Early risers this morning. Captain Aggie had cast off at 6 and motored out before Geoff and I had rubbed the sleepy dust from our eyes! The sunrise was beautiful and well worth leaving early for. The weather pattern at the moment seems to be calm and pleasant in the morning with increased wind and waves in the afternoon. As we had a relatively short journey today ...
... The rain lashed down with lightning and thunder all around, the seas got angry and the wind at its height was gale force 8 , 39 knots. A trifle blowy ! This lasted about an hour and by the end of it we were wet but still smiling. Eventually the rain stopped and and it warmed up again and we arrived in our next destination of Otranto.

The pasta, one with monkfish and one a bit more generic, was clearly homemade. The entrées were mostly fish, with some combination of prawns, calamari, and swordfish. We then had to try more classic desserts (spumoni, semifreddo and a coconut cake -- all delicious), since there was no gelato shop nearby. Now off to bed and another ...
