The above means ‘Good winter’ which we have said to everyone today. The hotel shuts its doors on Tuesday, so no way we could have sneaked an extra week of tranquility.
The lovely barman down by the Ionian Sea bought us two free Ouzos as a parting gesture of hospitality. His name is Theodore.
And lunch today was a club sandwich, well received with the Ouzo.
Moving on from my ‘cloudy bright’ thoughts, sitting by the Ionian Sea, I realise it is the first time, that I have been aware of, that I have been dazzled by the sun reflecting off someone’s kindle. Such is the march if technology, and of course you can never run out of books again………….you simply download another one in the blink of an eye. Somehow it has seemed like a long fortnight but when those wheels of the plane touch down at Heathrow tomorrow, I know it will seem like two days.
No ‘towel on lounger’ freaks today, so we got our favourite corner for our last day. Whoopee!
Mary did some early morning flower photography.
So that about wraps it up. Lazy morning tomorrow before heading off for the airport. The Greeks are still a nation of warm welcoming and friendly people. There was no problem with credit cards and no shortage of petrol. They need your money in order to survive. What we read in the papers and heard on the news before we got here, in no way reflected what we found on this beautiful island. Ignore Nidri and this rates as a most spectacular place. Take the opportunity to take the ferry to Meganisi while you are here you won’t regret it.
Monday will see us retrieve Dillon from the cattery. And, oh yes, a dental appointment on Tuesday. Malcolm had some root canal work before we came away and the tooth then needed a crown. The last visit before we came away failed to get the crown properly fitted, so Malcolm travelled with a temporary one in place. The dentist very kindly gave Malcolm a little kit to take on holiday, so that if it fell out he could be his own dentist and pop it back in!
Our last meal will be in the hotel and we are hoping to break it gently to Tassos that he is coming home with us. And the chef, and the guy from the bar Theodore and the lovely maid. We have decided we do need staff. Dream on Treeny, dream on!
Thank you so much for following, we both hope you enjoyed the trip. Take care Malcolm and Mary.
