Greece has many islands only a few nautical miles from Turkey so island hopping from one country to the next was a short sail. Unfortunately we didn’t find much wind and were motoring more than usual which means we are filling up the gas tanks more often. With diesel prices at $10 USD/gallon our fuel spending has increased dramatically.
The history, culture, food and people are a delight to experience, but the Euro exchange rate against the US dollar hurts the pocket book. $1.60 EU to $1 US. So we are visiting this place on a shoe string and enjoying the natural beauty of the Mediterranean.
Trizonia Island – One of our favorite stops because it had a free marina. The marina was run by the government who had abandoned it. Its falling apart but good enough to tie up to and visit the village.
The terrace on this home had plumbs, a citrus tree, grapes along with all the follows and a shady spot to look over the marina.
