Angie, windy 27 degrees
We left Nisiros with the predicted NE wind direction so motored across to the end of Kos where we could set the sails for a straight run to Astypalia we had decided to Anchor in a bay just around the corner from the main as it was getting rather late and we thought that it may be a bit of a dog fight for a space on the town quay we had a lovely quiet night with bay all to ourselves. The next morning we motored around to the town of Skala and got a spot on the quay where we caught up with Janet and Aussie sailor we met on Nisiros. We had a fairly quiet day restocking the pantry and decided to wait until the cool of the evening before walking up the hill to the main part of the village and a fort perched on the highest point. All these hills and stairs are not good for our knees. Steve also wanted to wait till the evening rush hour was over as boats came in thick and fast jockeying for the few remaining spaces left on the pier. There was a bit of excitement when the last remaining spaces was taken up by a huge Catamaran leaving on boat with nowhere to go he decided that he would raft up to the other boats and was in cited to do so by a charter boat but the Captain of the English boat on the other side was not there to protest so the French German and English all got excited and told him he had to leave, there was even more excitement when he reversed out and turned of the enclose boats Anchor chain with the worry that he might snag it with his keel, but all was good and they left with the woman on the bow blowing kisses to everyone and tied up on the old ferry wharf outside the mole.everything settled down and we headed off after dinner for our walk took our photos and had coffee and dessert at this lovely cafe with a wonderful view out over the harbour. Lady was lovely as they weren't properly open for the summer but invited us in gave us samples of her baking. We had coffee and chocolates for €5, a bargain.
