The Admiral loves the these FitFlop shoes she bought in Ponza, the old Roman island of Pontia. It is said the Greeks may have had a colony, long before the Etruscans and then the Romans arrived; it is said this is Circe's island, where Ulysses spent a year drinking and feasting. The owners of the shoe store said Caroline Grimaldi, of Monaco, is an annual visitor and customer of theirs.
Ponza is a low-key place we liked, a place where myth can be difficult to discern from reality. A place where one might very well spend a carefree year.
