We are currently anchored for a few days in the most sublime, secluded, deep V shaped cove on the uninhabited island of Nisos Kira Panayia in the Northern Sporades of Greece.

As I sit here typing this, the only sounds I hear are of thousands of cicadas rubbing their legs together in the song of a hot Greek summer, with the occasional bleat of goats who roam the hillsides around us.

We’re only around 4 nautical miles from the northern tip of Alonissos but it feels so remote and untouched by m...

This anchorage gets very busy during the day with tripper boats but empties out considerably in the evening. If you arrive and there are lots of craft anchored there already, it's best to anchor further out and wait until sunset. You should be able to manoeuvre right into this little bay which has the clearest water we have seen in a long time. It also has a beautiful, fine sand beach.

We collected a bag of plastic trash along the shoreline a few days ago which included 91 plastic drinking...

Last year, on May 12th 2018, as our plane took off from Cape Town, taking Catherine and me back to Athens to begin our summer season on Lady Roslyn, I decided to try an experiment on myself.

The season has come to an end for us, but not before we were able to get in one last Trash Tuesday for 2018 in Turkey.

We spent the last 2 nights anchored off the west side of Gocek Adasi, an island very near to Gocek town.  It's close enough so you can take your tender into Gocek, but far enough away and tucked around a corner so that you do not see the lights of the town.

We arrived at dusk after a 9 hour sail from north of Bozburun near Selimiye and it was only when we woke the next day to...

Our lives are dictated to by time. From the moment our alarm gives us our first fright of the day at some ungodly hour in the morning, to the moment we set it before we go to bed at night, we are living our day by the clock.

When our kids were at the school-going age, the morning was one big race with time…from reluctantly waking them up from their warm beds, to getting them dressed, trying to get them to digest whatever nutritious breakfast I had concocted, getting myself ready at the same...

Catherine and I love to drop anchor whenever possible and we avoid going in to marinas or against harbour walls unless absolutely necessary.

So far this season we have anchored 92 nights and have tied up only 12 nights against a jetty or harbour wall.

While we prefer to swing at anchor, tucking into small bays and coves necessitates using the anchor as well as two lines from the stern cleats to shore. Sometimes the cove is so small that you don't have room to swing and other times there will...

Sadly, by this time next week, we will be moored in a marina and preparing Lady Roslyn for winter.

We have loved our journey along the Turkish coastline and taking time to explore the wonderful Gulf of Gokova.

After meandering along the southern shores of the Gulf for over a week, we crossed to the north side and entered the large bay of Akbuk Limani. The previous week was all about anchoring in small coves enclosed by rolling hills, densely covered in pine forests which grow right to the wat...

Here in Turkey it feels as though the season is starting to draw to a close.

The weather continues to be beautiful - other than the scare last week of us being close to a Medicane (a Mediterranean Hurricane) which ended up veering into the Peloponnese in Greece. However, it feels much less crowded than during the height of summer and we are enjoying bay after bay all to ourselves.

Our Trash Tuesday post for today comes from Degirmen Buku deep in the Gulf of Gokova. Many people might know the...
