Last night went out in Lefkada town after parking up
in Lefkada Marina on Levkas. Great place to go out as less touristy. Some
massive basketball game was on which all the greeks we watching in the cafes.
Left at 8.30am this morning to make it to the lifting
of the bridge on the canal at 9am, then sailed on for 6 hrs to Gaios on Paxos
where we are staying tonight. In the middle of the crossing a british boat
passed about 200ft away with a person on the front bow doing a “kate
winslet on titanic” stand. After Andy’s closer inspection with his
binoculars turns out she’d forgotten her bikini. Apparently this is the
new style for sunbathing!
After we moored up with the anchor and the ropes to 2
big trees an 80 ft gin palace in baby blue with read seats arrived and somehow
made its way all the way into the tiny quay of Gaios without grounding. At
night it had lovely neon blue uplighting! I expect we’ll see more of
these as the season goes on.
Cycling tomorrow to burn off the billion calories per
meal eaten. Paxos is reknown for it Olive Oil and in fact Harrods have an
exclusive to sell it and don’t stock any other type of Olive Oil. However
this doesn’t seem to stop them using loads of it on every dish. I even
had a deep fried stuff tomato last night in Lefkada!
Have been busy watching DVDs of the last series of
Lost and just watch The Thick of It which is very funny. Need some ideas for
what series to buy and watch next.
Andy has failed to watch the episode of Lost I
watched alone the other night as he has fallen asleep on the couch again. He
must be still traumatised from when he was dive bombed for 10mins by 2 Swifts
(or could have been Swallows) in Sivota (Levkas) a couple of days ago
while sunbathing on the bow. Guess they’d like his shorts either.
