The last couple of days in Katacolon started to drag and so we took the first opportunity of not un-favourable winds to push on to Cephalonia.
Thursday was the day. Light winds all morning with relatively light north-westerly winds off Cephalonia as we were to arrive in the afternoon. The earlier we set off the better and so we slipped from the town quay in Katacolon after lunch on Wednesday and went to anchor outside the harbour planning an early night and a pre dawn departure on Thursday. It also meant we wouldn’t have to avoid cruise liners arriving as we set off! The passage north was almost 60 miles, or just under 12 hours, and was calm almost the whole way there; we were moored on the Argostoli town quay by 4pm.
We have a week in hand now and plan to stay on the town quay throughout. We have spent time in Argostoli before, and our friend Keith did such a good job of showing us around Cephalonia we felt there wasn’t a lot of need to explore further. So we will just soak up life in Argostoli, celebrate our wedding anniversary and prepare for all our visitors.
Mauro and Adri are to join us,on the 7th then Valeria goes home with them on the 10th. Marisa comes out for a week on the 11th and then Valeria returns as Marisa leaves and brings Charlie and Ana with her!
Looking forward to busy month and as we’ll not be going far, perhaps some sailing!!
