We have started our trip back - covering old ground, we need to be in Sicily by October so we need to start heading in that direction.
Today we head back to a nice bay we visited awhile ago which has a fresh water spring. Last time here we couldn't spot it but is obvious now.
There is another thunder storm during the night and next day it rains all day. Unheard of. By early afternoon the thunder is back and the wind with it. We are anchored with lines ashore tied to rocks. One of the rocks gives out and we are forced to pull the anchor and head for a safer spot. The sea is large, but we are running with the wind so it doesn't feel too bad. A few hours later we pull into a sheltered bay.
Three days later and we are still here - the thunder storms keep coming as does the rain. Reading the news online we are better off at sea, on land there are flash floods and people missing.
The forecast is for more over the coming days, we might be here a while yet. Our trek west might have to wait.
We're an ordinary family of 5 dreaming, planning and now beginning our adventure around the Mediterranean (and further afield), having an awesome time! Look out for our boat and come and say hi.
