Bruce negotiates the price of product from the floating shop. We get approached these people in every bay.
Yes, we are sailing. Every day the wind is such that we get 3 to 5 hours in of sailing under perfect conditions, which means we are whizzing along with the waves crashing over the bow and leaning over so that the boat is on a real lean. Can't get a photo of this as we are on the boat, but I can assure you that it is exciting. The weather continues to be fantastic but we have noticed that the temperature in the pre dawn is getting lower, so the change of the seasons is starting. Still extremely hot during the day and evenings. We haven't explored much but last night spent the evening in a village called Selimiye which is quite pretty. At the moment {6 o'clock in the morning} I am sitting on deck looking out over the bay which is absolutely calm and looks a million dollars. There are a few people out and about sweeping out the restaurants and the jetties, the odd runner going by and a lady doing her exercises on the jetty. Makes me feel old and lazy. I should go for a walk. Pip/Rod
