Extremely hot sticky weather and threatening skies announced thunderstorms recently, but fortunately not for us! (this time). Although plenty of thunder and lightning in the distance. Now we are back to clear, more pleasant conditions.
The only other yacht sharing 'our' beautiful bay is a smart modern dark blue Beneteau 50, flying an Australian flag ....S/Y 'Sea Dreams'. We feel very privileged to have met Rosemary and Rob Peterswald from Hobart ...a delightful talented couple, authors of gorgeous cruising, food and wine 'coffee table' books, all with outstanding photographs taken by the authors.
Naturally, as one does, we have spent many enjoyable long evenings sharing our endless sailing and life experiences! (food and wine included of course!)
I think that Rosemary and I have explored every track on the island, sometimes getting completely lost before finding finally fresh clear waters in which to cool off!
Try to find 'From the Sea' (sailing Tasmania) and 'Beyond the Shore' (sailing the East coast of Australia).
Also, 'Sea Dreams' in the Western Mediterranean, and 'Sea Dreams' in the Adriatic....you will not be disappointed!
'Sea Dreams' in Greece and Turkey will be published in the near future....a definite must!
John and Nicky, our lovely English friends from the island have been frequent visitors recently, as well as daughter Jo and friend Gemma, two young superb blonde beauties from London....
Time to move on >>>> the SPORADES, then down via the PELOPONNESE >>> southern Sicily where we will winter in the Marina at Ragusa.
However, the mighty Meltemi is blowing down thru the Aegean, Force 7/8 and some areas 9! .............!!
