Motor out of Corfu harbour to end of island then set sail in W12 for Paxos.
Drop anchor and back into quay near the fishing station on the north
entrance channel. Beautiful clear water and a lovely village around the
bend. Check in with Coast Guard and pay small harbour fee.
Dinner at Pan & Theo's ok and inexpensive.
Get the bikes out Friday and do a bit of mountain climbing as we go first
north then south along the coast. Great vistas, clear water, stony beaches.
Overlook a very good anchorage at the south east corner of the island.
Despite leaving chain from mid channel, the anchor is not well set and we
must reset later in the afternoon.
Dinner Saturday night at a yellow restaurant on the south side of town with
a porch above the street. Excellent.
Gaios is a gem. Huge improvement over Corfu. Everything well cared for.
Beautiful estates. Lovely village.
