Tuesday 21st May, 2019.

After another delightful day in Vathi we crossed the bay

to Epidhavros.  We didn’t see any dolphins or any big

fish just a few little ones jumping out of the water. 

There was no breeze and we anchored in the bay. 

Absolutely delightful.

Our only problem is the big church overlooking the bay

does like to start ringing its bell early in the morning.

We don’t understand why it is never on the hour or the

half hour it is always minutes later. A mystery I need to

find out about.

The evening was very quiet and the next morning we

went ashore for some supplies.  Beautiful butchers and

not far away a very nice supermarket.  We were sad to

see everywhere needs a little bit of love and care. 

Several hotels are not going to open and you just get the

feeling life is pretty hard for the village people. The

harbour welcomes yachties but it could be made so

much better and that would bring in more boats.

In the afternoon Med Sail consisting of half a dozen

charter boats arrived and they were brave and swam. 

The water temperature has crept up to 20.8 but not quite

warm enough for either of us yet.

We had another wonderful quiet night on anchor.  The

weather forecast said rain during the night but we didn’t

have any and we woke to a beautiful blue cloudless sky.

Breakfast outside as usual and with the lovely scenery

what else do we need!!!!
