Sunday 1st July, 2018.

Lovely bright sunny day in Neo Marmaras so we decided after breakfast to sail over to the first finger to a bay on the plot charter which shows anchorages.  It was a lovely gentle 8 mile sail all the way.  We saw no dolphins on our way even though the water was super calm. 

A very busy bay with lots of sunbeds, umbrellas of every colour, boom boom music all competing with each other and not to forget the water skiers and the donut riders whizzing between the boats.  We had lunch surrounded by all this commotion and by 4 o’clock had decided enough was enough and we pulled up the anchor and sailed over to Koufos. 

In total we covered just over 20 miles all sailing.  The water temperature when we got back was 26.5 degrees so just right for a swim. The next big decision was where were we going to eat tonight as there are at least 8 restaurants all trying for your custom.

We had hoped to be able to hire a car for Frank and Sue’s journey to the airport on the Tuesday but no good as we needed to return to Neo Marmaras where there are several companies.  Tomorrow’s job.
