It's another day at anchor today, this time at Lipari, off the cost of Sicily. We were on the land side, just a mile or two from the shore. This is today’s Veranda View, the cathedral of St Bartholomew.

We took the tender ashore, which is interesting when you are travelling with a wheelchair. As you might expect the crew were experts and we landed (and returned) with no major dramas. Of course it helped that the sea was flat calm.

The town has a beautiful waterfront, behind which are a maze of narrow streets dull of shops selling local fruit & vegetables and all the usual souvenirs. We didn't stay long because the temperature was in the 90's and by the time we got back we were soaked in sweat.

We did however find an interesting place to eat, should the cruise not have been all-inclusive.

Must dash now for a shower. We're meeting folks in the bar for pre-dinner drinks at 6.pm.
