On the 4th I caught ferry to Piombino and then train to Rome. Stayed at Hotel Babuino 181. Alex arrived in evening from London. Had dinner with Andrea Simonetti from Ghella.
On the 5th went to a couple of boat marinas to organise winter storage. Andrea was a great help and I very much appreciated his assistance.
Met Jude at Fiumcino airport and then we voted at the Aussie embassy, then back to Piombino to catch ferry to Portoferraio, Elba, arriving about 9:30 in evening. This morning Al and I set up the smart tv to connect to internet - currently watching Swans v Hawks. C'mon Swans!
Pix at Portoferraio.
Great spot, atmosphere at sights. Will check out local area in between footy matches.
Is the flag big enough AL??!
