Whisper HR has cut the dock lines and has left Marmaris

Posted by mei-sm on April 4, 2013 Whisper HR position I'm trying a new method of blogging. Sometimes it is hard to get internet and I procrastinate about the point of writing. But I can use my HF and the ubiquitous pactor modem. The pactor is last century's technology but works like a freight train. The iridium with the Mailasail software is unreliable and at the best slow and sporadic. I had given up hope with the iridium when I came across Ed Kelly on Angel Louise. They had similar problems with a newer model Iridium and pointed me towards superior and reliable software and I will have a go with it when we are ready to cross the Atlantic. We will invest in a new iridium sim and be contactable on the ocean. Iridium is also last century's technology and supposedly a good deal faster than the HF. We shall see. We left Marmaris three days ago. We are floating around in a bay near Fethiye. It was good to leave and try out our sea legs. But it was sad to leave the friends we made during our stay there. We spent a day wondering around saying goodbye. It felt like leaving a particularly good party. But as ever it was see you around. We never know if we will meet again and the community is wide and far flung.
Whisper in Kapi Creek

Whisper in Kapi Creek

We headed for Kapi creek. I like Heikell's food recommendations; he doesn't make them often so when he does it's worth paying attention. The bread here is delicious. The owners of this unique spot have see the rise of yachts in this area over the last 20 years. They built some piers and put in laid lines. They can squash 40 boats here and you might think they charge like wounded bulls but I don't think that comes close. Kapi creek is lovely and sheltered from every direction. It is the place to stay when a blow is forecasted. We went for a walk and came across a few farm houses. There are innumerable olive trees, goats and cows. The goats were having kids and we saw a newly born struggle to stand up, the mama was jumpy and refused to let him suckle. Kevin suggested she was being wary of us and we left. We will get to Fethiye in a few days.
