07:00    Very calm anchorage overnight made for a good rest. Genset on, make water, load of washing. Then depart at 10:50.

12:45    Anchored in bay adjacent Methonis. Motored all the way in dead calm conditions. We took the dinghy ashore. We explored the Methoni foreshore and walked out of town a short distance to the excellent family restaurant, Sapientza, for lunch. Picked up supplies and returned to the boat. Jude rested up, I did some chores and around 18:00 we had an Aperol Spritz, then went to shore for dinner at the Thalassa taverna in the square. There was a very good female musician playing nearby so went there for a nightcap. We returned  to the boat after midnight.
