31st May, 2015.
We are hoping to cover several islands while Sue and Frank are with us so we said good bye to our friends and left Kea for Kithnos.
We had a great sail to Fikiadha and at times and we were hitting 8 ½ knots during the 20.94 miles. We found a good place to anchor looking out to the sand bar with boats both sides. Luckily, there is one taverna!
Kithnos or Kythnos as it is also known is famous for its local clay used in pottery and ceramics. It is also used for the red roof tiles that Greece is famous for. The island is known locally as Thermia because of the hot springs of Loutra. There are very few roads on the island but it is a walker’s paradise.
We took the dinghy ashore and climbed up to the taverna for the wonderful view over the bay. We had grilled pork chop, lamb chops, chicken and sausages and it was a great meal, service and a marvellous view thrown in.
