On to Naples
It was not a particularly long trip about 35nm and we hoped to be in by early afternoon.
Going into Naples was straight forward and once inside the waterway the sea conditions were calm but still very windy. We were a bit undecided how long we were going to stay in Naples, originally thinking maybe a few days. After saying goodbye to our shipmates Dieter and Joan we looked hard at the weather. It was still very windy and we were not particularly thrilled with the notion of another rough ride further north if these conditions persisted. The forecast had the wind dying down in the evening, a good day the next day and then conditions the following day getting much worse. So late in the afternoon we decided to make a run for it the next day in what looked like a good weather window. Our next stop, Cabbage Key, home of "hamburgers in paradise".
