Today is our last day we will spent in Greece. One month saling/racing through Greece and a month was gone! We had a great time but it was too short! We have to move on! Our last anchorage was in the bay at the island of Othonoi.
This island is in the most North Western part of Greece. Not a lot to see or do but a good shelter for the night. A few other boats in the bay. A mini market with the essential shopping things, which is great by the way! And a few restaurants along the bay. Lots of hills and rocks. We went along the coast with the dinghy to see if we could find the cove of Ammos. According to the legend, Calypso hold Ulysses in captivity here. We never found the cave!
