rotation Costa Concordia Giglio Island
For the love of adventure , we went for a day at Isola del Giglio, a lovely family outing . This beautiful and unspoilt island hides the fabulous coves where you go in the sun and the sea is incredibly clear and full of colorful fish. Unfortunately , lately talk of Giglio is synonymous with the unfortunate accident of the Costa Concordia . But ... tell our adventure in order ...
Our day / adventure started in Porto Santo Stefano where we embarked towards Giglio Island with one of the many ferry connections .
For about an hour we had to admire the blue sea , the blue sky and occasionally some fish darting out of the water . Too bad no dolphins ! ... We are told that many live dolphins in these waters but they show up only in the early morning , near the coast of Isola del Giglio. Maybe next time we wake up before! ...
Dolphins do not see but they have made a brave gull ( seagull ) to be carried up from the ferry and does not seem to be afraid of the tourists. We get closer and he looks at us and approaches . A child throws some crumbs of bread and he seems happy to receive so much attention .
Finally we come to the island of Giglio . As I said there are infinitely many wonderful places in this island , unfortunately the first thing you see is the Costa Concordia lying on its side , right next to the harbor. A sad sight . Everything was built around a huge yard work slowly and try to take away the immense iron beached whale .
As I said there are Isola del Giglio wonderful places, and we want to achieve one, a small cove not far from the port to be able to relax in the sun and a swim . ( Cat NineNineNine )
Along the way we meet a cannon pointing right toward the schooner where we're headed . Whether it be a warning to us tourists? ... ( Do not Disturb )
Finally in the water! ... Cheers ! ...
To improvise a game of those sculptures made with stones in equilibio , a sort of strett art , even art of landing . It 's funny ! ...
The day passed very quickly , thoroughly enjoyed ourselves . We walk towards the ferry back to the mainland ... halfway see in the distance the Costa Concordia . Seen from this distance it looks like a big whale playing in the sea .
From the port of Giglio Island you can see the Costa Concordia , appears in all its grandeur. And ' immense. From where we are we can see that next to a small red lighthouse Madonnina (Holy Mary) ; please right toward the ship , I remember all the people who have disappeared in that tragic accident.
All around the ship yard work . Even in the distance you can see the sparks of torches . A large frame was attached to the side discovery . They say it will serve as a counterweight to overturn the great ship .
We get on the ferry back to the mainland ... we spend in front of the wreck. It reads perfectly written Costa Concordia . I am reminded of the Titanic . Impressive . Sad . It seems an impossible thing even if it is real and in front of my eyes.
The return crossing is quiet and peaceful , just like the first leg. As usual, look for a place outdoors to enjoy the view in peace.
We take a photo of the choppy sea to the passage of our ferry .
We check into the distance, unfortunately no dolphins . I was hoping to see one . For now, only a boat that sails this peaceful Mare Nostrum at full speed.
My Brother goes exploring and finds a small room where the suits are pinned , there is an inscription above FE and some signs that read: Brandudrustning ! ... But ! ... Hopefully we will not need it because we have not the slightest idea what they are ! ...
In fact printed on a pylon are other explanations distressing ! ... As you can see they are not easy to read . I have a doubt : we maybe wrong ferry ? ...
