Come on board and take part in our adventures while exploring the world at the slow pace of a sailing boat. We left in June 2009, heading south to escape the northern winter... to start with. Currently in Algarve/Portugal taking it one day at a time.

Enjoying the Archipelago

21 September 2008 | Tjr N 56 10,3 E 15,02,5
...despite the cold and the gray skies. I could be repeating myself here, but it's sooo weird with a mighty high pressure system and yet we have hardly seen the sun in 3 weeks time.

We will not let our mood drop to much though, the positive side is we are having the whole little island world of Bleking all for ourselves.

When we sailed westward for 3-4 hours today we met 3-4 weekend sailors but at anchor we don't see a living soul.

Basically we are moving from one to the next of my fvourite spots here, just to relax and enjoy and obviously to show them to Isabelle.

Tjr is an island full of life, boats and people during vacation season and those summer weekends when the weather is sunny and warm. Now , there was only one other boat there while we had a 4 km walk around the island during the afternoon.

Around 4 PM we moved half a mile to a protected cove just south of Tjr to spend the night.

Warm and nice in the cabin, with our diesel heater running...

There are quite a lot of deers here, and usually one can hear the bucks 'screaming' when they try to impress each other during mating season.

This time we couldn't here them, I don't know it it is still too early in the fall...
