“She must find a boat and sail in it. No guarantee of shore. Only a conviction that what she wanted could exist, if she dared to find it.” ― Jeanette Winterson
Departing from the marina in Alimos, we began our glorious journey to the Greek island of Aegina — as the sun slowly rose towards its peak. Sailing is slow. It’s peaceful sport. The island was approximately two hours away, and what better way to enjoy the salty air than to learn the ropes. That is, learn to sail. The crew was gracious enough to teach me how to skipper a sailboat. I was at the wheel for such a long time (an hour), but never did I noticed. It was noted that I seem to be naturally nautical. Of course. I am in love with the sea.
I couldn’t have come to a better country. My soul sang.
As a took a break, I took in the sights. The endless horizon. The fading mainland. And the hills of Aegina clearing.
Thank you Grazy Travel for having me on board! Part two of this journey up next…
