Left Kos 2ish Sunday afternoon after discovering Kos to be the most 'bike friendly' island so far, cycled around Kos Town on an amazing network of cycle paths along with hundreds of people (most of whom looked dubiously unfit!) who were on hire bikes.  A strong West wind (22-25 knots) blew us around the end of the Bodrum peninsular and into a bay called Ilkicik Koyu (back to Turkey again) where we anchored in the bay, just in time to watch  the evening aerobics session in Italian at a nearby Hotel, as the evening went on the entertainment hotted up as the Italian Saga crowd bopped to a pretty awful female Italian singer who blasted out popular Italian classics (they must have all been deaf as it was deafening out at sea!), then the French Hotel next door started in competition with an Elvis type impersonator!  The French and Italian over 60's sure know how to enjoy themselves.  The entertainment re-started during breakfast as aerobics on the jetties to Rod Stewart took place.  Hard as it was to tear away from all this fun, we set sail 11ish in a good strong North West wind (14-17 knots) and 6 hours later we arrived on the island (Greek) of Nisos Agathonisi, not undiscovered as 3 yachts were already there, so avoided the tiny fishing village and moored in a nearby bay. After a walk up the hill to the tiny uninspiring village decided not worth exploring on bikes so off to Samos tomorrow.
