Doing some research online led me to the following information:
Stromboli is a small island in the Tyrrhenian Sea and is one of the most active volcanos on earth. The Stromboli volcano has been erupting almost constantly since 1932.
What a special treat this was to be able to circle the island of Stromboli not once but a total of 3 times. We spent approximately 6 1/2 hours circling this island.
Besides watching and photographing the island of Stromboli we mostly relaxed and I took some more of my Mediterranean Sea Art photos.
Here are some of the photos that I took of Stromboli, the volcano and my Mediterranean Sea Art:
This is the island of Stromboli. It is a small island that is just under 5 square miles and has 2 small villages which together have only 350 inhabitants. The island is just off of the North coast of Sicily
On top of this huge rock formation that juts up out of the sea lies a lighthouse
Here is one of the two small villages on Stromboli
Below you can see where the lava has made its way into the sea
After 3 passes around the island over a span of almost 6 hours it was time for us to leave and continue on our journey to Naples
Tomorrow we will be in Naples where we reserved a private guide to take us to the Amalfi Coast
