In Kalamata went tied up in the commercial port, which was unexpectedly quiet - not so much trade these days. We expecting Kalamata to have olive statues in the town square and shops dedicated to the olive. However this wasn't the case - apparently no one in Kalamata is aware of the olive connection. It is however an unexpectedly cosmopolitan town, with some lovely shops and some beautiful old buildings.
The walk into town with a bit further than we thought so we grabbed some food before returning to the boat. Maddy and Sam had some type bet that turned bad.. you really can't take some people anywhere!
After much hunting these were the only olives we found!
Getting back on board at the port required a leap of faith...
We're an ordinary family of 5 dreaming, planning and now beginning our adventure around the Mediterranean (and further afield), having an awesome time! Look out for our boat and come and say hi.
