  • Day391

    So on Liberation Day we met two fellow Guerns, Jess and Chris on Sant’Antioco and had a lovely Italian lunch before they headed off to their campsite and we wondered around Calasetta town. We were lucky enough to be given two huge tuna steaks by a Brit who had caught the fish on his way over from Menorca, we BBQ’d them but ended up eating one that night and saving the other for Tuna Nicoise. The following evening we returned to San Pietro and went for a walk to get a coffee and a gelato (ice Cream) only to be sadly disappointed, nothing was open. To make up for this on our return to the boat we finished off our mint choc chip ice-cream!
    On Saturday we headed to the marina at Carloforte still on San Pietro and met Jess and Chris again they had taken the ferry across so a day of sightseeing, well wondering around the town and having that missed gelato. After an evening of gossiping we will be saying goodbye tomorrow and heading south to mainland Sardinia.

    Porto Malfatano

    May 15 in Italy

    So after leaving Jess and Chris to catch the ferry back to the mainland, they were headed north we were going south or we would have given them a lift, we left port and headed across to Sant’Antioco and then down the coast and then to the mainland proper. We went around some of the military restricted area but not all of it as it extended offshore a long way and we could see other yachts and fishing boats in the excluded zone. We saw some yachts anchored in bays in the exclusion zone and debated joining them but our chart said the bay contained unexplored ordinance and anchoring was prohibited so we moved on! In the end we settled for a bay just inside the exclusion zone by about 500m but no bombs. It was beautiful, small quiet, clear water and lovely sunshine. I had a lovely swim and John even managed a circuit of the boat, I could hear him all the way. Just a things were darkening we noticed some odd lights coming our way in the morning we found out a military transporter was nearby. The following night we went to the Port Teulada marina as higher winds forecast and yes they did arrive but we were snug in the marina we rode into town but as it was Sunday we could only get a coffee but it was a good one. Next day a short hop to where we are now, it was rougher than forecast and a little overcast we wandered ashore walked to tower with no door only a window you needed a ladder to reach and to the beach cafe, more coffee. Today we decided to do a bit of kayaking it was good but the paddle back was harder than anticipated as wind had come up while we were round the corner. Tomorrow’s plan is Pula will let you know how it goes.Read more

    Pula and ancient Nora

    May 16 in Italy

    From Porto Malfatano we hugged the coast to Pula and the ancient city of Nora. The coastline started harsh and beautiful and became wide open turquoise beaches lovely but developed. Things didn’t look too bad though because the trees hid the second row of houses etc. The beach just to the east of Cabo di Pula was where we anchored we got there early because we wanted to get some shopping done and weren’t sure if the supermarket would be closed 1-5 it wasn’t but we got to it in time anyway but it was a bit of a hike, the 40 mins on the way there was nice enough the trolley and bags were empty and the sky overcast, the walk back seemed to take a lot longer with full sunshine so we had a well earned ice cream before reboarding. The Italian family using the dinghy as a wind break and clothesline were most put out when we returned to claim it and take our shopping aboard. Later that day I went for a tour around the Roman ruins of Nora the town dated from Phoenician times but the Romans had built on top and recycled the stone so no real evidence in the ruins of the previous occupants just from the ceramics that had been excavated.Read more

    Tentizzos

    August 12 in Italy

    Half day in tentizzos surrounded by rocks that seem to come from the moon. Sea always amazing. Few local people. In places like these you need a mask, shoes dedicated to walk on the rocks, and all the will to explore the bottom of the sea.

    Tharros

    September 21, 2017 in Italy

    Op de zuidelijke punt van het schiereiland Sinis liggen de resten van Tharros, dat in de oudheid tot de belangrijkste steden van Sardinië behoorde. Tharros was een rijke havenstad en werd in 8e eeuw v. Chr. door de Feniciërs gesticht. Nu resteren slechts ruïnes. Van latere tijd is er ook een uitkijktoren van waaruit het uitzicht subliem is.

    Santa Christina

    September 22, 2017 in Italy

    Een heel bijzondere spirituele plek. Er zijn verschillende bezienswaardigheden. In een olijfgaard ligt een bronnentempel uit de Nuraghentijd. De bronnentempel heeft een astronomische uitlijning want de tempel werd ook als observatorium gebruikt. Verder, ook omringd door olijfbomen, is hier het oude bedevaartsoord Santa Christina te vinden, een kerkje omringd door kleine huisjes. Op feestdagen kwamen de bewoners uit omringende dorpen hier samen. In de huisjes kon men overnachten. Tot slot zijn er nog de resten van een Nuraghen nederzetting. Voor wie Sardinië bezoekt is een bezoek aan deze locatie een absolute must!Read more

    Tonara

    September 19, 2017 in Italy

    Een bergdorp op de weg tussen Belvi en Fonni. Een schitterende route met prachtige vergezichten. Bossen van kurk- en kastanjebomen, afgewisseld met naaldbomen en cypressen. Onderweg loslopende koeien, paarden, klimgeiten, ezels en zelfs een everzwijntje tegengekomen.

    Santu Antine

    September 19, 2017 in Italy

    Il nuraghe santu antine di torralba: op Sardinië zijn bouwwerken uit de bronstijd te vinden, de zogenaamde nuraghe's. De indrukwekendste is die van Santu Antine. Een bouwwerk met een centrale toren, een binnenplaats en drie kleinere torens, verbonden met sinistere gangen. Tegen de buitenwal aan zijn de resten van een dorp zichtbaar, dat nog tot in de romeinse tijd bewoond is geweest.
