So will start all over again....I am not finding it easy to use Weebly with my tablet...I guess I will get used to it....!
From the south, one sails into picturesque Poros town through a narrow winding shallow channel, separating this attractive Saronic island from the Peloponnese coast.....BUT, attention! for the fast ferries and all other crafts on the water...busy! busy!
The island is richly covered in pines, citrus groves and ancient entwined olive trees, small coves for swimming around every corner. The town is made up of cluttered white houses built on the rocky slopes around the clock tower...flowering jasmine, bougainvilleas, oleanders and hibiscus add to the charm.
Therefore popular with tourists, and day trippers from Athens, as only 1 hour away on the fast ferry.....
There is a splendid Monastery overlooking Monastery Bay, but very deep for anchoring unfortunately. Same as Navy Bay opposite the Greek Naval Cadet School....a stately building. Just opposite Poros on the mainland is the small village of Galatas, not at all interesting, but does have Lidl...very handy.
We spent a few days in Ormos Neorion, a lovely bay, few tavernas, no frills...pity that the water skiing starts very early in the am. Russian Bay, next door, is usually busy, as there is a tiny islet with a typical chapel ... clear water. Further down, we anchored in Ormos Vidhi....serene, utter quiet until the motor boats from Athens invaded and took over the bay! Time to move on .....which we did >>>> Aegina.
