Turquoise Seas and 🐢 Spotting! Guest Blog

So our trip to Greece and aboard Nimmie started well with the old crows greeting us as we stepped off the ferry in Paroikia.

As it seemed a tad breezy, it was decided that we should stay on Paros for a couple of days. A relax in the hammocks sipping a G n T followed by a beautiful sunset meal. A stroll along the seafront and a frogmarch to the ice cream parlour past the shops was the end to a perfect day!

Sunset in Paroikia

The next day was a lazy beach visit and a wander around the town at a more sedate rate which enabled some shopping to be done!! As it was still blowing a hoolie we did a road trip across to Naoussa via the medieval capital Lefkes. Naoussa is such a pretty little resort! The fish restaurant Glafkos served up a lovely afternoon meal. At this point Nimmie felt we had neglected her for far too long so off we went to Antiparos. Ben found the journey a little unsettling on her stomach🤢! The bay of St George was our destination. Completely gorgeous. Nimmie did us proud in getting there with Liz C taking the helm on the way.

We came across Windhover again (who were in Paroikia) with Bernie and Sean on board. Our time there enabled us to see more of Bernie than we had expectedl!! Caves were visited 180 years after King Otto and Queen Amalia but on the way a turtle (named Timmy) popped up his head to say hello right by us in the anchorage. So absolutely stunning to see him! A first for us! Baby Nimmie also wanted an outing so we went in search of a sea arch. Just at the entrance to the bay we went through the arch and beached Baby Nimmie for a swim.

Back on Nimmie, watching the coast line, we saw a herd of goats being corralled by a donkey up the hill to their feeding station! Our trip nearing its end enabled us to see the most stunning turquoise sea we had seen with Ben helming us all the way.

Up to this point we had given our hosts 4.7/5 on Trip Advisor. However, back in port at anchor the Moët was served! Defo a 5/5!!! Thanks Jo and Liz for inviting us. It has been so lovely being back on Nimmie with you. We don’t want to go!! Ben and Liz xx
