Boat lorry dog   Leave a comment

My friend John wanted to bring his boat from Finike to Kas. He had already brought it to Kekova, about two thirds of the way, and asked me if I’d like to join him for the remainder of the trip. I didn’t have to think very hard about it, I like boats, so the answer was a definite Yes. We left Kekova at seven in the morning and threaded our way through the islands to the open sea. The motor rumbled steadily and the sea was calm, it was very pleasant. John made the first cup of tea while I steered and we chatted about all manner of things.

Here’s a picture of Kaptan John as we were passing the Greek island of Meis near the end of the journey.

As we turned round the end of Kas peninsula we saw a lorry that had overshot the parking area by the road and was nearly in the sea.

The driver must have had quite a fright.

The journey took exactly three hours, we had two more cups of tea  on the way. We tied up at the marina side of Kas at eleven.

John’s wife Maureen very kindly had some breakfast for us, so thank you very much Mo.

This is my neighbours dog who has been coming to play with my dogs. He’s a bag of bones so, being soft, I give him a little bit to eat every now and then.

A few days ago he arrived with a swollen eye that appeared to be infected. He couldn’t open it and it was obviously quite painful. He let me put some eye drops in it and it improved by the next day, the swelling had gone down and he could open it a bit. I’ve continued to treat him but he plays with my dogs and yelps if it gets knocked so it must still be painful.
