Packing up...

28 May 2017 | Cleopatra, Aktio, Preveza, Greece
The end of the holiday and a busy time in Lefkas and the Cleopatra, too hot, too hard but now done and packed away. Nervous... not so sure about how well Ataahua will be looked after in Greece, there is no Kreso. Au revoir, off to Milan for a few days before home.

Birthday day

06 August 2016
We have a lovely evening strolling, drinks, dinner at a local tavern and the best desert at another. Today is Pete’s birthday and we start the day with breakfast out and then stroll the village, visit Gerry, get some provisions and then head to a beach spot to enjoy the day. Pete choses gorgeous bay not far away and its bubbles, swims, lunch. Head back into Vathi Meganisi marina for the night.

Kasmos

06 August 2016
Although a population of only 30 people during winter, it’s not neglected and the old buildings have been done up with care and style. There seems to be a small number of 30 somethings who have returned and are giving the island a boost and some style. Roge and I see the do-up house of our dreams (its not for sale), but it has created some thoughts…. Chatting to our waiter we learn the local mini market is owned by Gerry, originally of the island but left at 14yrs (by himself as there was no work or future for young people on the island) for NZ. He returns now for 6 months of the year and we are well embraced as Kiwis and invited into his home and meet his kiwi wife Naiomi. We are offered drinks and Cadburys roses choclates… From Wellington, Island Bay and now lives in Raumati for the other 6 months, they have 2 sons that live in NZ and we are given their numbers to look up on our return.

Kasmos

There are a few options, but another quick chat with the Swedes in “One House Bay” – who had originally recommended us this, suggests Kasmos. Originally we think we’ll anchor outside the one small village on this small island but we go in for a looksee. So delightful we stern anchor to the shore. On approach there is a windmill, not uncommon in the Ionian as there are numerous ruined windmills (originally used for grinding flour) along the coast, but this has been restored and is now a gorgeous bar and tavern, and is the first sight as you enter the town.
