Anchored in Palermo, south end of bay. Very tight so, with the help of the local restaurant staff, tied of stern and bow to shore. Mainly motored all the way with minor wind assist. Lots of development on the substantial beach fronts south the national park. Very nice anchorage adjoining local restaurant where we had dinner. All local produce from the olive trees, wine from own grapes, goat's cheese, fish, local cabbage and local tomatoes. Another yacht came in during the evening and almost fouled our stern to shore line. Fortunately avoided that at the last minute. We left restaurant in the dinghy and assisted the crew to tie off a stern line to the shore. A German group of four plus a Croatian lady on board.
