The ferry hub of the Cyclades
20 September 2009 | Paros, Greece
As we left Sifnos, I had a bad feeling of a bad day. The day started off with about 20 knots and some small waves. But as the day wore (drug) on the waves built up and we had an O.K. (aka terrible) passage over here. (Okay, it wasn't that bad!) Eventually we had to throw in a tack and then things just got worse. Mama was almost (!) sick and everyone (except the driver) followed suit.
Eventually, when we realized that our target was off and we were headed for nowhere, we got on track again and were in port in a couple hours. We were very relieved!!
Ethniko Parou is the ferry port in the Cyclades. Most of the ferries are based around here mainly because Paros is pretty much in the middle of the Cyclades. That makes it easier to reach out and transport passengers to all of the islands around here. So far, we have seen ferries ranging from a high-speed passenger ferry to a low-speed car/passenger ferry. (3 of the most prominent types are the high-speed passenger, high-speed-low-capacity car passenger, and low-speed big passenger ferries.)
We plan to stay in Paros 'till Wednesday because of weather. There is a storm here that has yet to blow out.
Sorry that the picture is not the right one. SailBlogs doean't let me post a better pic. Sorry.
