Breakfast at the Bomb Buoy

Breakfast at the Bomb Buoy

A beautiful calm Mediterranean sea at 8am, as we left Episkopi and headed out to the bomb buoy (just visible on the horizon) for the charity breakfast.

The bomb buoy close up, it is used for target practice by aircraft, though not frequently and hopefully someone had checked there was none planned for this morning!

The first boats rafting up.

The chef who brought the kitchen table and a barbecue with him! There were eggs, bacon and sausages.. basically anything that could be stuck in a roll and passed along the boats. He’d removed the seats from his boat and had to sit on an ice box to helm it.

A quick dip in the sea… and a glass of Prosecco to go with our breakfast…

If only raising money for charity was always this much fun… There are more pictures on Flickr

What a novel idea! We have many lakes here in Oklahoma and this idea could work just as well on one of them. I’m thinking pontoon boats. Looks like you have a lot of fun!

That looks wonderful! I shall go and make myself even more envious by looking at your Flickr photos. I know I should not be envious but we are having very grey and dull weather here in Italy, usually sunny and warm by May.
