|Lipari was an unexpected gem|
We enjoyed a sedate but nice downwind sail next morning on our way to the island of Vulcano. That’s right, this actively volcanic island is actually named Vulcano.
|Leaving our anchorage on Basiluzzo and our superyacht neighbour astern.|
|Isla Basiluzzo to Volcano – 23.8 Nautical Miles – 3 Hours 32 Minutes |
Average Speed 3.6 Knots – Max 6.9 Knots
|Our anchorage on Vulcano with the gaping crater just to the south.|
|Let's all jump in the almost boiling mud on Vulcano. It'll be fun.|
|Obviously this girl was just trying to save at least half her |
swimmers from being eaten away by the mud.
|The mud pits are at the far end of the black sand beach at the foot of the|
very much live and kicking volcano.
|The fuel dock was right beside on Lipari with toys like this huge rib making |
plenty of wake to keep us rocking and rolling all day.

|It was awesome exploring the winding streets of the older parts of Lipari town|
|This building has been everything including a Greek then Roman temple and |
Moorish mosqueover the centuries of various occupations of the island before
finally being reborn again as a Norman Cathedral.
|Remnants of Greek columns in the cloister of the cathedral|
