Time for our Evening Meal.

Anne and I had a week to ourselves and spent most of that week on just two islands. The first was Ithica and we moored up on the quay side at Kioni. The second was Kefalonia and we dropped anchor just outside the harbour at Fiscardo. Here we used Lulu our dingy to...

An evening under the deck lights.

An evening under the deck lights. The full moon that night was quite stunning but this photograph shows.  An evening under the deck lights. Does not really show it as was seen if you were there. A clear sky allowed the moon to light up the sky and one could make out...

Good Forecast

The day had started with some heavy cloud and prospects of rain. The weather forcast however was suggesting a clear and sunny afternoon. We decided to spend the morning exploring the island where we spent the previous evening. Sure enough the clouds soon started to...

Pegs ahoy

Even when on holiday there are those chors that have to done. With plenty of hot water on board half an hour was spent by some of the crew recycling and pegging them out on the safety lines. Not surprisingly it didn’t take long before all were dry and Inachos...

The Warm Med

Once they are in you just cannot get them out!  Don’t blame them I hear you say and actually, neither do I. The warm waters of the Med are just so enticing and by September in some of the shallow bays the sea water can feel like a warm bath. Lunch beckons and...

Local Bubbly

The crew have had a very active day and after a jolly good meal at Christas Taverna they all came back to Inachos and opened a bottle of local bubbly wine that went down very well. Not a very early night then and so we all agreed to have a late start the next day....

Happy Days

The new cooker fitted a couple of years ago is still looking new and sparkerly. Why? Well it’s simple. It’s just not used that much for cooking. It brews up on a dailey basis but with such a glorious selection of Tavernas where ever we stop over night, who...

Time to Eat

The bright lights of Sivota are beckoning  us and after a good day sailing we are all well ready to go in and enjoy the night life that’s there. We left Fiskardo earlier that morning and had a great sail across to the island of Lefkas. Managed a good lunch in...

A Bay to Ourselves

We had little to no wind this morning and had been motoring along for over an hour. We had stayed close to the island (Meganissy) and a small entrance appeared on our port bow. We all instantly agreed we had go in and explore.  It didn’t look very promising at...

A Busy Day

The weather forecast for this day was very mixed and we started with a complete cloud covering over the sky. However within an hour or two the clouds parted and the sun rays burst on to us. We quickly prepared for the day ahead and set off for some good sailing that...

Going Nowhere

We had arrived at this smashing bay and after some swimming and a good lunch we hoped for some wind and a good sail that afternoon. The forecast suggested there would be only a light wind and we didn’t even get that. So we made ourselves comfortable and enjoyed...
