Thank you so much, Cats2! It is such a gorgeous place, Giglio. People were very kind. Yes, the tourists have brought much money, but think of the cost.
Anyway, I was glad to be able to add something to BVI People Talk! All best to my friends, Joan

It has been changed to tomorrow, but the ship is finally due to be towed away. And yes I was reading that the island has had an influx of money from all the divers, technicians, scientists, etc., who have been working on salvaging the wreck. They will miss the money but I think the island certainly will not miss the very sad Costa Concordia.

It will take a couple of months just to remove all the platforms and equipment they used to get it upright.

I am sure that you are correct with regard to that. I will try to remember to pop in tomorrow to see if there is a live feed from the towing operation. I presume there will be.

Here's a photo from July 2012, 6 months after the accident. Taken from about 25,000'

Soncijo - I have missed your turtle pictures!

We had the privileged of swimming with a Hawksbill for about 40 minutes last week. They are so beautiful and such gentle creatures! Got some really nice pics.
