In September of 2005 my then-girlfriend-now-wife and I went to Italy. While on the island of Capri, we saw a water spout out in the Tyrrhenian Sea (the body of water between Italy’s “boot” and the island of Sardinia). At the time, I didn’t think much about it.
It was my first real trip out of the country and I just sort of thought it was a frequent occurrence in Italy. Additionally, I didn’t really know what was involved in creating a water spout, so we took a few pictures and moved on.
In retrospect, I wish we would have joined the fisherman pictured above and just watched the water spout move across the horizon.
Another picture of the water spout is located in the Europe Gallery page.
