Slipped lines at about 10:30 this morning for an 'extensive' 15NM run here. Rather a nice run on the donk too! This is a lovely protected bay at the W-end of Kekova. The water is very clean and the afternoon light winds have now disappeared completely. It's been so pleasant, when I checked the seawater temperature at 27ºC we've enjoyed a swim too. Good opportunity to take a look at the hull & prop and pleased to say all is clean & well. Tonight we have a slight haze, bordering on being cloudy to West, strange because our weather forecasts indicate settled conditions for best part of another week. It's been good having 30ºC mid-afternoon temperatures for several days.
One good thing about dropping hook early afternoon is that it feels more like being here all day! Tomorrow we're heading further E for the next 40'odd NM so that we'll have just 15 or so NM to do towards Kemer on Monday. Most enjoyable!!!
Just as our we were about to finish swimming local fishermen started putting nets in water astern of us. With few markers and no lights on their floating nets we're glad to know where they have put them. Anyone else coming in now would be in for a sort of surprise. We're not planning to move so no problem to us although we'll need to be alert when picking hook up and getting underway in morning.
Love to J,P,F&S & R,M,S&T xxxx
