Re-discovering Farting Goat Bay

The next day we headed for our first anchorage, Dirsek Bay i.e. not being tied up to a pontoon.

Dirsek was not too far up the coast and after a swim in the marina’s delightful salt water swimming pool we took a leisurely trot up the coast and of course the lures went out the back again but alas no fish this time.

 

 

Dirsek is a charming bay, very sheltered, crystal clear water and only accessible by boat.  In fact the only other inhabitants of the bay apart from other yotties are the goats which descend from the hills to forage along the coast. I don’t know if it’s the gradual increase in atmospheric pressure as they descend but they seem to fart their way down which has lead to this bay being dubbed ‘Farting Goat bay’ of course.


 

We took the dinghy across to the only eatery in the bay and had a bite and a beer.

 

 

The view from our luncheon spot – Esper is one of the far distance yachts; Candice swam back from here after lunch, the show off.

The boat in this shot is a floating ice cream float, very handy in emergency situations.
