Tuesday 31st May
We left the islands at 0630 and motored again
heading south for our next stop - a small fishing and ferry port on the
mainland. It was a misty start with no wind
but with a favourable current we were very soon at
our destination. We had been told about this place by friends met in Kusidasi
and it has proved to be well worth the stop.
A small town with a well sheltered harbour
where yachts are welcomed by an English speaking Harbour Master. There is water
and electricity on the concrete quay and boats tend to go along side
rather than anchor and reverse in. It was market
day today so we were able to purchase some cherries and apricots as well as some
delicious freshly baked bread. The ferry comes here twice a day
from Istanbul and we discovered that the owners of
a French yacht moored here have left it for a month while they go home! The HM
is looking after it!!
Plan to leave tomorrow for a longer sail to the
island of Marmara.
