Kalimiera! Still here in Panayia waiting for the blowy weather to go away. We have a vague routine to our day here which is that Graham sometimes runs in the morning. We sometimes go for a walk and often swim and then shower on the beach and walk back to the boat for some chores or book reading or just watching the locals go by.
The main street runs along the beach and the children ride their bikes up and down then the teenagers ride their motor bikes and scooters up and down. The taverna owners work quite hard but don't have many customers yet and the fishermen here go out regularly but don't seem to catch much and then spend ages sorting out their very long fine mesh nets! How anyone makes a living here is hard to understand.
We have some photos of the boat tied very firmly to the wall - five lines and two anchors! The nice german couple with Don the dog are beside us and also have two anchors out - Naivasha is back in Port Rafina. Also pics of some local flora and a very very old olive tree.
Bye for now
