... 28 August
After some rude awakenings (not as many as yesterday but nevertheless) we ventured to
our next destination. This part of the Smeralda coast is just peppered with mega yachts with the occassional sailing yacht being tossed around in their wake.
We settled on anchoring in Calla di Volpe where there are lots of mega yachts anchored as well as a very expensive hotel with basic rooms starting from £1000 per night.

We could easily stayanother day but the winds are supposed to change direction andincrease, so we moved to another anchorage.
Went ashore and completed some provisioning and enjoyed a reasonable lunch.

We walk through the water to the waterfall and briefly place our bodies against it while shrieking from the cold water! It's so beautifully refreshing and it will keep us cool for our long assent!
The walk back up is tiring and long and our legs and thighs are burning from the walk. We take it ...
... SantaTeresa in Sardinia.....about 1 hour.
Santa Teresa is on the on the northern most tip of Sardinia, and the coast. Of Corsica can be seen from this mainland. The town has a population of 5000 but increases this time of the year to 10,000 to 15,000. [PHOTO_ID_R=santa-teresa
We arrived at about 5pm and took a tour of the town centre.
Dinner that night was cod fish pieces and muscles with a cummin sauce and salad.
