We should stay a few days here before moving to the south. If you just come and go you never get a feel for the place.
On our way here we stopped at a harbor, Lakka, where we passed some people we met in malta while anchoring. Reinhold, Deborah and their friend Ray. It is always good to see people you have met.
We went to dinner a couple of nights to their favorite place. They have been coming for 3 or 4 years. By going to the same place you get special local drinks and desserts. The people are so friendly and helpful if you need to find something.
We then moved to Gaios town and parked at the key. I went to a local place where they press olives. I got a liter of olive oil right from the barrel of the first pressing. Rumor has it, that Harrods comes here to label their olive oil.
We will be moving to Sivota harbor in the next days. The water there is supposed to be so clear. The water here is at 85F. It is almost warm enough for me.
Check in a few days as we move to the port where we will pick up guests. We will put on the spot.

We are in the water finally.
The water line has been changed to accommodate the extra weight we have in the aft.
The spots from the salt water have been touched up on the mast and spreaders. Allis repainted.
We think we may stay here another couple weeks. People say the wind in
The ports on the east coast of
We now know the market is for good buys on fish and fresh food. There are some other things to do here but we just haven’t had any time making sure everything is ready for the launch.
We have met some good people here which always make it more interesting and you get good information.
The Pope was here Sunday; we were in the area and saw the crowds’ downtown but not the Pope up close.
Once we get I the water we will activate the spot and in the next few days we will need to do a shake down sail off the coast before we head out.
Keep in touch.
