Kerrie & Lee arrive

Monday 6th July 2009
 
Kerrie & Lee arrived safely this afternoon, and we were amazed at how little baggage they had!  It must be a first for Kerrie that her bag was underweight by 5 kilos, and that included some stuff we had asked her to bring for us (mango chutney, marmite...)!
 
It's lovely to have them on board and we are really looking forward to spending the week with them and doing a bit of gentle sailing too.
 
Kerrie was not convinced she would fit her stuff into the little bit of locker space we had available, but it's surprising how much you can fit into them, and soon her bag was empty.  Lee, on the other hand, decided his bag would be his wardrobe and didn't bother to unpack!
 
We went for a walk around the town and had dinner in the pizza restaurant just across the road from the boat.  For dessert we went back to the ice-cream shop Lee had spotted earlier, and wandered back to the boat along the quayside enjoying delicious ice-creams.
 
We chatted about how much sailing they wanted to do, where they wanted to go and what other things they wanted to do, and went to bed with a plan sorted.  We would be off in the morning to Loutraki on Skopelos - just 7 nautical miles away - a short hop to get the feel of the boat.
