The Odyssey: Passage to Pylos

Today was a shore day in Kusadasi. We took a guided tour of Ephesus in the morning and then bombed around town in the afternoon. Ephesus was amazing, like touring an entire city from the Greek and Roman eras. We have a new appreciation for the beauty and sophistication of Turkey.

Early tomorrow we're headed west to Pylos on the Peloponesse peninsula of Greece, about 300 miles away. Capt. John decided that we will need to skip Crete in order to stay on track to reach Corfu by next Wednesday, when we all have travel connections. So we will be sailing for about forty-eight straight hours without landfall. We'll try to send Spot updates, but they might show only here on the blog and not go out to the recipients list. Sorry that hasn't worked out better.
