Tuesday 3rd July 2012 Naousa, Paros Is to Mykonos Marina, Mykonos Is
We departed from Paros for the passage north to Mykonos Island, as the forecast was for light winds in the afternoon. Nearing the island on the south east coast we decided to detour to one of the small islands to stop and have some lunch and a swim. As we entered South Bay on Rinia Island we spotted our English friends for a third time. We found out that they were also travelling to Mykonos for a night before they continue on their journey. South Bay was a very quiet and beautiful place to relax and enjoy swimming in the wonderful clear and warm water. We spent most of the afternoon there before continuing on to the old Mykonos Port. Althought it was only a short trip part way up the west coast to our destination, it was certainly quite uncomfortable. The wind was strong and the sea was very choppy and confused. We had heard the saying before that there is a wind machine on the island of Mykonos. Perhaps they are right!!! Passing by the port heading for the new marina which was only a couple of kilometres north, we spotted no less than six cruise ships in town. Arriving in the so called new marina we discovered that it had never been finished properly and there was no water or electricity supplied to the dock. Fortunately we did not require either desperately!!! As there were so many cruise ships in town we decided to leave our visit to the Mykonos port until it was quieter there.
