After breakfast I took a trip into Lipari on a motor scooter Stefano had hired to drop some washing off to a local launderette and also replenish our food supplies for the next few days. We even managed to negotiate a great price for fish from a local fisherman.

Later we met up with Marta and Massimo and took a leisurely walk to the old harbour and an Obsidian shop, and purchase a piece for my growing stone collection.

The town is absolutely beautiful, with narrow, charming streets, beautiful churches and full of jewellery and souvenir shops, not to mention many many restaurants. We choose one and treated ourselves to some fantastic pizzas. We then moved onto a patisseries, where I had been the previous year with Ed and Bill and had a cannoli.

Finally a walk back along the shore with greatly views of the bay to do some maintenance on Arya.
