Location: Elba, Italy

Early this morning, we moved the boat to the far side of Porto Ferrario, where we would commence a morning hike overlooking the harbor and city. After the hike, we returned to Argo for some lunch and a scheduling meeting in which we planned our next seven days aboard. Later, there was some free time spent swimming, studying, and stocking up on sleep in anticipation of our night’s passage. Well rested, we prepped the boat before dinner and then hauled the anchor up after eating. Having just enjoyed a peaceful sunset over the mirror-calm water, we are currently heading back to sea, this time headed for Porto Venere in Italy’s Cinque Terre region.
