What an experience
Pauline and Robin
Marina Ag Nikolaos for many years.
Last adventure was crossing the Atlantic and then ending in Australia where they sold their 17m home made steel boat.
Time fornew projec
In England, a 300-years old house that they are now renovating
and in Crete they bought a small olive grove.
They love to hike and they are the two "pioneers" who have found all our nice walks around the island which we all are enjoing so much.
Their olive grove
consists of 240 olive trees
and anold caravan in the middle of
it's time for harvesting. And theyneed
a couple of hands to do the heavy work.
Is there any volunteers from the marina ?? Of course there are, p
eople lined up and it was a very pleasant experience.
We harvested 1312 kg, in four days, the result was 230 liters of
, Extra Virgin Oil.
We will never complain about the price of ol
l again.It is very hard
behind every liter.
About one liter per tree.
It was fun and interesting to be part of this
The last day ended up with BBQ, beers, wine, raki ... many laughters ... and even singalong. Jamas!
