Location: Porto Azzuro, Elba

Argo gave its crew a much needed day of rest after a long, hectic day yesterday. The crew and I woke up with yet another beautiful Italian landscape to soak up while we all slowly came on deck for breakfast. The morning was focused on getting the boat tidy and divers taking an exam. Eventually, most of us made it the quarter-mile dinghy ride ashore to Elba before lunch. The neat freaks went and did laundry while the majority of us wandered around the small town, trying to see as much as possible before the dinghies were sent back to fetch us in the late afternoon. Students gathered around 4:30 to plan the next week’s class schedule, overall, an equal balance of fun and “work.” The day was wrapped up with a tasty pasta dinner and class to give everyone a good rest after a wonderful day of exploring. set date:2012-09-26
