Thursday. “The temperature is going to be how much tomorrow?”

Glorious day, yet again. So lucky with this weather. A lovely meal in the Taverna in the village last night. Still no sign of cats but off to Maganissi on the ferry at 12-15 today so fingers crossed for some sightings. The ferry goes from Nidri and this is what is wrong with this place; like Blackpool in the sun.

Sorry but just appalling; is it me? Anyway, fairwell Dalton’s Grill House and hello slightly more authentic Greece, and hello sailor!

And a clever shot by Mary, turning the ships bits into a frame and another one by me playing with my new found camera button. I will stop probably, honest!

And how much does an upside down Greek urn? Enough to pay the parking ticket, on this rather nice car? At least the policeman gave the owner a fighting chance by blowing his whistle two or three times before popping the ticket under the wiper blade.

We lunch in our favourite restaurant in Vathi and the young waiter complimented me on my Greek accent and then tells us the new ferry arriving place (a port technically) has been there for ten years; we are gob smacked. But suddenly there they are, at last!

And all of them looking at our very Greek meal, Greek salad, Beetroot salad, Beans and OK sorry French fries; mia potates! Mary chatted to a chap on the ferry and they want to retire out here and his wife wants to start a cat sanctuary; we should have told her not to bother in Poros, as there aren’t any!

Back on the ferry for dinner at the hotel; ah and why not, the food is exceptional. And we have decided that tomorrow night will be back in the village to eat and our last night, on the eve of our wedding anniversary will be back in the hotel. Sorted! I had the fish baked in paper which had potatoes, carrots (!) and courgettes (!).

Oh yes, and we have seen some exotic creatures on our journeys various.

Tomorrow the forecast is saying it will reach 100 degrees in old money by three o’clock! Really? Ouch. We will let you know what happens.

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. Thanks David. Although, technically its Sunday, we are going to celebrate on Saturday night. Because a lot of Sunday will be spent in the hell that is Preveza airport. Light cloud at the moment, so not sure how accurate that 100 degrees was. Stay tuned! M & M 🎧
