Travel is complicated, sometimes

Hi all,
We are in Caltagirone, not a planned stop. Our route since Palermo has been plagued by bad weather, with a few moments of absolutely wonderful blue skies. Erice was fogged out, so we stayed only a few hours. Trapani, the next day was gorgeous, and we continued along the coast and had a serendipitous visit to Mozia, a Phonecian settlement. Amazing morning, a boat ride across a lagoon to visit the ruins of a rare nature, encountering a group of American students on a classics semester, then stopping for snacks in lovely Marsala. By the time we reached Sciacca, the weather was changing, and we decided to head for Agrigento, although we knew it would be dark. It rained hard and the trip was long, and we found ouselves locked behind a metal gate when we stopped to turn around in a well lit driveway. We had to call Hertz to call the police to get someone to unlock the gate. All in all , a very complicated day.
Here in Caltigirone, we are  again fogged in .Heavy rain, wind and fog make driving impossible. We found a really nice hotel, and hope to move on tomorrow.
