Blue sky, about 20 C. Not many impressions from last night because it was so dark while we were driving. A dry, rocky landscape. The road mostly followed the coast, very winding, occasionally cutting inland to go around a valley. The map shows scattered towns along the coast but most of these were out of sight. Several times we saw a road sign to a town which helped us keep track of our location and progress on the map.
We are staying in a 2 story apartment, light cream coloured concrete walls outside, overlooking a long blue pool. Deb and I are on the lower entrance floor. Twin beds, good size LCD TV, kitchenette, ridiculously small bathroom including shower – it’s so small there’s no door or curtain on the shower, balcony with table both downstairs and upstairs. Upstairs has bigger bed and bigger washroom but no TV.
Hey – funniest thing! Not supposed to put toilet paper in the toilet – it’s all supposed to go into a small wastebasket in the washroom under the sink. Hah!
1100 blue sky, clouds way off in the distance. Debbie and I walked down to the beach to look around. It’s a lot of gravel and pebbles along here, a bit hard on bare feet. Palm trees, pink bougainvillea. 1300 by the pool with Kathy, Debbie and a beer. Who knows where Richard is, seeking an English language newspaper. Kathy is feeling a bit better after the sauna this morning (on-site Turkish steam bath). Life is good. Poolside – notice the fat people, this could be a resort or all inclusive resort anywhere.
1430 went out for milkshakes – also had a pizza for lunch at AXOS bar, very laid back. Afternoon – read and slept by the pool while Richard and Kathy went for a walk. Slight sunburn as a result.
1700 went breakfast shopping with Richard and Debbie at a corner market. Kathy is lying down again. Then Deb and I had some wine on the balcony.
1930 We all went down the streat to a restaurant spotted by Richard & Kathy earlier. A great dinner! I had mousaka. Deb had spinach pie and tomato soup. See – she does eat something other than spaghetti! A good day for all of us to recover from yesterday’s long travel day and tough evening drive.
