Our last day of sailing in the Aegean Sea was Thursday 10th and it proved to be an interesting day. Our first call was the small island of Chios where the boat was moored right beside the road around the waterfront - in fact one lane of traffic was closed off so that the passengers could disembark and embark safely.
We went for a walk into the main part of town and sat down in a delightful park. At the back of ...
