We anchored in the bay just outside the marina for the night. Went ashore to explore and for dinner in the evening. Apart from the very ugly hotel as you approach the bay, it is a very quaint beautiful old Greek walled village. Quite bohemian in atmosphere and people, lots of elderly people sitting around outside their houses with headscarves and long dresses. We had a fairly good meal at a restaurant on the front.
The following morning we motored around to the next bay to visit the ruins of ANCIENT TEOS.
This is and ancient Ionian City set amongst very old olive groves. The city was established by Minyans and later became Ionian and important centre for actors, poets. These people travelled widely with their art and gained great fame. The lyric poet Anacreon was born in Teos in about 572 BC. and died there 85 years later chocking on a grape pip whilst at a rather debauched banquet.
