It was a calm day, so we motored over to Fournoi, north of Patmos.

We expected to be able to tie up at the village quay, but was waved off and pointed to another area near the quay where we were expected to anchor. Didn’t like it there. Too deep for the anchor to be properly effective, and not enough swing room in the event of overnight strong winds.

Went to another spot in the next bay and tried the anchor. Rocky bottom and the anchor didn’t want to stay set.

So we finished up for the night in a quiet fishing harbour in the next bay where we were made welcome by some of the local fishermen. A lovely night.
