So we headed out to the Aeolian Islands. Ironically, these islands are named after the Greek god Aeolus, the god of wind. I say ironically, because we haven’t seen a breath of wind since we got here. But that makes for some very smooth motoring and an opportunity to see some amazing things along the way, like the dolphins below.
We anchored, had a stellar dinner cooked by Tom and Alden and we enjoyed swimming in the cool refreshing waters here. We awoke early enough to hike to the top of the volcano to explore. We were able to get all the way around the rim and back before lunch, which we had on the boat. We are resting now and plan to go into Lipari for dinner tonight. There are lots of pictures to share today so I hope you enjoy! Peace and love to all of you out there.
