Update 10

We are currently anchored off the village of Portoferraio, Elba. Napoleon was in exile here in 1814. We met up with Rande and Ceal in Rome and did a two day tour of the sites returning to Sea Star on Sunday the 21st which was at the Marina Cala Galera. Today we will sail to the Southern side of Elba and anchor. Thursday we will cross to Bastia, Corsica, about 35 NM away and clearly visable from where we are now because of the high mountains. We plan to cruise there for about 4 weeks.
The weather has been perfect, low humidity, sunny days and cool evenings, perfect. Once we get to Corsica I will no longer have the ability to connect to the Internet as I will be switching back to the French phone system. Hopefully we will find some Internet cafes to use to stay in touch.
