Saturday……..there is no fat lady to sing 🎡🎢🎧 but……

Almost made the 100 yesterday, in fact 98.6 degrees in old money, so pretty close! Dinner in the Taverna was wonderful, if not a tad crowded but there were lots of Greeks; always a good sign. And grilled vegetables, what a treat! And the menu? Well I’m sure he just never believed his chum when he said it should be titbits. πŸ˜†πŸ˜‰

We were a bit taken aback by the intrusion of this quite large creature as the sun went down. But his chum near the hotel was no tiny person; Mary’s lens cap gives it a bit of scale.

These gadgets we brought with us were never, thankfully, needed! And basically our view for the week has been these two pedaloes. I can think of worse vistas.

So three swims today, lunch down at the jetty and generally just relaxed, chilled and snoozed…….. well Malcolm did!

And those flowers are still a beautiful sight, round the hotel.

The thing we have missed has been the moon……..all week. Absolutely no sign whatsoever. Stars, yes in abundance but the moon has been just a blank dark sky. So I googled it and all became clear. Two weeks ago the Greek government banned the moon for an experimental period of six months. Why? To aid and hopefully help the ailing Β Greek economy. How? Very simple; take away the moon and at once the old man in it can be redeployed into a suitable government clerical position. The cows no longer jump over it and can concentrate on better and fuller milk production, instead of wasting time. Songs such as β€˜Blue Moon’, β€˜Moon River’, β€˜By the light of the……’ etc.etc. have all been banned. No point singing about something that no longer exists and this time, instead of singing or playing the tunes, can be much better deployed in the Olive Groves or the tourist industry. The moon no longer effects the tides and as it was taken away at high tide, the shipping industry can prosper. Ferries, ocean liners, fishing vessels no longer have to wait for the high tide to set sail. They can put to sea effectively and efficiently whenever they desire, completely eliminating that enormous waiting period that was such a drain on better productivity.

So there you have it; the last major benefit being no more time being frittered away photographing the damn thing from ships or resorts or valuable days wasted by people painting it for a living. They have now all been reassigned to much more useful, economy boosting positions. I am so pleased to say that neitherΒ the temperature yesterday or the Ouzo affected my outlook at all.Β πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ‡¬πŸ‡·πŸ‡¬πŸ‡·πŸ‡¬πŸ‡·πŸ‡¬πŸ‡·πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

So, till the next time chums. I hope we have brought you a few laughs, a few nice photos and some interesting tales.

Take care, wherever you are in the world and be lucky! We certainly have been.

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.
