Our first full day in Alghero, involved getting to know the local town, streets filled with various architecture, and enjoying the heat as it roasted towards 35┬░C.

Our arrival to Neptune’s Grotto, was rather precarious as we battled large sea swells, and had to literally walk the┬ámoving┬áplank into the┬ácave.
