    Wer hätte gedacht das es solch große Schildkröten in Griechenland gibt. Unfassbar hätte sie noch stundenlang weiter beobachten können. 😍 Übrigens gibts hier keine Quallen, da sie von den Schildkröte gefressen werden😎

    Die Stadt war wirklich toll, viele kleine Läden und Cafes. Nach einem längeren Auswahlverfahren sind wir im besten Eiskaffee der Stadt gelandet - was ein Leckeres Crepe 😊

    Ein schöner Landgang bei milden Temperaturen.

    Having upped anchor and motored out from the bay it appeared the wind had almost died away to nothing, so the only option was to continue with engine power.

    The sea conditions were calm and with little breeze, other than that created by the movement if the boat, Tom and Rob decided it was a perfect opportunity to test fly the drone from a moving vessel.

    They decided a good take-off spot was towards the front of the yacht and set-up there, but this turned out not to be such a good idea. The drone didn't cope well with fact that it's take-off spot moved and this confused it completely. It wizzed off towards the rear of the boat, collided simultaneously with Rob and the mast, stopped it's rotors and sulked, which is pretty much what Rob and Tom did as they collected the drone and checked it was okay. It was.

    It turns out that it's really hard to fly a drone from a moving boat so after a bit of analysis it was decided it wasn't a good idea given the chances of it ending up in the sea were quite high. So the rest of the journey was simply chilling out until it was time to prepare Rincewind for her mooring. That went perfectly and with everything in place it was once again time for a G&T. It seems to be a ritual one simply has to do, you know.

    So, still no sunset and not even the slightest evidence of some bloke with an eye patch and parrot. Maybe tomorrow then, Jim lad!

    Agostoli on Cephalonia

    July 23 in Greece

    On our way from Pessades to Argostoli we visited Nisis Vardhianoi, off to the West of the bay entrance, for a swim and a look round, as seems to be the case in most of the inaccessable spots in Greece there was a chapel of sorts though unlike many of the others we have seen it was not well looked after. On the island there was also a wreck, John thinks it’s from around 2-3 years ago but boat was about 50 years old, photos attached both of wreck and flora etc we found on the island.Argostoli although apparently being the capital was a fairly quiet town, inhabitants all very friendly. The coastguard that we spoke to when we registered explain that he worked too many hours for too little money, so did the lady in the laundry and the shopkeeper, it seems to be a common problem. While there one morning we met a Brit who was spending his holiday helping a local charity monitor the loggerhead turtles 🐢. He explained that they tended to come into harbour early morning to see the fisherman when they brought their catches in. So that’s our goal for tomorrow morning.Read more

    Spot the lizard

    August 13 in Greece

    It's quite a good holiday for seeing animals, but not a great one for photographing them (apart from cats).

    Lizards hide. The swift chicks are tucked away in a dark corner and the adults are too fast. Butterflies are too unpredictable to catch on camera. The goats are an unseen clonkling over the crest of the hill - until this afternoon when they decided to break out and wander into town, chased down the road by their owner on a moped. Cicadas are audible but virtually invisible until one attempts a short blundering flight and hits you in the ear. And the nightjar only comes out after dusk.

    I do have some excellent pictures of a hummingbird hawkmoth, but on the other camera so they will have to wait til I'm home.

    Roman temple

    August 9 in Greece

    Some very well preserved mosaics just on the edge of Skala village. Free, and with informative signs. Although I'm surprised there's no mention of the stone in the Byzantine part that is very clearly reclaimed from an olive press.

  • Day3

    Wir waren im " Captains Jerry"
    Das Personal war, wie in den letzten Tagen überall, wahnsinnig nett.
    Das Essen war sehr lecker aber für meinen Geschmack war der Thunfisch und der Schwertfisch schon zu trocken.
    Nichts desto trotz würde ich wieder her kommen.
