Stepping off the boat, the café with its comfortable chairs was literally steps away.  Cold drinks and wifi beckoned us.  Yiasou! Our hosts, Fanny and Necktarius greeted us with a warm welcome and a tray of pink colored shots of some tasty fruity concoction.

I looked at Turkey a short mile or two across the Straight of Samos from our yacht anchored in the bay of Pathagoris on the Greek Island of Samos. Green, lush, mountainous and mysterious, she called to me.

Our guests arrive. Rejoining us are some sailors who sailed in Greece this past September. I told them tales of the famed Christmas winds in the Grenadines and of the Mustique Blues Fest, we are looking forward to a fun week of great wind, music and sailing!
