Changing weather Vathi Ithica
After the meal the restaurants started to packup their outside tables. I asked why? Going to rain, yes rain hard. I finished up and returned to Malua just in time to catch the first drops of a wind and rain storm. The wind rose and turned the placid bay into a windswept mess. Luckely there were only a few vessels anchored in the bay so I could sleep with easy.
Not wanting to stay beam on to the wind I dropped the lines headed out hauling the anchor from the wheel position. A less than optimal situation. I got away without disturbing the boats alongside. I headed over to the secluded part of the bay and tied up alongside the whalf. Within an hour all the other boats had moved and sought shelter in this area.
