To Sicily

We got to San Giovanni, Reggio Calabria's port, by early afternoon and hopped the next Blue Lines ferry to Messina.
And there is Le Duc, first camper in a procession of mostly
tractor trailers

Pushing off with the side thrusters

The Strait of Messina is a ferry paradise, scores of them
constantly coming and going across the 2 mile stretch; it is
also a Homeric place, much of the Odyssey occurring in or
near these waters

En route to Sicily

Hydrofoil, for those in a hurry

Cleared for landing at Messina

We sailed aboard the good ferry Fata Morgana, well worth looking up...
