Easter in Porto Heli

Windy predicts a nice westerly wind. It could well take us across the Argolic Gulf to Porto Heli. But: hardly any wind, but dolphins at the boat.

We drop anchor in the large, well-protected bay of Porto Heli. Two years ago, we were here once before on our thirtieth wedding anniversary. At that time there were 35 knots of wind. The next morning we move to the marina. We need shore power and a warm shower. The marina is now fully functional, has moorings and a house with showers and toilets, as posh as we have never seen before in Greece. The mooring fees are correspondingly high: 50 euros per night for our boat. We enjoy the luxury and are pleased with the very friendly staff. Here we can also get a new gas bottle and renew our food stocks in the nearby supermarket.

And yes, now it's the Greek Orthodox Easter for the next two days! This is what we experience here in Porto Heli: The church bells ring for a whole series of services, Easter bonfires, lamb on the spit outside, music, fireworks and dancing in the evening.
