Lots of Swimming

Yesterday we anchored at Andreas Bay for the night and for me it was the best place we have stopped at – we arrived at roughly 4pm. This meant we had until dinner to do swimming and jumping off the boat.

Joe and I jumped off our mini boat and the main boat and swum over to a beach where there were lots of goats. We also had a ride in the mini boat around the bay until dinner which was at 8:15pm.

Anchored in the middle of nowhere

Last night was our first anchored in a secluded bay in the middle of nowhere. We found it in our Ionian Cruising book and when we arrived at about 4pm there were several other boats there. Some had spent the afternoon there and I guess about 6 stayed over night. That’s 6 not including the dozen or so goats!

It was very peaceful and relaxing as we played Scrabble with the boys, turning in at about 11pm. The sky was absolutely full of stars since it was totally dark. Continue reading Anchored in the middle of nowhere

Our first day out on the water

I woke up after a good nights sleep – I think I got ten hours. I kept going to sleep again but soon had to get up. Harry stayed in bed and I stayed on the boat and Tom mum and dad went to the bakery. I made a surprise laid table for breakfast. When they got back they were very surprised and Harry got up – I had cookie crisp cereal. After that we all had our sun cream and got ready to leave.

When we got out of the marina we had about an hour of sailing then anchored up and did half an hour of swimming and had lunch, and then headed for our destination. When we got there me Harry and mum went to the beach and there were loads of black spiky things. I ran back to the boat and got changed and then read for a while.

We soon went to the restaurant and I had a very filling pork kebab but I managed to finish it. After that we went back to the boat and we had a game of Texas Holdem and then we all went to bed.
