Robert seems to find a bike to get around on were ever we are.
Wild nights!!! No, not the party type wild nights but the very windy type wild nights. Friday and Saturday nights have been extremely windy, and even though we are settled into good moorings the boat moves around a lot and the a couple of boats had to work on their ropes during the night. Friday night was spent in a bay that had an old castle/fort up on the entrance to the bay. First signs of settlement are from the 10th century BC. What we climbed to and walked around the whole lot was from the 3rd /2nd century BC. Amazing sites but there are so many of them. We are nearly down to Marmaris on our way back south and I have only two more nights aboard. Still finding neat bays and places to stop for our usual pre lunch swim and then lunch of big chunks of bread with tomatoes salami cheese etc, and of course beer. Perhaps a small snooze after lunch and another swim, then sailing again to get to a bay for the night. Walking the bays, or in the guys case, walking the hills in the mornings. Today, Sunday, the wind at present is dropping

I read and Sam does things on his i pad. It is not always like this as we raise the main sail and pull out the head sail. constantly have to adjust these.

Right! We have sailed and reached our moorings, how about a beer. Extra special if you can find a place like this next to the boat.

What a life!
I've enjoyed reading about your sailing. I learned to sail at Lake Chiemsee in 1987, but haven't sailed since. I was hoping to relearn by join a flotilla in the Aegean, but plans fell through after I took the family boating in the U.S. Virgin Islands. A hurricane was about 300 miles away, so it got pretty choppy. My wife said NEVER again! We did enjoy a visit to New Zealand last fall, so you have a wonderful place to go back to.
