Lonely in Palionissos

Today I found myself without any neighbours. This gave me the opportunity to make a nice drone video.

Beautiful Sailing Day

Today the forecast was for no wind at all. So I was already surprised when leaving the harbour of Pythagorion on Samos as there was a nice breeze for sailing.

In the approach of the small island of Arki Lady Soul was sailing with around 7 knots.

A perfect single handed sailing day.

Now I will enjoy the tranquility of Arki after 2 noisy nights in Samos before returning to my favorite swimming bay in Palionissos.

Covid-19 free Lipsi

Today on our way from Palionissos to Lipsi the Hellenic Coast Guard redirected us to stay at least 2.5 nm off the small island of Strongily, because the Greek Air Forces were holding some shooting exercises.

Now we are enjoying the Covid free island of Lipsi before heading to Arki tomorrow.

Season 2021 started

After a strange winter I finally had the chance to start my first sailing trip this season.

Just in time Kalymnos lockdown has come to an end and I was allowed to start the journey with my favorite bay Palionissos.

I wish all of us a healthy summer 2021.

Season ended

The year 2020 we will probably remember in different ways. Covid-19 was and still is changing all our opportunities and lifes.

But at least it looks like the world got rid of the most ridiculous idiot running a world leading nation (others hopefully will follow).

As a lockdown for all of Greece was implemented yesterday there will be no more chance to go out.

Therefore the preparations and upgrades for 2021 will start soon. As I am staying for the winter, there is lots of time for this.

All sails are washed down on a wonderful sunny and worm November day.

As the Greeks say „Καλό Χειμώνας“.

Stay healthy and see you 2021.

Catch of the Day

Today it looked like there will be a thunderstorm soon. Dark skies and thunder from the far. So I decided to do some fishing out of the dinghi.

And I was lucky. It took me just 5 minutes until this nice sea bass got on the hook. Christos will prepare it nicely tonight even the 1kg will be a bit too much for the two of us.

My first Calamari catch

Today I used my stop at the beautiful island of Arki to go fishing with Nikolas, who has a great taverna at Arki and has a boat suitable for fishing.

We were not lucky catching any fish, but we caught some nice calamari.
