Today we sailed (er motored) to the island of Stromboli. This island is the most active volcano in this little group of islands and has a history that goes back the ancient Greeks. It is know as the oldest lighthouse in the world since it glows red at night and was used by the ancients to navigate at night.
We were able to see it in action after we took our daily swim break. It rumbles like a low thunder about every 20 minutes or so and a huge plume of lava spews up into the air. They offer tours of this volcano for those brave enough to climb it. Any takers out there?
