Arrived here at Ayia Efimia yesterday from Fiskardho.
Took a while to get out of Fiskardho with all the
boats long-lined to the shore.
We had the cast of Eastenders on a gin palace next
door and Captain Birdseye on his yacht on the other side of the Eastenders gin
On Tuesday morning got woken at 7.30am to the sound
of their various eastend voices yelling and shouting as they were both trying
to get their boats out. They weren’t fighting, they just have no volume
control. The Eastenders had dropped their anchor over the chain of
Captain Birdseyes anchor. Captain Birdseye, who had been there for some days
seem to have put out an anchor right across the bay. Then as Eastender’s
anchor came out the water it brought with it the anchor of another yacht much
further down. After an hour of shouting they eventually all managed to separate
each other. The poor guy who had his anchor lifted completely must have got a
very rude awakening with his boat slowly making its way backwards onto the
Think we saw a Dolphin jump yesterday on our way into
Agia Efimina yesterday, Very few fish here.
Here it’s a larger bay with less boats. Have
anchored in the middle with views over to Ithaka.
Wind arrives strong and warm at 3pm on the dot. Today
we cycled 18km to see the Melissani
Caves which is an
underground lake near Sami. As it was a coastal road it was much easier than
the mountains we usually have to face to get anywhere. Still when we stopped at
a café for coffee and asked for directions the barman was shocked to see we
were on push bikes as he’d expected mopeds or quad bikes. However we were
equally shocked to be served coffee by a man in only speedos especially when he
was standing and we were sitting.
Quite a quiet sleepy town. Andy cooked dinner
tonight – so we had Moussaka to keep with the Greek theme.
Andy has made himself a Soap-On-A-Rope to prevent and
further dangerous accidents.
Leaving for Ithaka tomorrow am.
