Trizonia Monday May 7

Rion-Andriiion Bridge into the Gulf of Corinth. The breeze picked up out of
the west and soon we had 25 knots scudding down toward Trizonia.
Trizonia is a pretty island with a marina that was constructed about 12

There was plenty of room for us. We tied alongside the south side of the

reasonable dinner but a poor comparison to the previous night's dinner at
Nikki's in Vathi.
