June 22nd

Another long day at sea, moving all the way down from Corfu to the island of Lefkada, that is joined to the mainland of Greece by a causeway. The causeway spans a narrow channel that stretches for several miles between Lefkada and the mainland. We did not realize that the bridge has to move in order for us to get through, and it only opens every hour on the hour. By shear luck, we arrive at 5 minutes to the hour and watch the process as the gate opens up and we pass through the opening.

The Marina is a short way down this channel after the opening. It is a lovely Marina and we spend a very hot evening walking the town and eating out at one of the quay side restaurants.
