Lakka to Gaios

Leaving Platarias turned out to be event free despite crossed anchors and we had a beautiful passage East to the Island of Paxos. At the North tip of Paxos is Lakka, a landlocked bay with unbelievably clear turquoise water. We had planned to just use this as a lunch stop but it is too amazing to leave so we decided to stay overnight.

Hollie and Marc went exploring on the paddleboard to the beach and also spent ages snorkelling around the rocks. As the sun started to lower we headed ashore in the dinghy and enjoyed mojito sundowners

As we got back to the boat after dinner some swell started to build up so we had a rather restless night.

This morning we left early to get to Gaios before the winds pick up this afternoon. Gaios is a larger town in Paxos, definitely on the touristy side but also with immense charm. It is also very very popular with yachties and space is at a premium. We tied up easily on the town quay but failed to read the notice about mooring prohibited and so raised anchor again and got lucky as someone departed and we were able to nip into their space with a slightly nasty cross wind. Tied up with no drama in a lovely location just off the town square.

We also found a butcher and a fishmonger so tonight is surf and turf 🙂

Seems to be a full time occupation watching the world go by here so I guess that is today’s itinerary taken care of.
