    Sivota and Vliho

    April 23, 2019 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    From Meganissi we headed west then south to Sivota, on south of Lefkada. It was interesting to see it open as when we had visited before in December everything was closed. We met Nick and Gemma and their visitors and had a good meal at Stavros’ Taverna. Next day we had planned to visit Big Vathi on Ithaca but as we were leaving Sivota Ocean Wolf arrived and advised that Vathi was still very windy and choppy, so we decided to stay in Sivota for lunch with Su and Pieta and a game of Uno, then headed up to Vliho to try out their quiz night. We had fun we didn’t win but the belly pork with jacket spud and coleslaw was delicious. We did make a Minion though he’s Stuart apparently. Today we did a mammoth walk (20km) from Vliho to Poros then the Southeast point of Lefkas before heading to Dessimi beach along the east coast and back to boat. Would have been a lovely walk if we had followed road out of Vliho but we went a bit cross country and ended up scrambling along a stream bed to avoid the main road so it took us an hour and a half to cover about 4km. Plain sailing after that but at one stage we really thought we would have retrace our steps that was after about 3 km of scrambling so that wouldn’t have been good, saw some beautiful flowers, lots of butterflies and grasshoppers as well as goats.Read more
