Set off in near calm conditions for a midday swim and BBQ stop in a bay of the island of Polyaigos. Mild seas in the afternoon (3-4 feet) which the Galileo ignored, as we wafted across the wine-dark waters to Pholegandros. Formerly an isolation/exile spot for political prisoners in the 90s, it has returned to its sleepy ways and the harbour is thankfully too small for the mega-cruise ships to enter.
Took a local bus up to the capital Chora (I think that just means Capitol because there seems to be one on every island) in time for sunset and a delicious Gyro, followed by a stroll through the village and a descent to the boat under a full moon.
