Still, so busy!! Fenders were absolutely necessary at anchor.....just in case!!
We managed 3 nights, would have loved to stay longer, but always some drama with the boats anchoring on top of each other, winds changing or becoming stronger, as last night when we changed places ....bref, this am we headed south >>> Preveza, where we are tonight anchored inside the strange Amvrakikos Gulf, in a deserted bay, all alone....absolutely silent....what a contrast....but the water is green! Still, we cannot have everything!
Bruno and I often remember, that once upon a time, during the month of April, we were the only yacht at anchor in Lakka...we remained a whole week taking full advantage of the early season. Many pleasant walks around the area, plus easy to visit the 'main' town Gaios on the local bus.
Paxos, is famous for the exceptional quality of it's olive oil....apparently sold by Harrods in London. Despite the increase in tourism over the past decades, income from olives and olive oil remains important for many households on the island.
The small Antipaxos, just a little further south, has only about 150 permanent residents mainly occupied with viticulture, producing a high quality wine.
Both these low green islands have a unique natural beauty, surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters....of course attracting many tourists!
Three huge boatyards in Preveza......a sea of masts, must be at least 1000 boats on the hard! This photo just shows a small section!
