Firstly we went to Kalamos town on Kalamos Island to see George, who they fondly remember from our time here on flotilla in the dim and distant past. As usual when we get together we just pick up where we left off the last time we saw each other, which is nearly a year ago now, although we do regularly talk on Skype. And so being in a place like this with a myriad old shared memories together was bound to start the reminiscence juices flowing and stories of past times came flooding back.
We set off a couple of days later to have another sail around and got a call from Tony to say that there was windy weather approaching so instead of going to port Atheni as planned (an open bay and moored at anchor) we decided to go and pick up a fixed mooring at Spilia Bay, so we were safely tucked into the brothers Grimm for a couple of nights.
Although the wind had not passed at this time we wanted to move on a little and moved onto Atheni and moored at anchor but with a line ashore tied to a tree, the wind should not have been down this side of the bay but it was so we just bolstered everything up and sat it out. At least now the temperatures are back to a more seasonal normal of around 28-30. We have been having high thirties and even touching forty at times which has made it difficult to sleep at night but it's altogether fresher now.
We did have to reset our anchor yesterday evening as the constant tugging had moved us slowly over the day. This time we forced it in until the boat engine couldn't move us and settled down for the night.

We will be on the move again tomorrow, all being well but as yet we don't know where, that's the great thing about it you can just wake up and then decide.
Jean has even been swimming in sea water which she doesn't normally do as she has a thing about fish, Hmmmmm, I think we may make a seafarer of her yet.
