... s how close we are!! There are lots of shops ..very nice ones ...much higher end than the usual tourist ones...but I'm sure this is a popular destination - altho I only saw one tiny place to stay?? Maybe they all stay in Olympia ..the main destination for this port. It's a 30 min. ride ...and was very doable with ...
We arrived in the port of Katakolon not knowing what to expect. It was flat with hills surrounding the port as are most of the ports we are seeing. We had decided to hire a taxi with Richard and Wendy to go and have a look at ancient Olympia, which is the birthplace of the Olympic Games. The trip took about 40 minutes, some on a major highway and then onto back roads to avoid the traffic. The place is in ruins but you can still get a little bit of an idea of ...
... of it coming up beside the mountains .
After dinner we went over to the café on the premises and had an ice cream. I saw an older man sitting alone and asked if he wanted some company so we had a chat with him about his boat here and how he just got here after spending March - Aug. in Greek hospitals getting a stint put in and recovery time which seems a bit long. It was nice to chat up someone new anyway.
... hr Another text from Andy and he's on his way to the boat.
He gets settled in and we discuss the plan for Sunday, which will be to head to Triazoni island 47 miles west of us. The winds
are expected to be gusting at 30 on MOnday so we thought it best to leave right away. It will be a 6 -7 trip.
Up and ready to go by 7 is the plan.Again , i get to take the boat out of the harbor. !!
Hoping to be able to sail a bit.
... one place to re enter. Driving through olive tree fields on this dirt path, we came across a lady picking something......lemons i think.....not sure. Anna asked her for directions to get to the highway, and the lady asked smiling "Then what the heck are you doing here??? This is a mountain road?" I couldn't understand a word of the greek, but I could get a rough translation through the tones. This lady was glad to help us.....So much so ...
