A longer run today, heading East towards the “Whaleback” island of Kalamos.
Not a lot of wind though so its a case of trying to make the best of every little puff, and trying not to have to start the engine.
The channel between the mainland and Kalamos is one of the most scenic areas of the Ionian. The norhern slope of Kalamos is forested and opposite it is the picturesce village of Mitika, withits houses appearing to be right down at the sea.
The harbour at Mitika has a reputation for lots of mooring anchor chains that can make mooring difficult so I have never plucked upp the courage to stop there.
Opposite it there is a little bay with a small stone chapel on Kalamos. This can make a nice “lunch time” anchorage.
