One of the best views because you're about to go sailing.

No volcanos, but had a nice sail today from Key Largo, and took this snap when I went up while anchored at lunch to check on the windex.......

we had some amazing views of Stromboli when there was a huge eruption with magma down to the water. apparently very rare and we were watching when it happened. we were then cleaning volcanic dust of the boat for weeks afterwards!

This isn't such a great picture, but, it represents what was a great solo sail for me the other day. The boat was perfectly balanced, and I was romping along back to the harbor in Milwaukee.

Very nice pictures. Yes it seems so. Yes on those parts it is always windy, that's what limit the number of boats and make the hot days agreeably cool.

I suppose you charter a boat? if you liked that next time charter from Naxos and sail the little Cyclades. Not the ancient architecture but traditional villages great (almost) deserted anchorages much less sailboats and much nicer prices on restaurants. Off course it is even probably more windy

There have been many. But I came across this one last week...The good part is after the 8:00 mark.


After looking through this thread, the tropics are starting to look attractive again though...

This happened, beginning at 0300, on 08/29/2014 in Rabaul, PNG. Mt. Tavurvur is the offending volcano.

No danger from hot lava falling on the boat but golf ball size pieces of tephra rained down (hence the hat went on at 0330!) Below are some links about the eruption, one from the NY Times and one is to a crew member's video and flickr page. just spectacular! however, the cleanup continues, and will continue for the forseeable future. ash gets EVERYWHERE. perfect excuse for me to get off my duff and rebuild winches...
