Arki anchor recovery

The windlass of my Austrian neighbours started malfunctioning when they came in yesterday, but Helge, my Norvegian neighbour and me paddled out with a dinghy to assist them. The motor of the windlass did not work any more.

So today Manolis Trypas, a fisherman and support from the Hellenic Army recovered the anchor and chain manually.

Another example of international seamanship and Greek hospitality.

New handmade cushions

The only shop in Arki has really nice small carpets on display. While relaxing in the adjacent coffee shop I liked their cushions, which are made of the carpets.

Sotiria, the shop owner, started immediately to produce some for Lady Soul :)
