Pacific Crossing of 09 Reunion
09 August 2014 | Salerno
On our last big trip on Drimia, we met some fantastic cruisers and have stayed good friends with many of them. We were lucky enough to be joined by a couple of our favourites this week, Anne and Gordon off Equinox and Ian Mikado and his girlfriend, Michelle, who we hadn't met before but who managed to fit in like she'd been cruising forever! Gordon and Anne, who for some strange reason we called Morag and Flash, live in Scotland but have a house in Abruzzi in Northern Italy and Ian and Michelle are Aussies from Brisbane.
They were only able to stay with us for 5 days so we sailed a whole 83 miles (well, motored) from Salerno to Amalfi to Agropoli and back to Salerno but managed to eat and drink for most of that time and laugh. It was so good to have them with us and we tried to persuade them to come on the 4-day crossing to Mahon in Menorca but apparently they preferred to go back to Abruzzi and sample several of the local wines and eat Anne's fabulous Italian cooking. Can't think why.
