Stromboli

I have been on anchor on Vulcano and on Salina but that one is not Filicudi. Filicudi is the one that appears some posts back in some sunsets, this one is a bit more far away: Stromboli, the vulcan that is still active.

The Island is beautiful but there is only one place where you can anchor (the rest is too deep) and if the wind is not right (and it was not) you have to stay on a lousy buoy (on a place with little protection) and pay 35 euros for tyhe privilege.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

paulo - been there, done that... on the 12th-13th of june actually
we wanted to go up, but it was cloudy and we arrived at stromboli pretty late, so we abandoned the idea...
a swiss boat was moored very close to us and although we both had all fenders out, crashed with its anchor into our pushpit during the night... luckily no damage done, but could have resulted in some serious havoc...

we past stromboli the other night on our way to salina and had the pleasure to see one of the bigger eruptions... that is an impressive sight when this mountain spits red, hot, molten stone a couple of hundreds of meter up into the nightsky...

That time I had not luck with the eruptions but some months later coming back from Greece to Fumicino (Rome) I had the pleasure to see it like a malignant red eye glowing in the night.

Vulcano

Some more pictures of a nice Island with a great anchorage:









Peter's boat. He is a member of this forum and gave me a big help regarding my accident here, offering himself as a witness.
