An early start was planned this morning by Captain Ric, which proved to be slightly too early for the best morning shots of Symi harbour. The sun was still low in the sky and only a few of the pastel coloured houses were giving off their beautiful morning glow! The plan for today was to depart from Greece from Symi Island and make our way across the short distance to the Turkish coast and proceed to Bozburun to do our legalities. After waiting a little while for Ric to get phone access in the big bay nearby, we finally made our way across to Bozburun which only took under 2 hours of slow motoring while having breakfast. Dropping our anchor in the bay on arrival, we took the dinghy into the small Bozburun port where we did customs and also did some grocery shopping which included a hike through the back streets of the small town to the large weekly market. You will find anything at this market from fruit and vegetables to hardware products or even bed linen and towels. After stocking up on lovely fresh goodies from the market we departed from Bozburun and motored to the nearby bay of Sogut which we had visited before and really enjoyed. We went back to the same beautiful swimming spot beside a small island, where we snorkelled and swam in the aquamarine water. Our plan later in the day was to take Don and Susie to the Octopus Restaurant which was situated at the top of the Sogut bay. As we later neared the restaurant pier, we noticed there were many yachts tied up and that there were no spaces available. With this we decided to drop the anchor nearby and have the men go ashore to make a booking in the restaurant. We were fortunate that we were able to get a table for dinner, as the preorganised sailing function took up most of the restaurant. When we came ashore for dinner it was quite an experience tying up the dinghy to our table on the pier. As most of the restaurant was taken over by the Russian Sailing Regatta Event, other guests were seated on the concrete piers which turned out to be quite lovely positions for dinner. The evenings events for the Sailing Competition included prize giving and speeches all in the Russian language. The food and service were excellent even though it was an extremely busy evening. We were pleased our guests enjoyed the experience and Ric and I most certainly will return in the future.
