Sep 23, 2018 - Stromboli

Had a nice driving tour around Lipari, a huge lunch and then boarded a hydrofoil to Stromboli. Kind of sad to be leaving Lipari, it is a gem. Beautiful black sand beaches here on Stromboli with calm seas. I think we can endure the hardships of life here. Had a terrific evening. We ate at an outdoor pizzeria under a full moon and intermittent eruptions of the Stromboli volcano. We were like kids at a candy store when we saw the flames.

Whew. Can I tell you how awesome it was to sleep in a little,...

After dropping the anchor in a bay under the...

Oct 10, 2013 - Stromboli and Strait of Messina

Scenic cruising day at sea Today was a scenic cruising day as we leave the west coast of Italy and head for Corfu tomorrow. At 10am we passed slowly by the volcanic Island of Stromboli. It is continually active with some fire balls erupting a few times a day. Some of you may remember the movie “Stromboli” with the beautiful Ingrid Bergman and director Roberto Rossellini. The cruise continued through the Strait of Messina; a narrow channel between Italy and Sicily which can be quite a challenge to ships at certain times. It was a lovely...
