|The Costa Concordia makes a forlorn sight laying on|
her side off the harbour at Porto del Giglio
|The bay at Canelle looks like a good anchorage but most of the shallower |
water is the swimming area and out of bounds to yachts.
|Red pin is where we first anchored. Yellow arrow is the Costa Concordia.|
Red arrow is Giglio Castello
|Elba to Giglio 37.4 nautical miles – 6 hours 45 minutes |
Average speed 5.5knots - High speed 6.9knots
|32 names on the Costa Concordia memorial provide a stark reminder that the sea |
can be a very cruel place if you get complacent.
|Another flotation pod being placed on the Costa Concordia|
|Giglio Castello is a fantastic walled hilltop town|
|La Cistenna was a great little wine bar beside the town well. Perfect watering hole.|
|We caught the bus back down the twisting mountain road but got a little nervous|
when the driver kept turning around mid corner to chat to his lady friend
