Welcome back Chris and Mary, braving Hapatoni for their second year afloat in Greece. The Ryan Air flight from Stanstead landed on-time and after a 45-minute taxi ride, they joined us in Sami at 21:30 for a beer on the back of the boat. We planned to show them three beautiful villages that they had not seen last year, in addition to our absolute favourite, Sivota … four different islands. The map shows our passage at the end of the week.
Kioni – 6th July
In our favourite bar on the first floor of El Plo, overlooking the bay. It’s always entertaining watching the charter boats messing up their mooring.
A pretty little pebble beach, a few kilometres outside Kioni and at the end of Hudson’s dog walk. The graveyard provides your dearly departed with a wonderful view of the ocean.
Kastos – 7th to 9th July
Chris and Mary cooling off in One-House Bay en route to Kastos.
Debs also taking a dip in One-House Bay. Bet you can’t guess how it got its name.
Hudson thinks its all too much activity for this time of dayThe windmill bar in Kastos
Iris Hotel in Nidri – 9th to 11th July
The only place to be when it is 38 degrees
Ready for a night out in party central, Nidri
Gyros for four in Nidri, no expense spared. Total bill, less than 20 euros for all of us (Including wine and beer).
The boys after a few beers.
Sivota – 11th July
Mark serenading the neighbourhood. Funny how everyone seems to have deserted the pontoon !!
Sami – 12th July
After a lovely week with great weather, visiting all our favourite places, we say goodbye to Chris and Mary.
