We arrived in Cyprus on September 13 after a fast 29 hour sail from Kas, Turkey. We have been at the St. Raphael Marina which is about 14 kilometers east of the big city of Limassol. We rented a car for a few days and did some limited touring. There is a beach next to the marina where Laura swims and we watch the sunset. The Sailors Rest restaurant next to the marina turned out to be wonderful and we became friends with the staff.
This evening (September 23) we will leave for Ashkelon, Israel. We expect to arrive in Ashkelon early on Friday, September 25.
