Perdika is a popular coastal village on the SW point of Piraeus. Great atmospheres amongst the tavernas and marina side Greek orthodox church.
"August 15th, The Day of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. This feast celebrates Mary's ascent to Heaven."
So the bells were ringing, the crowds were singing, it's just the beginning, you shook me all night long (New verse for ACDC)!!
Disconcerting anchorage over night with onshore force 4/5, boat in shallow water and 2 cats that anchored stern to shore close to us, one getting dangerously close. Tightening up on the anchor after releasing stern rope to get into deeper water. Winds dropped off over night, no issues other than a disturbed sleep.
En route to Zea Marina near Piraeus, motor sail with 8knt beam reach, SOG 8.6knts.
Hard yards for local fisherman!
Perdika promenade. Westralia at anchor out of marina.
