A windy trip 6 miles around the NE tip of Syros
and into a deep bay. The wind was gusting from over the island and the water
was still quite choppy but the anchor held well and we took to the dinghy to
explore the restaurants ashore.
Well, we didn’t discover any to recommend but had an
average meal at the local hotel which was quite deserted, even the waiter went
home before we finished !
Next day we found a lovely place for lunch at the beach on
the West side of the bay serving delicious, homemade courgette pie.
After an afternoon snooze on the beach Bev & I swam back
to the boat – a fight against wind and waves – but we needed
the exercise !
Later we took the bus and enjoyed a tour of the Island,
checking out the next bay for moorings and eating dinner back in the main town
where Bev discovered delicious mashed Fava beans that we all tucked into.
Waiting for the bus above the bay at Ormos Varis, very windy
as you can tell from our hairstyles !
Blue Magic is at anchor, just to the right of Martin.
