Wednesday 16th may 2012 Argostoli

This was our third night here in Argostoli and our wonderful mechanic Babis did some final touches to the boat so we could safely depart early in the morning. We still had some issues with regards to the original work done on the boat over the Euopean winter. The town became alive today with two large cruise ships in port for the day. On one of the ships there were about 500 Australian tourists aboard. We had a stream of Aussies stopping, chatting and taking photos when they saw our patriotic flags. We even had a past resident of Nutgrove Ave (actually lived next door to our recently departed guests) in Sandy bay pass by for a reminising chat!! A quick trip to the veggie market and the local supermarket was done to stock up on supplies. We even managed to get some Midori for our Japanese Slippers!! By chance we came across a delightful Taverna called Diana, which has been operating in the area for well over 30 years and still owned by Diana and her husband Steven who is the chef. Were were welcomed into the restaurant as if we were family and also the young waiter who came from Albania was very friendly and extremely helpful. The assortment of seafood and fish was cooked to perfection and had the best flavours sampled in Greece up to date. We wish our eateries in Australia were as reasonably priced as they are here in Greece at the moment!!
