Gulf of Naples

It's been a pretty slow week for us here onboard Morpheus. 

The weather turned bad right after our return from Rome. Grey rainy skies and lots of thunder and lightning. The seasons are changing for sure. 

Not motivated to explore in that weather, we left the marina in Pozzuoli, motored aprox 1,000 yards and dropped the anchor in the lee of the marinas nice big breakwater!  And there we stayed for two and a half days. Lots of time for all the small projects we had been putting off, plus a few movies, etc.

Yesterday, the skies cleared as Summer like weather returned. We took off with the goal of circumnavigating the islands of Ishia and Procida. It was a great day and ultimately we anchored off a small town on the island of Procida for the night. 

Now midday on the 27th, and we are heading back to Capri.   Another beautiful day and the crowds of Summer are long gone. 

All is well!
