Fiskardho, Cephlonia.  Monday 9th July, 2012.

Another bright sunny day and we motored/sailed up to Fiskardho.  To our delight it was very quiet when we arrived and we had the pick of where to anchor and reverse on to the quay.  Several jolly boats came in with their guests paying huge sums to be motored from one island to another.  We spotted no one famous but word was about that Tom Hanks had been seen on a big boat along with the owner of Chelsea Football Club on one of his four fabulous ships. The quay is a great place for people watching in the evenings also.  We did rub shoulders with Dr. Kovak from ER at Gatwick on Saturday morning unfortunately he was not on our plane!

The walk to the castle for the view across the channel to Lefkada and  Meganisi is breath taking with the mountains in the background.  The beach in the small bay west of the harbour is wonderful for swimming.  There are a couple of hotels with terraces right down to the water and the guests just lower themselves into the water.  A great place to spend an holiday.
