Tiros

Tiros is only 10 miles north of Plaka so it was an easy motor sail up the coast for an hour or so. We had planned to go south but the weather for later in the week was showing very strong winds there so, maybe head south later, and we headed away from the coming Meltemi.

Tiros is a very pretty small harbour and we found a space stern to next to another cat, which promptly left. The harbour filled up during the afternoon, with Chris helping some of the arrivals and spending time 'suggesting' how the power cat next to us should moor, partly to be helpful and mostly to make sure he didnt hit us!

The harbour at Tiros is in the corner of a large bay that stretches away for around two miles to the north. The shore is lined with small hotels, apartments, bars and shops so we got our folding bikes out for only the second time this season and cycled around the bay stopping off to buy fruit and and ice-cream. We had a very good Pizza in a small shore-side taverna that night, some of it making its way back to Splice to accompany the skippers coffee the next day

We had a quiet time the following day, doing some boat maintenance and relaxing. Another flotilla of 10 boats arrived in the afternoon, packing the place until there wasn't a berth left. Luckily no one else arrived. We got ready and left by 10.00 the next morning to get out of the harbour before the flotilla started their leaving process.....getting ten inexperienced boats out of a small harbour can take a while!
