Saturday,  6th October, 2012.


We were enjoying Ermioni very much and had decided to stay another night but the wind suddenly started to blow and push us closer onto the wall.  We pulled up the anchor and let go of the lines from the quay and motored just a few yards out into the bay where we re-anchored for a few hours.


The afternoon wind started blowing straight into the bay so we decided we would have enough light to sail or motor around to Porto Kheli for the night.


We managed to sail and enjoyed looking at the beautiful houses built on the mainland looking across to the Island of Spetses.  Some fabulous buildings with beautiful gardens, terraces, their own pontoons with a small beach or a ladder from the rocks and wonderful scenery.  The sad part is most appear to be shut up for the winter.


We covered 14 miles and arrived safely in Porto Kheli just before dark and in time to cook dinner.
