Taormina Isola Bella snorkeling day 24 August 2013
37:50.42N 15:16\ 82E Taormina anchorage
09:00 Picked up from Bootlegger by dive boat
and go around to National Park protected waters in
adjacent bay where we spend the morning , yes, you guessed
it; snorkelling. Saw lots of small fish including parrot
fish which J thought was unusual for this part of the
world. J dived for and retrieved two small pieces of
pottery from either a jar or bowl, one piece being part of
a handle. Found a few feet apart we assume they are from
the same piece of pottery.
After being returned to Bootlegger we have
lunch before taking a siesta. Later we took the dinghy
ashore where we had dinner which J treated us to before picking
up more provisions for our passage northeast to Gallipol,
in the heel of Italy.
