Saturday slowly got better. 💦😄☀️☀️

So instead of saying “Kalimera” to the lovely smiling lady at breakfast I have reduced it simply to “Mera” meaning morning and left the “Kali” meaning good, out of it. She laughed but promised the day would improve. They told us that yesterday so we took it with a pinch of salt, two poached eggs and two tomatoes topped with Feta. The rain was so hard at around 7 this morning I didn’t need the alarm because it woke me up.

This floor is still wet!

It stopped raining, so we drove down to the church, that you can see as you pass by on the ferry to Meganisi. And guess what? Yep we saw the ferry.

Off to Meganisi.

The bell could be seen but the the church was closed.

As we climbed back up to the car it began to rain. But again luckily we got back before the main downpour. We headed to a bakery, bought a couple of ham baguettes and drove to Sivota to sit and watch the world go by. Such was the force and quantity of the rain, one boat in our local harbour had sunk and when we got to Sivota an awful lot of bailing out was going on. I could imagine the conversation…………….”You did put the boat cover on last night didn’t you?” “Well, er, um, er.” Stern look…………… The ducks looked incredibly happy and gathered round Mary to tell her what a wonderful night they all had had.

"What a fantastic night, Mary!"
“What a fantastic night, Mary!”
“Boy, you should have been here, what rain!”
“Anyone want to borrow my bucket?”

The rain stopped once more. We sat and had a drink then headed back to the hotel. At last the sun on the water again.

Tomorrow must be good!
Tomorrow must be good!
Ah, the suns out, relax everybody!
Ah, the suns out, relax everybody!
One very full ashtray. No wonder the boats sank.

Baguettes, did somebody say baguettes?
                                                                     Baguettes, did somebody say baguettes? 

So all looking promising for swimming and sunning tomorrow, the forecast is good.

Thanks for reading, take care M & M.

Malcolm and Mary

Malcolm worked for LWT. Mary worked for TRL. They live near Camberley in Surrey and did achieve their life long ambition to visit New Zealand. They have two daughters Laura and Hannah and two grandchildren Zach & Safi. Having done the big trip they then went to Canada, which was amazing. Scroll down it’s all here. They have visited Venice that they both so fell in love with in 2009 again. And recently returned to Lefkada for one week in glorious sunshine. Where next? Well, Canada is calling again in 2019; this time including Alaska. So stay tuned if you enjoy the ups and downs of travelling.

      1. They say today, Sunday will be fine. Many people off home after just a one week stay. So kinda feel sorry for them trudging back to the airport in radiant sunshine. But that’s the gamble coming so late in the season.

    1. Thanks Brian I think, hope, it is about to. The big test will be when we open the curtains in the morning. Still, we are having a good time, great food, lovely hotel. Mary already wants to come back to this very spot.
