Kythnos - Quick Stop for a Cure
After a exploratory crutch/walk around the village, we stopped for a thermal plunge in therapeutic waters - espoused to cure arthritis and "gynaecological problems".  We had neither but it was worth steeping for awhile for a pain in the ankle.  Did it work?...

Kea - A Day on the Road
The 6th century BC Lion of Kea lies looks across the valley to the capital.  It's granite body has been beaten to a lithe slenderness by centuries of weather but it is still smiling.  What the heck is it doing here? is the question. The island of Kea is the...

Paying Homage at Poseidon's Temple
An imposing view of the 5th century BC Temple of Poseidon from Milly's cockpit.  A sailor must pay homage. The perfect anchorage for sailors dependent on a gentle sea, Poseidon's Temple.  And the Greeks sure knew how to pick their temple's sites.  Poseidon'...

Cruising the Ionian Sea
It is tough not to compare the coasts we have been cruising.  Each has it's own beauty.  We often comment that a place reminds us of another.  Although our time spent is longer than most on holiday, there is always more to see and places we have missed - mo...

Injury Aboard
The morning after.  Milly offers several places to perch with foot elevated.  Not such a bad place to be. An ankle injury is a pain in the neck!  I now marvel at people walking so effortlessly and feel great empathy for those who can’t.   Over our four year...

Fair Weather Again
A walk across the causeway from the relative calm of our side of the bay to the bluster of the other. My childhood friends arrived a day before the forecast predicted the edge of Zorbas passing overhead.  I had warned them that they were heading into a pote...

"Zorbas" - The Medicane Part 2
Fenders, tires and passerelle to keep Milly off the wall, proved unsatisfactory once the swell and waves mounted. Typically in the Med, winds are next to nil in the morning and build from northwest to minimal speeds over the afternoon.  But we are in a spec...

Escape from a "Medicane"
Friday's forecast on Windy.com yesterday.  We are the first orangey-pink streak north of the ruby red/magenta line which is itself north of Crete.  The cyclonic wind plays around in the vicinity before shrinking in circumference and heading east into the Ae...

Closing Our Adriatic Circle
Resting mid-day after a single night passage.  One night is much more tiring than an eleven day passage. We planned on sailing from the island of Vis, Croatia across the Adriatic on an overnight sail to Viesta, Italy on the tip of the spur followed by hoppi...
