Well, I guess I've been forgetting to blog for the last ten days. Sorry about that! (And just after John said to keep writing!!) I'll do a recap of what happened in the last few days.
From what I can remember, we left Paroikia and sailed up to Naoussa to weather a storm that was forcasted to have 30-35 knots of wind. We didn't know that the marina was free (and jam packed full) so we decided to ride the storm out at anchor. It was a rough time, but there wasn't any fetch so it was mostly wind. But afterward, when I was pulling up the anchor, I noticed that our snubber line was like wire in its stiffness!
From anchor we promptly left and went into the marina to do our laundry, get food, and check the pst office for packages. We ended up staying in the marina for like a week! (We stayed the week because we arrived here on Thursday and had to stay the weekend to get all of our stuff done.)
So, we finally left the marina and went to an anchorage on the East side of Paros intending to move on to Naxos while we waited for the package(s) to arrive. We ended up going back to Naoussa the next day! My dad took the bus in to Paroikia and our package was there!
Finally. We thought
that we were free of Paros. But, the next night my dad decided that he wanted to rebuild the windlass (you've probably read about that on my dad's blog
) in a marina!! So, back to Naoussa!!!!
And Naoussa is where we are now. We will stay for (hopefully) 1 or 2 more days and then....on to Marmaris!!!!!
