Walk/Swim/Sail One Hundred and Nineteen – Ermioni to Leonidhion passing Spetse
The wind died down to such an extent that we were all able to swim in the sea for some time without fear of the boat sailing off. We then gave up on the wind, put on the motor and joy – as we neared the distinctive profile of the land near Leonidhion, we spotted dolphins.
As usual we swam again as soon as we had moored up in the harbour and the boys had fun pootling around with the dinghy and outboard. The swimming will have to make up for my inability to walk miles in this heat.
Dominated by huge mountains, Leonidhion is a tiny two taverna harbour with bitter rivalry between the owners. So rather than give all the custom of the flotilla fleet to one taverna, we had a punch party on the pebbly beach at sunset together and then made our choice of taverna.
