Giving standing ovation to our British yottie friends Jill, Gary and Ed from SY "Second Nature" who accidentally put their anchor right onto our anchor chain at a depth of about 8 m and who later freed skilfully and successfully their trapped anchor from our heavy, half-inch anchor chain - business before pleasure, and many thanks for throwing such a sumptuous dinner party, but before, what a schlepp!

Preferring the local white wine, to be on the safe side instead of drinking the local water, during the feast of St. John at Port Kastos, a charming village that has only recently come back to life after the villagers had been evacuated in 1976 CE because of a water-borne serious typhoid outbreak.

Relishing a great dinner party at the taverna “Windmill” with unforgettable arekia live music, performed in four parts by a voluptuous Greek songstress with a great voice, and supported by a graceful syrtos-like handkerchief folk dance of two elderly Greek gentlemen.
