The town of Agira and Nissoria was where Sherry was wounded by a German 88 and where the Commanding Officer Lt Col Ralph Crowe was killed on 24 July 1943. As you can see from the picture of the Agira Canadian War Cemetery there are many Canadians buried there.

Today we decided that we would show Mary Lou and Patty the area where their father was critically injured on July 24, 2013, as well as the Agira Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery. After a leisurely breakfast, we departed the B&B at about 10:45 am for the drive north.

We finally headed for home, and arrived here just about 5 pm. Sherry and I went for a lovely swim, while Patty and Mary Lou headed out to try to do some shopping. Unfortunately it was after 5 on a Saturday evening, and they could find nothing worthwhile. They returned to Villa Trigona, and we all agreed to just stay here for dinner again tonight. We will be off again tomorrow to a ceremony in Vizzini, and then following lunch we will see what we can find to do. We will have the receptionist here make a reservation for us at Al Folgher which is apparently a really nice restaurant, a little pricey, but very good.
