Ric departed for Denmark and Norway yesterday as scheduled a number of months prior. Milos being a very beautiful island with a lot of history and places of interest to visit was the ideal location for me to remain with the boat. As much as one loves the Scandinavian countries, it is once again hard to get the jeans and jackets out of the closet for the cooler temperatures there at this time of the year.  It is also nice, however to have some time on one’s own!! Five days alone seems a long time, however with catching up on washing and other chores on the boat, not to mention the photo editing and also the blog, time escaped very quickly!! Over this period the cheeky Harbourmaster, Miltos came past the Tangaroa everyday to see if I was ok or if I needed anything at all!! Fortunately I was fine and did not need his assistance. The weather improved dramatically while Ric was away and it would have been the ideal time to depart the port after being there for so long sheltering from the meltemi wind. Nevertheless the boat got cleaned, all chores carried out and a lot of walking, taking photos and the occasional swim were enjoyed in Ric’s absence. Over this period, a number of new arrivals came into the port and fortunately decided to moor near the Tangaroa on the floating quay. For a change it was great to have others nearby. At the stern of our boat, a lovely 70ft Yacht called the Defiance arrived and the crew aboard worked tirelessly to prepare her for the owners who were due to arrive in a few days with extra guests. The Skipper, Vincenzo, a quietly spoken and delightful Italian gentleman was very helpful with suggestions of islands for us to visit after our departure.
