It was a slow start to the day with a long sleep in and watching a bit of TV. We walked down the steps to the marina and went back to the pizzeria to grab some lunch and look at the huge boats that were coming and going. After lunch we slowly walked along the marina and around to the beach. Our plan was similar to yesterday – laze around and relax.
We decided not to go onto the rock beach like yesterday as we needed some shade and the water wasn't looking that nice. So a bit further around we found a spot on the edge of the path near where some kids we playing just off the rocks. We sat for a while reading and looking out over the water. Bec noticed some small crabs walking around on the rocks below us and after some more watching saw that there was about 6 of them crawling around.
Eventually we hobbled over the rocks and slowly made our way into the water. It was quite cold so it took a bit of courage to get in, and in the end we did and the water was very refreshing. After some mucking around in the water we dried off and sat at the waters edge for a while.
Later that afternoon we went back to the room to clean up and have a little rest. After a little while we went back to the main square and to the restaurant that the apartment owner recommended. We sat outside enjoying the warmth of the sun and a cool breeze. The meals were very tasty but also very expensive – seems to cost more in the square than on the marina.
After dinner we walked along the marina and some local school children put on a very short dance show in traditional dress. It was entertaining to see the little kids dancing around. They looked like they were having fun. Unfortunately we didn't take the camera out with us tonight so no photos. After the dance we continued our walk away from the apartment and along the marina. It was nice and cool and you could see the lights on top of the masts of the sail boats rocking gently back and forth.
In the next bay there is a larger beach than where we were at today and yesterday, but still all pebbles. We decided not to walk any further than that and headed back to our apartment.
