The beachy part of Toronis

Another day of dinghy repair for the most part. Bonnie and I walked about 2km to the next town, Toronis. We didn’t walk all the way to the main part of town but did walk the first part of the beach until we got to the cafe’s. We were just going to go in to see if we could get a coffee and a pastry when the door closed, siesta.

We walked back toward the road to Porto Koufos and got a picture of the end of the beach where there is a Byzantine fortification. This is where the campers are. We have noticed a lot of small campers and people with small caravans, what a neat way to tour Greece.

As we were walking back Bonnie noticed something growing in the ditch. She picked a leaf and tasted it, sage! There are lots of neat stuff to see and taste here.

After we got back we were able to work on the dinghy again, we have been pretty lucky in the sense that we have been able to get two sessions of work on the dinghy per day. Usually once in the morning and if we finish by noon, we can usually work with newly set (almost hard) epoxy by late afternoon or just before dinner. Rick is pretty happy with the results so far. Today we cut the limber hole and sealed it with fresh epoxy, tomorrow we should be able to drill the holes for the lifting bolts and paint the inside and outside, if the paint dries as quick as the epoxy we should be able to set the lifting bolts and lift the dinghy for the run to Limnos on Wednesday. All of the models are agreeing that the weather should be 0-5 knots for the 60 mile run.
