A lovely anchorage, but exposed to winds from the NW and N.  We enjoy three days of light winds and warm temperatures.  Our last swimming of the season.

Lovely public beaches, busy by day and deserted by nightfall.  Tiny marina, for shallow draft boats.  One restaurant, one bar and tiny convenience store.

The area was an iron mining and smelting area for centuries.  Slag was meters high, covering an Etruscan Necropolis.  The area is now a national heritage site, with an interpretation center and tours.

The tiny marina.

Warning reminds us of home in BC.

We climb to the top of the "nearby" hill.

Passat II in the anchorage.

Tiny church on the beach, still in use.

Graves cut out of the rock face.

Inside a stand alone tomb.

The sun sets on our last night at anchor for the season.
