Today we did a short 10 mile hop and anchored off Amalfi. Not the most comfortable night with all the ferries and trip boats roaring past causing a lot of wash but a very pretty view from the cockpit. All over Italy they have fireworks every night during August, not sure why but probably to celebrate a Saint's Day, and we were treated to a fantastic display from one end of the bay to the other. This was followed by a flotilla of little boats roaring around us whooping and blowing horns which we enthusiastically joined in with.
Anne and Gordon off Equinox, who many of you will know from our last Pacific crossing, and Ian Mikado and his girlfriend, Michelle are on board with us for a week so it was a treat. Anne claimed they had organised is specially! Thank you. St Morag!
