Tuesday 8th May 2012 Preveza to Lefkas
We were thrilled to be finally leaving Preveza. With the fridge full of refreshments and food and the washing collected from our overcharging old Greek lady, we left the port for our next destination of Levkas Marina. We had made plans to have one of the Levkas marine tradesmen look at our watermaker there to see whether it could be locally fixed. At 10.30am the bridge to let boats through the Levkas canal was to open. The mechanisms on the bridge were not functioning so they had a big ferry to pull the bridge open. On arrival in the marina we thought we would explore the town, where we bought a few sweet supplies of local treats, wine and fresh bread. Unfortunaltely Susie had a slight mishap and sprained her foot while dodging a speedy driver coming down small alley into the main street. A very helpful young lady provided a big bag of ice and Susie’s foot was elevated immediately. This was followed by a short taxi trip back and Howard managing to find a outboard trolley at the marina to wheel her back to the boat with Ric’s assistance. Our tradesmen arrived and attempted to fix the watermaker, however it will be a job to be done at a later date in Athens. If only it had been serviced on time as requested, we would not have this added inconvenience. For dinner we ordered some local pizza which actually got delivered to the boat!!
