Lethargic. That is how I felt all day as we took a ferry to the islands of Alicudi and Filicudi. It was a warm still day and the water was calm and deep blue. I had not slept well the last few nights as we were eating later, getting to bed later, and then been woken up at 2, 3 and 4 am as fishing boats head out to sea from the Marina.
The islands were beautiful and peaceful, with very few residents living on them year round. Alicudi actually had no real roads, and donkeys were used to transport most goods up and down the hilly terrain.
Took a swim at both islands and felt refreshed for a short time, but the motion and sound of the motors soon put me back into a stupor and on the last leg back to Lipori, eventually fell fast asleep. A lovely, lazy day. We have now been to 6 of the 8 Aeolian islands.
