We spent the winter in the small town of Gaeta, Italy in the marina here. We had a fantastic time, learning some Italian, doing lots of cooking and boat projects with our good friend, and the only other live-aboard in the marina, Jayne, and traveling by land to Venice, Cinque Terre, Switzerland, Germany, Czech Republic, the Amalfi Coast, and Sicily. There were also lots of short trips within the Rome-Naples area, and a wonderful 6 week trip back to the USA for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Now we have finished our annual haul-out and have started to cruise again. After a one week shake-down to Ventotene, Ponza and Palmerola, we are back in Gaeta now but in the anchorage rather than the marina. When our new motor mounts arrive next week and we get them in, we'll be off, headed west. Join us by checking this site to see where we are and what we are up to.
