Saturday, September 2
On Saturday, we gathered early at Sami Harbor. Here we were picked up by the Ionian P Lines ferry, for an “aircooled only” crossing to the island of Ithaca.
After half an hour of sailing we arrived on the island after which we took beautiful mountain roads towards Kioni, where we had time to look around and have breakfast by the sea.
After this it was time to leave towards the monastery of Kathara. The monastery could be visited and from the old tower there was a magnificent view over the bay, with the town of Vathy on the other side.
The next destination was the town of Vathy, which we had a great view of earlier.
Here we were able to line up all the Volkswagens along the waterfront, after which we could go into the town for lunch and some ice cream, as it was very hot.
After a while we left for a short drive to Tsiribis Restaurant and the adjacent Loutsa Beach to eat and swim.
Unfortunately, after that it was time to head back towards the ferry and leave Ithaca behind us. One thing is for sure, we will return here again!
In the evening, the annual raffle was held with great prizes provided by the sponsors.
