Selinunte (from Porto Palo di Menfi)
Friday 12 July
37:34.45N 12:54.3E Porto Palo di Menfi
09:00 Go ashore in dinghy where we are met by Richard and family. We all drive to nearby town in order to visit ATM and go to supermarket. We later called into their holiday home. Lovely place with an amazing garden full of exotic plants and a huge collection of cactuses We then drove to visit the ancient Greek city of Selinunte with its three temples and Acropolis. The relicts of the homes to its 100,000 inhabitants have largely gone. There were still some to see however and in one we were able to view an old Greek ‘chair bathtub.
After lunch back at Porto Palo we took Richard and family out to Bootlegger where we spent a pleasant afternoon swimming and generally chilling out. J prepared dinner for us. A salad and a risotto which we had in the cockpit. We took our guests back ashore just as darkness and Satin’s eyelids were falling. Another nice day.
