|Sunset at sea|
Traversay III typically moves at a speed between 5 and 6 knots - about 10 km/h. At this jogging pace, an 8 hour day would only move us along 80 km or so. This is a fine pace for sightseeing and is slow enough that problematic navigational concerns rarely surprise us but, in terms of the size of a typical country or ocean, it is S L O W.
When night navigation is easy, our solution is to travel around the clock and eat, sleep and fix things while moving along toward our destination.
|Gunnery observation bunker at the Ergan - WW2 fortress|
Bud has a well preserved German fortress from WW2 built into a hillside overlooking the town. The museum, naval guns and tunnels provided a historical diversion before a shared dinner with our friend. Eva had been serving as crew on a Spanish sailboat for the summer on a cruise of the Scottish islands and had lots of stories to tell about her experiences on that trip.
|A few of many many waterfalls|
To add even more color on a human scale, grazing goats and tiny farm houses cling mid-height on the cliffs with seemingly no route up or down save ancient cableways rigged down to the shore.
