Sardinia here we come

So, another early morning start, but today was exceptionally early, with the Taxi from “Road Runners”, turning up nearly an hour early at 0424. Oh well he had to wait whilst Alex got up.

So off to Gatwick South Terminal and onto B.A. electronic check in, which went so smoothly and without event. Past security and headed for a wonderful breakfast at “Wondertree”. Fantastic scrambled eggs with smoked salmon for me and beans on toast for Alex.

Alex, none to happy with the early morning start

We arrived in Cagliari airport bang on time and after switch passing through passport control and getting our bag, we walked out into the airport arrivals to the warmest of greetings from Marta and Arba. Alex took to them both immediately and after a short drive, we were on our new home of the yacht Aria.

Marta and Arba had to leave us, as Marta had some work to do. So Alex and I almost immediately went to the Aquila club/restaurant, for a great horse steak for Alex and the lunch menu for me. A starter, two mains, two desert, 1 litre of sparkling water and a soft drink all for €23.50

Sustenance after the long journey

Sorry uncle Ed, I sank your yacht, thanks for the invite…

It’s a hard life, but someone has to do it

After lunch we went back to Aria for a siesta, only being awoken by a visit from Massimo and then to the bar for some light refreshing drinks.

Alex and I then decided to take the bus (PF or PQ ) to Poetto beach. I bus can almost immediately and after 15 minutes we were on the sandy beach of Poetto and in the clear and warm waters. Medium sized rollers made a play in these fantastic water even more special and Alex was in his element and a million miles away from Polakoland. The bus ride back was just as easy and we returned just in time to have a shower in the marina facilities, thus not brining collected sand onto yacht, and for the arrival of Massimo and a welcome to his and Marta’s home and a fine meal of Spaghetti Bolognese. Massimo went out of his way to make this especially for AlexThe evening ended with the usual visit to the ice cream parlour and great view from the summit square overlooking Cagliari. A great first day and one that Alex and I will remember always….

Together, with the best of friends. A special meal of spaghetti Bolognese, made with love for Alex
