So I haul out the my atlas just now to see a proper spelling of the Tyrrhenian Sea, where the image below of the sun rising over the western coast of Italy was snapped May 12 as we made our way to the port of Civitavecchia and then inland to Rome for the day, and in looking around the big boot we boated about I found out that our ship’s course charted us through five seas: the Adriatic, Ionian, Mediterranean, previously mentioned Tyrrhenian and Ligurian.

Makes me wanna get a tattoo of an anchor or something.
