Thrills on a Thursday

Thursday (Bempti in Greek) is the 5th day of the week.  After several days of beautiful clear blue skies it was somewhat overcast today, however with only 25 days prior to a full on working summer season days like these can't be put ignored or put aside especially when at 11.00 it was shade temps of 21c........



OK lets take Yellow Peril my trusty old Fiat Panda from 2004 for a drive over to the resort.......

So leaving our village, Avliotes and towards Agios Sstefanos and through a few olive groves negotiating many potholes on B or are they C roads (no these are the main roads on the map) before we reached the headland of Gravia. This is a midway point between the 2 resorts of Agios Stefanos (many call San Stefanos) and Arillas........ Kostas, our dear friend at Gravia Taverna was busy making improvements and refreshing his taverna for Summer opening in May so we then dropped back down into Agios Stefanos to see some other friends Margarita and Chrysanthos at the Three W's cafe - I needed the loo by then and wanted to check my emails, so being an Internet Cafe we could cover both requirements.  Oh and I am now thirsty, dear hubby Aris what should we have to drink?  well a few wines were served, chilled, cold and white just as I like and we sat outside too as this bar is one of the few open pre main season........



It was lovely to see whilst sat there several Car Hire cars passing through, one actually stopped and a lovely Belgium family staying over in Ano Korakiana who fancied a venture over to our North West coast popped in and had a few beers too.........

So a few hours later and back in our little village house here in Avliotes we opened the door to be greeted by our loving cat Bella (See previous blogs) and her new kittens.  Almost 4 weeks ago she had her babies, today was the first days she 'allowed us to see them' now named Marley, the darker one and is a boy and the one that looks just like Bella herself  is Poppy. a girl. And yes we will be keeping both............

Well now it's almost 7.30pm and the sun is dropping with evening
temps only 19c so time to draw our curtains but I am in no way lighting the log fire this evening with such mild temps.  However we have cut logs ready for tomorrow as the past few days have been kind for April but if we can believe the weather forecast tomorrow, Friday will still be mild for the time of year but we should have cooler temps and expect rain and maybe a storm....

Night Night from the village.........
