Kimber was a happy restaurant diner
enjoying the Whim of the chef.
The ice-cold wine on the hot day
was a perfect compliment to the seafood.
We went back a few days later and repeated the whole experience. Thank you Luciano!
