We departed early in the morning, passing some nice cliffs and rocks.
We talked about sailing North along the Italian coast, weather forecast was not very good, and we heard from our neighbors last night that they had a terrible night passing Adriatic on Friday with wind gusts up to 50 knots.
We sailed towards Ancona first and saw a lot of boat garages. I think some are being used as small beach houses now. But I like how colorful they are.
Captain took over from me little before 4.00 in the morning. There was a red dawn again. This is taken when the sun was already up over Piran, Slovenija.
The weather was true to that old saying again. NE wind was up again, over 30 knots of it, and it was a wet and wild ride to Monfalcone, Italy.
In one of the canals we found home for Heron, at least for a while, in Nautec Marina.
We are heading home in the afternoon. Next days we will be coming back to Heron often, we want to bring back home all the clothes, tools, books, etc., to be able to clean Heron thoroughly. And to do a lot of boat projects. And then to only bring on board stuff that is absolutely needed.
There will be some celebration in the next days, but today we're too tired to think about that. Even too tired to feel the satisfaction and pride about what we achieved. But I'm sure that will come soon.
There is still a lot of untold stories from our journey I would like to post here. And probably we will want to proudly present the results of our boat improvements. And the stories will emerge from our weekend sailing or other trips. So this isn't over yet, there's more to come.
