We had a brief but lovely sail along the coast of Ischia and then anchored among three other boats beneath the Aragonese castle in a small bay created by the causeway which connects a rocky promontory to the main island of Ischia. Once the hook was down, we had to turn our attention to a couple of final maintenance tasks which didn’t get completed before departure from Gaeta.  It should be no surprise that we put-off cleaning out a waste discharge hose for the head (toilet) until it was absolutely necessary! We took care of the dirty deed right away, and a short while later, we were celebrating another job done by washing the boat and ourselves down with the new deck/cockpit shower we installed over the winter. All of this was just in time to watch the moon rise over the island of Capri in the distance. We shared a bottle of Greco di Tufa (one of our favorite white wines) and enjoyed the peacefulness of being at anchor once again.
