In Elba since end of July. The crossing over from Corsica (9 hours) went well. We found a safe bay to anchor were we are staying for 5 days. It is quite noisy and busy here with five campgrounds all around the bay nicely hidden among pine trees. The upside of the commotion is: always ice cream in reach, great recycling facilities, cheap rotisserie chicken, German newspapers and magazines, some groceries for sale, a bakery AND – free Zumba workout twice a day in the water at the beach! The music is blasting all across the bay, so you can’t help but move it, too.
More good news: The water is even warmer than in Corsica and there were NO sightings of medusae/Quallen/jellyfish, yet.
Now it is “jet ski time” for Leonie’s birthday. The kids are waiting impatiently in the dinghy. She’ll tell you about it tomorrow, probably.
