Saturday, we left Ponza and made our way to Ventotene Isola which was about a 20 mile ride. We arrived in Ventotene which is one of the largest of the Southeastern group of the Pontine Islands mid-afternoon on Saturday. The old port is called Port Vecchio and very small and built around rock and manmade jetties. We tied up bow in due to the protruding rock ledge under the water at the quay side. Busy dive area and the port was mainly comprised of dive shops and dive boats coming and going. The Captianarie in Italy is more commonly called the Ormeggiatori and it is never truly clear which person holds that title. We had a lovely afternoon visiting the town and hanging out in the main plaza drinking cassis. We had filled the water tanks so we could take hot showers on the boat. One of the true pleasures of this boat when you have water and good shore power is our shower!. Ken and I found a pleasant restaurant and made plans to have a dinner date Saturday night. Page cooked back at the boat for Mike and Alan.
