Fetovaia, Elba, Italy 18/9-2011
Sailing distance made: 4652 nautical miles
From Corse we were heading east to Elba, an island off the Italian west coast. Here we have now spent some lovely days in the cosy small bay of Fetovaia.
The main reason we came to this destination was to meet and visit the marine research institution, Hydra, which is located here since 1995.
When arriving the institution we got a lovely welcome. Also here they are working with under water filming and our many common interests gave us lots to talk about and experiences to share...
We also went out diving with the team, who all have been very kind and helpful during our stay here in Fetovaia.
The last days diving conditions have been outstanding. Calm sea, sun and clear blue water...
... perfect conditions for under water photographers... :)
With the camera always ready and lots of film objects around it feels like the time is running. There is so much to see and so much to immortalize...
In the same time I focus at my work and the camera is recording I wish I could stay here, underneath the waves, all day long instead of returning to the surface again soon ...
After a wonderful time here in Elba we are now continuing our sailing south, along the west coast of Italy.
With diving- and snorcel equipment in stand by and an eye always looking to the horizon we will soon experience what will be the next encounter... ;)
