Chapter 3 of our Sailing Adventure - Day One

There's nothing quite like planning a voyage then finding mid route that you can't even sail to your alternative location as the wind just ain't playing ball. Add in the delights of a lumpy sea and you have the recipe for a ghastly first trip out. The waves appeared to be laughing at us as they splashed over the bow, drenching us with cold water, while the indecisive wind played 'Guess where I am coming from now?' Nightmare, even I felt queazy and was relieved to finally tie up in Porus. Yes I know we set off North for the island of Kastos, but the sea just carried us across to Keffalonia instead! Still - we had the whole Town quay to ourselves ... Lucky or down right crazy? I'll let you decide.

Exhausted, we were in bed and asleep by 9!

The following day was gorgeous, so we headed out to stretch our legs and see if there was anywhere open in the town. The local community, although few, were busy taking advantage of the sunshine to hang washing out, walk to the shops, which were mostly all open, or enjoy a coffee with friends. A couple were carrying out repairs to their restaurants, in readiness for the hoards of visitors that would soon decend on the little town.

We had lunch in the restaurant built into the rocks on the side of the harbour, the one we had spotted on our last visit. As with the quay, this time, there was plenty of room so we settled down to a cool glass of beer, burgers and Greek salad. It really was a beautiful day, so I was beginning to feel smug that sailing in March was gonna be the right call after all. Tomorrow we are heading the short trip North to Fiskardo, to take advantage if our 'early bird ' status, as Fiskardo is tiny and impossible to get in during the Summer season.

Hoping we may have that quay to ourselves too.

Take care as always,
Donna and Ricky xx
