Thursday, 25th August, 2011.
We were up early and after breakfast left Nidri to travel to Preveza to meet Gordon and Jeannie who are joining us for the coming week. This week is going to be a little tame for Gordon after all the racing Jim and Gordon did together in a past life.
We motored out of Tranquil Bay and the wind kicked in and we had 26 knots coming from the North East. We thought at first it was fuelling between the mountains but we had it all the way up until we entered the canal and it just died. We timed it just right and made the eleven o’clock bridge opening and motored past the fort and out across the water and into the channel for Preveza. There was no room on the quay where water is available so we went along side our usual place further down the quay nearer the beach.
I left Ariel and went in search of a dentist. Unfortunately, the dentist closed at 12.30 for a long weekend and opens again next week!
In the early afternoon Gordon and Jeannie arrived safely after their Corfu flight, taxi to the port, straight on the ferry for Igoumenitsa where the taxi driver was waiting for them for the drive to Preveza. The journey went like a dream and it was not long after an afternoon beer we were swimming in the sea cooling down.
