live blog: docked in katapola

We are anchored in Katapola, the main port of Amorgos, which is hidden in a dramatic bay on the most verdant part of the island. The dockside is lined with a dozen or so small, family run tavernas, whereupon late last evening after a relatively inactive afternoon in Chora I availed myself of a massive platter of spaghetti with day boat lobster accompanied by a pitcher of local red wine. So entranced was I by the mountain of pasta and shellfish –  barely coated in a light sauce of tomato and garlic – that in my haste to dive in I neglected to memorialize it with the camera. What remained at the end of this delicious exercise in excess, however, left little to the imagination: empty plates, empty shells, and one very full belly ready for sweet sleep.
