Nov. 9: Up early as the skies look clearer and my weather app says “ go for it.” I head out and make great mileage to a place called “Mytikas.” I meet a couple from Austria and they tell me about A fisherman’s home right on the water where we can get a meal. The table is literally in their backyard two meters from the ocean. The man cleans the fish and we eat a great meal. This is one of those experiences you cannot buy. It happens once in a lifetime. What a place. What a meal. What great company.
I taste three types of fish and homemade frenchfries. As I watch the sunset, I realize how fortunate I am to take this window of opportunity. I share the Piece Project with the family and get a hug and tears. They call me a Silent Hero. Peace and kindness exists everywhere.
Nov. 8: I found true love in Lefkada. Meet Sandra and Colin. I spend the morning chatting with these delightful people. Sandra has Parkinsons and instead of sitting in a wheel chair and letting it get worse, they decided to buy a boat and sail. For the last three years Colin has been enjoying some great days sailing around the Ionian Sea with Sandra. Whatever comes there way, this lovely couple have decided that true love means true commitment and regardless of the challenges, they will stay by each other’s side until the end. What an inspiration to meet people who choose unconditional love and look forward to a brighter day tomorrow. True love.
Later that day, I meet the Wood family. They are sailing around the world with their three children and are staying the winter at this port to do repairs and get the vessel ready. Look for them on FB: Mother Ship Adrift. I spent some time on their vessel. We talked, sang a few songs and then chatted more with the children.
Nov 7: I wake up in a sailboat. The wind was howling and full storm during the night. Yesterday I met Phillip who said I could stay with him on his Westerly Oceanlord 12.5 mtr “Artemis”. He is a nice guy who’s been through a lot in life, but he has a giving heart. I need a person with a giving heart, especially when it is storming crazy outside and expected 33mm rain.
