This morning we only had the bay to cross to our next destination of Naousa on Paros Island. We chose to take a berth in the marina by the old port to give us the opporunity to tidy up the boat and have close access to the town. On our arrival, fellow English sailors we met in Folegandros, Greg and Heather spotted us and came aboard. It was a nice surprise to meet again and catch up and exchange experiences. On arrival here we realised we had visited Naousa before by car, when we were here on holidays in Paros with James and Sarah in 2007. This is a very beautiful town and I had remembered taking many wonderful photos on that occasion. The old port had fortunately not changed and still had the charm and quaintness it had a few years ago. Naturally there were still the many tavernas and bars nearby to cater for the hordes of tourists that arrive each season. From memory we had dined in a wonderful taverna by the water behind the old port. We made our way through the narrow colourful laneways and discovered the beach and the taverna which now had new owners. We promptly made a booking, as the position was still as delightful as we had remembered. It was delightful to wander around the small lanes again that were cluttered with beautiful shops and small tavernas with their brightly painted chairs and chequered tablecloths. The shopping here was also great, especially a lovely clothing shop called “Angel”. Prior to dinner we took the opportunity to have a couple of colourful cocktails at Vavayia’s overlooking the small beach where we had our booking. Dining back at Glafkos was a superb choice once again, as the food was excellent, even better than on our last visit. All the dishes we shared were beautifully presented and were delicious. We also had the pleasure of meeting a charming young couple from Sicily, who were sitting at a nearby table. Sara and Lorenzo were here in Paros on their holidays and also intended going to Santorini, as many other young people often do.
