Ithica

Had nice breeze after leaving Zakynthos but then it died away and we were left motoring in eerily calm conditions.  Had three lines out the back but no bites.
 
Whoosh!  A sudden rush of water and we had a flood in the kitchen!  Fresh water hose came detached from tap and was filling the boat with water!  So that gave us something to do â emptying lockers and drying out.  No losses or damage.
 
Approach Ithica â all green and verdant â and look at a couple of possible places for the night.  Eventually pick quiet bay with just one house and dock, surrounded by pines.  Mark takes the plunge â first swim, with water temp at about 18C.
