We left Crete for an overnight passage heading to Pylos on the Peloponnese coast.
Shaun took the bulk of the overnight. I took over at 3:15 AM. A small sparrow kept me company during my 3.5 hour watch. I was graced with another stunning sunrise and the peace that comes with it.

We arrived to Pylos and were able to tie up in a small marina. The best part was it was free. We were at the end of a concrete dock that allowed the girls to roam along the rock wall and look at the many fishes.

On our way into the town we saw some gypsies weaving baskets and asked if we could take some photos. We wanted to ask them if they would teach Paige their trade. We ran out of time.

As we left Pylos heading for Katakalon we were able to snap a few photos of some great rock formations.
