We arrived here after a relatively uneventful, but long overnight passage from Sardinia. We motored and motor-sailed the whole way and decided to bypass Ponza, one of a small volcanic island group known as the Pontine Islands, since we arrived there in the morning and had a beautiful day for the remaining 35 miles to the mainland. We found the marina in Gaeta full to capacity, but they found us a space next to the fuel dock for a night. We then made special arrangements to leave the boat for 12-days while we took our trip inland to Tuscany with Lisa’s family. Upon our return, they found space for us to winter-over here. We are very happy and relieved to be settled into such a pleasant place for the next few months.
