Monday an even greater day of rest.

We ate last night in one of the two Tavernas in the village and we both had sea bass. It was glorious, fresh, meaty (you can say that about fish, can’t you?) and packed with flavour. The mum who does the cooking came and told me off, in a very jokey fashion, for not eating the flesh inside the head, which she said was the best bit. The son who does the waiting, cleared our favourite table by the very open window and said, “There, you can sit at the front!.”

Last night I tried to capture the eclipse of the moon but without a tripod, it was a bit of a lack lustre effort.

I guess you get the gist!

Yesterday was change over day, many of the folk we had got to know over the last few days went home, and at breakfast this morning it looked like no one new had arrived to take their places. The hotel shuts next week and the Taverna family are heading back to Athens, so no point hanging around as we might starve to death!

So once more, some photos from during the week coming up:

More rain by the church.

So that was the day. We drank, we swam, we ate, we swam, we drank. We are eating at the hotel tonight, so Mary can sample the Moussaka and tomorrow is another day in paradise. We made our minds up we will come back, there is no mistake about that. Thank you 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. It’s not bad!! The hotel has been open for six years. So we would have seen it from the beach, two years ago, which we visited and swam at. But it is very cleverly blended into the hillside, which is why we probably didn’t notice it.xxx

  1. Sounds just about perfect to me …………… drinking, swimming and eating! Yes, you can call fish meaty, I know just what you mean. I’m with you, don’t think I would have eaten the meat inside the head!!!! It sounds the perfect place to chill out.

    1. It has turned into a seriously restful holiday. We do, do museums etc. when called for but we just wanted to watch the world go by and empty our brains. In my case the work of moments! I wanted to caption that last picture,”The names Bond, James Bond.”
