New Aquaintances Andrea and Richard from England

Our day was filled with organising things so that we could depart later in the day for our planned trip west to pick up our friends from Rhodes in a fortnight. Although Rhodes is not a great distance from Gocek, we wanted to spend some more time in some of the places we rushed through over a month ago. Apol, our Sailmaker and his employee fitted our new bimini cover and shade awnings at the stern of the boat. Our other major job done over the past weeks while in Gocek was to fix the black water system which was never put in correctly earlier this year by the Irishman. Young Engineers from ModaYacht, Sanli and Sevki worked tirelessly to get our system in order. Fortunately all is now working well now, which is a must for Sailing in Turkey. On our departure from the marina well after 6pm we made our routine visit to the pump out station in the top of the bay. There are very heavy fines given if a boat pumps out in the Fethiye Gulf which includes the Gocek area. After this well organised task was completed we headed south to find a mooring for the night. We travelled as far as Tomb Bay when the sun disappeared and decided to stop and take a berth at the Nomad Restaurant quay. While we entertained our Turkish guests earlier this month, we spent a night in this lovely bay however had one of our guests cook dinner for us on that occasion. It was a nice experience to try the restaurant that we had heard favourable comments about. We certainly did have a most enjoyable evening at Nomad and the food that we chose was very good. On our arrival in the bay we met a delightful couple from England who were spending a few weeks aboard their boat for a well earned holiday. After dinner they joined us for a drink aboard the Tangaroa which ended up being quite a late night for us all. It was interesting to hear that Andrea was born in Germany and that both she and Richard had very interesting lives and professions.
