Paxos to Kefalonia

Paxos to Kefalonia

As is the norm the wind died over-night and the anchorage was a dad calm in the morning. The crowing of cockerals was a pleasant way to be awoken prior to sunrise. Going ashore early in the day we walked up the hill for some photos of Chance Discovery and the Bay. Having initially decided to go to Lefkas and transit the canal to find an anchorage South of there we picked up some wind offshore to the West and changed the plan and sailed close reached for a few hours at 7.5 kn. Wind died and back motoring in very calm seas. Approaching the West coast of Lefkas we saw a couple of swordfish leaping and then various small pods of striped dolphins. 3 of these came to bow ride for a short while. After changing plans a few times we ended up anchoring in the bay in Assos (Kefalonia) after a last hour of sailing. At the anchorage we saw a fried egg jellyfish (Phacellophora camtschatica) - a favourite food of loggerhead turtles. Contrary to what people say the stings from these are quite mild. Planning to go to O. Myrto for a swim in the morning. This is where the film ofLouis de Bernières' novel - Captain Corelli's Mandolin - was shot.
