Today is going to be the longest travel day of this trip. We have to go 43 miles, from Anti-Paxos to Sivota, Lefkas. Milena travels around 6 - 8 miles pere hour -- so 7 hours, roughly.

. What made this crossing even more difficult was the wind and the wave action. At certain points of this crossing we were at Beaufort 7.

. I was worried about Priscilla -- but she handled it very well. Both she and Griffin was not feeling at all well, during this 7 hour period -- but both of them made it through like champions. I am so proud of them -- and the entire Campbell family for being the fun loving adventurous, people who are always up for anything.

.

.

A of 7 + hours later, we entered the respite of Sivota... and very popular place, for not only the young, but the old as well.

. Next thing to do was re-launch the dinghy... which when it is windy can be a challenge .

.

Since we were "on the route" so to speak, lunch became more like "L-INNER", according to Griffin. Our linner

Was at 5:30...... After that, and a slight snooze by the crew, Jacques took us into town in the dinghy. Such a cute little town this is.

.

.After shopping/brouzing it was definitely time for our daily dose if ice cream and crepes.

All with full tummys, back to Milena we went. After a quickly game of Roll Out -- and Grammy winning.... we said goodnight.
