|STORM OVER POROS ROLLING DOWN TO LATI AND ANNECAM|
19TH SEPT 2013
With such a busy schedule of swimming and doing nothing in Poros, it wasn't until day six that we managed to hire bicycles. Anne and I were riding down by the quay when I recognised the Beneteau yacht of the Aussie couple that I met back in Dubrovnik marina. Mark, Nicole and daughter Mckenzie were on board and much catching up on adventures ensued. While we were talking, another Aussie yacht went by looking for a space to squeeze in to. It was Steve, someone that Mark had previously met and helped. We waved him in alongside with a further reunion.
The camaraderie amongst yachties is fantastic. They all face the same issues and are quick to say hello or lend a hand no matter whether the yacht be large or small. It's a special community and being part of it has been such a unique pleasure and entree to adventure for us.
Anne and I were planning to make our way north to Piraeus and Athens. Steve the Aussie yachtie friend offered to take us to Aegina on his 50ft. Jeanneau where we could continue on the ferry. We happily accepted and had a great day's buddy sail with Mark and Nicole to Aegina.
We arrived at Aegina at peak hour, being day two of the four day Fistiki Festival. The Pistachio Festival. Aegina is famous for it's pistachios and if you've got it, flaunt it. They were full flaunt and it was a fun little place.
