Location: Bonifacio, Corsica
This morning the crew of Argo was up before the sun and preparing to haul up anchor and make the short trip across the Bonifacio Straits from Sardinia to Corsica. Before entering the historic port of Bonifacio everyone took their turn at hopping in the dinghy to go swimming in a cave just outside the entrance. The crisp morning swim energized the crew, so that once we were settled into dock life we could set out on a stroll along the cliffs overlooking the town. The paths wind alongside the 300 foot cliffs for scenic view after scenic view. A few even decided to continue on down to the water to enjoy the beautiful beach at the edge of the crystal clear water. The rest of the day was spent enjoying the old town on the top of the cliffs and finally the ports night life for our inaugural night out.
