I can't believe I almost forgot to show you pictures of cruising past Stromboli. As you can see it is an active volcano. On one side of the island there is a village and the other side is where the lava flows down to the sea. I found it hard to believe people lived here, I mean it is an active volcano, one that we could quite clearly see the red lava flow. I hope they all have boats to get off the island quickly if they need too. We went past the volcano late in the evening. My sweetie and I had some champagne the cruise line had given us for our 30th wedding anniversary so we sat on the deck and watched the volcano and drank champagne. It was wonderful and we both enjoyed it.
