2004 Map

Fieldtesting our new polyethylene hard tender and visiting the tiny island Nisis Panagia and its scenic, fully walled-in Greek-Orthodox monastery.

Clambering up the 15th-century CE Venetian fortress of Agios Nikolaos and spotting a couple of colourful rock partridges (Alectoris graeca) in the undergrowth.

Feasting on barbequed octopus at the taverna “Apaghio”, tasting the allegedly famous and rare (but somewhat sickly) red wine of Antipaxos, a little island which lies S of Paxos, and later, on the beach, soothing our palates with a bottle of full-bodied Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon from our ship’s medicine chest.
