A record (Log) of jj.boat's travel
Mid Summer 2010
Arrived Porto Nuove, Presidiana. Cefalu.
June 17 Pam, Norm Ann and Keith leave to make there way to Greece. It will be a few years before we meet up again. We will stay a few days here, till the winds come from the West.
June 18 to 22 Stayed in Cefalu, strong wind forecast. Saw the town, walked around the coast on a special path, saw a blow hole, where the sea goes into a cave and comes out under pressure as a spout. Went to the Saturday market, the wind cam on the Sunday, lots of other boats re-anchored We just moved about at anchor. We were close to the shore and the wind was like a whirl pool, so we faced all directions. As the wind moved around to the North West we re-anchored by the Sea wall. June 23
Got up early as the wind was forecast to be better before lunch, but it is not. Waited till 09:30. Wind is now 10 knots.
Left Porto Nuove, Presidiana. Cefalu.
Sailing along at 5 to 6 knot's, all sails up. Sat catching up with e mails. Sunny and warm with a blue blue sea. We are heading for Santa Agata, if it's calm we will stay the night and go on to then island of volcano, Porto di Levante. Not really a pot, just an anchorage.
Porto di Levante.
What a walk/climb
But is was worth it
The view from the top
The view in smoke
I just had to go in and see what it was like, I came out safely
Now lets go down deep into the Earth?
