Location: Underway to Capri in the Messina Straits
Today we set sail at 6:00 am to start our journey to Capri. Although it is nice to sail through very calm waters, we were not able to put up our sails. One benefit to the calm waters was that we were able to turn off the motor and swim in the beautiful Mediterranean. We had several dolphin spottings and some of us even saw a sea turtle! Other spottings included Mt. Etna, an active volcano, and Scylla and Charybdis. The meals today were some of the best of the trip, including french bread pizzas, BBQ chicken sandwiches and carrot cake for dessert.
