Catching up on boat jobs in Lefkas

12 July 2016
Saturday 9th July
We decided that we had put boat jobs off for long enough, so Lefkas, the main town of Lefkada had be our next destination.

As buying another solar panel was high on the agenda we started searching, but to our dismay they are very expensive here.We have set a budget for another panel and to buy here is over twice the price.Our fridge is power hungry as despite the souring temperatures and glorious sunshine our fridge draws energy quicker than the sun can produce it! So, until we can find a cheaper solar panel, we will have to cut down on our energy consumption, i.e.insulate the fridge.

We managed to find a builders merchant a cycle ride away so have sorted fridge with inch thick super dooper polystyrene ✔
Ricky has also fixed anchor points on dingy so that we can hoist it out of water when it is not being used ✔
I have changed ropes on fenders and added bungees and clips so that they can clip on side of deck when sailing instead of clogging up back of boat ✔
We have bought glue for Ricky to mend dingy with as we have a tiny annoying hole in the inflatable floor ✔
Ricky resealed windows so they are now watertight, even in down pours ✔

There're some nice spots in Lefkas. We had a wonderful meal with Roger and Heather, in a back street Taverna that was established by the grandmother of the current chef in 1960.However, this really is a party town and as we are moored next to the bridge, opposite a popular night spot, we haven't had much sleep, so we're heading off tomorrow.That said, the good thing about being kept awake by loud music and bad singing all night, is that when you finally give in and get up (at 6.30am, when the party goers finally go home) you get to photograph the beautiful sunrise.

Signing off now,as exhausted from all those boat jobs ha ha.
Love Donna and Ricky xx

Sad times as evidence is piling up on our shores confirming that we are not looking after our planet.
