  • Day443

    Pagania, mainland Greece

    July 2 in Greece

    OK so I spoke too soon the SD card we picked up was a C-Map 4D even though we had told the lady in the shop that our Furuno chart plotter would only take NT, NT+, and Max. We think that that’s what she told the engineer but either he didn’t believe her or thought there was no way anyone would have anything that old! We don’t know but we paid for it and brought it on board to try but as expected the chart plotter panicked and didn’t get off the opening page. I called and told the store that the card was no good and could they get the one we had asked for and given them the number of, the lady wouldn’t confirm over the phone she just wanted us to go in again the next morning. We did and then had to come back to boat to get existing chip and operators manual to confirm that what we had asked for was what we needed. Great! So anyway we now have to wait till Wednesday (the 4th) to get the card hopefully the right one this time. We were originally told Tuesday but hey this is Greek time so no surprise that’s it’s a day later. We also got to experience the Greek postal system, it would appear that only post offices can sell stamps so we managed to find a post office and we were the only ones who actually wanted to post anything others were paying bills, collecting money and other things that took ages with obviously only 2staff working and queue almost out the door. William your birthday present is on its way but I really have no idea when it will arrive.
    Well rather than stay on the anchorage which was getting crowded as apparently lots of boats have to move out of the marina for Fri Sat Sun as that’s the change over dates for the charter boat companies and the marina needs all the berths, we decided to go across to the mainland. We found this lovely little very protected bay a dog leg where the noisiest things were the cicadas and the cows, the only habitation was a farm though we had had to dodge a fair few fish farms to get into the bay. We had to navigate there, the old fashioned way with a paper chart, fortunately it was day light and clear so we were fine. Sorry no photos of anchorage was too busy relaxing but I have attached some scenery ones and one of me drinking the blue wine we bought back in Almerimar, yes blue!
    We are now back at Gouvia anchorage as like I said we were told Tuesday but now it’s Wednesday hopefully.

  • Day447

    End Bay S of Mourtos

    July 6 in Greece

    So after a very peaceful if very warm night yesterday we have continued south. (Oh I must take this opportunity to thank my mum for, I would say helping me but really she did most of the work, making our sunshade for Take Five without it I would definitely have melted by now.) We aren’t managing to travel very far as it gets so hot we need to anchor and get in the water, but today, not in accordance with the forecast I might add, there was a southerly breeze for the morning we made it down to Nisis Sivota and Mourtos where we then pottered around looking for an anchorage that was shallow enough and had enough space for us well we ended up in End Bay. There are some very flash apartments well I think that’s what they are might be houses and a hotel complex. We had hoped to go out to Paxos and Antipaxos but the weather this weekend off the coast is a bit much for us so we will stay on the mainland, our books do say that at the weekend both islands get very busy with trippers so hopefully it’s not too big a loss. First 3photos are at tonight’s anchorage the other three are boats we’ve seen in last few days. I tried to photograph a Mitchel that John saw today but it was too small.Read more

  • Day446

    We eventually managed to get the correct chip, on American Independence Day. So after two more nights anchored off Gouvia waiting for the chip and then another because it arrived late in the day we headed South. I would give you a blow by blow account but it just winds me up but while waiting I swam from our anchorage to the chapel in the bay photo 3 and also took pictures of some of the plastic fantastics in the Marina and there were a lot (photo 1 & 2) On Thursday morning we headed south past Corfu Town and then across the channel to our next anchorage which was beautiful so peaceful just cicadas and egrets to keep us company, well there were also some fish but they didn’t come out until after we had put the fishing rods away and then they were leaping joyously out the water. Photos 4 5&6. I am also now reading Eleni which is based in a mountain village close to Pagania and Igoumenitsa about one woman’s struggle through the Second World War and Greek civil war that formed part of WW2 and continued until 1949 its a very good read.Read more

  • Day1

    Igoumenitsa, Griechenland

    July 19, 2017 in Greece

    War das eine lange Nacht. Wir wollten so schön auf dem Deck übernachten, aber leider hatten wir so starken Wind, dass wir uns einen anderen Platz suchen mussten. Doch alle freien Flächen waren besetzt, eine Luftmatratze war defekt und alles war sehr laut. Wieder nicht geschlafen... doch dann haben wir erst einmal ganz lecker griechisch in der Stadt gegessen und die Stimmung wurde wieder besser.

  • Day3

    Fährpassage nach Griechenland.

    September 3, 2017 in Greece

    Die Fahrt dauert rund 24 Stunden wir werden also am Abend in Igoumenitsa anlegen. Das Wetter wird wie erwartet besser und Schönwetterwolken zieren die vorbeiziehende albanischen Küste.

    Wie erwarten legen wir mit rund 4 Stunden Verspätung in Igoumenitsa an. Rampe runter raus und weg, das ging aber Zackig.

    Zum Weiterfahren ist es nun zu spät, ich verabschiede mich von den Allgäuern und fahre zu nächsten Camp.Read more
