Walk/Swim/Sail One Hundred and Twenty-Four –Poros to Limin Angistri

I was up at the crack of dawn to draw the view of Poros from the bow of the boat. We were free to sail wherever we wanted so we agreed to meet up with Jane and Michael at the island of Angistri. We stopped off for lunch and swimming at a bay on the island of Aegina.

Later, when we had moored up at the small, quiet harbour at Limin Angistri, we walked down the road for ice-creams, coffee and swimming at the sandy beach where I drew Xavier.
The evening meal with Jane and Michael was at a taverna with a lovely vine covered rooftop terrace overlooking the sea. Despite all the beautiful huge bushes of basil we had seen everywhere this was the only restaurant we went to that had Xavier’s favourite - pasta and pesto, which ended up all over his face and hands.

and another gem - I have been to Greece, on the way to Australia in '69. I remember the street of coffin makers, a cool and quiet monestry and losing my sister at the Parthenon for about half an hour - we thought she had been kidnapped.

Penny and Felicity it was such a lovely scene, I was fortunate to get up in time to capture it before I had Robin aawake and itching to sail.

Alison how scary the Parthenon incident must have been for your parents. The islands are incredibly safe - you can leave your wallet full of money on the beach, however about nine years ago a British toddler disappeared from Corfu, I think it was, never to be seen again - which is why I haven't made a point of saying here how safe it is almost all of the time.
