Porto Giglio – Last of the Tuscan Islands
On Wednesday, we arrived at Porto Giglio, last of the beer drunk, needing showers and finding that at 4pm, all stores are closed (what they had of them) and the visitors pontoon was crowded with small motor yachts. Plenty of room on their concrete quay so we tied up. No electric and the water is not drinkable so we hauled several containers full for our drinking water. Alan made a deal with the Ormeggiatori (Italian for Capitanaire) that he would take our 2.5 gal tank of gas we DID NOT NEED, in exchange for our berth fee for the night. We had to leave on Thursday by 2pm because some ferry’s were expected for the quay. No problem. We got the empty tank back and filled it with Diesel as our back up plan for running out of fuel. (later proved useful as we ran out of gas heading into our next marina after our overnight motor)
