Nice hot day today, and the sun is getting that 'Greek intensity' about it.
Still a little cool in the evening, but I did go for a walk tonight in just a T-shirt, and it wasn't cold. Sorry, let me re-phrase that! No cardigan over my T shirt....

Quite a number of people were enjoying the morning sun and a bite to eat at 3 W's this morning. We've not eaten there yet, although have been for drinks many a time, but I've heard Margarita does a mean ommelette!

A walk around the older part of the village this evening saw the tavernas and restaurants there doing pretty good trade, it's very atmospheric to eat at one of the places there, listening to the sound of the waves, and after dark seeing the twinkling of lights on the Diapontia Islands

Cabmufc, the worried men play a bit of blues, a bit of country, a bit of Bob Dylan, George Harrison, etc. They generally play through May and June, then have a break until Sept, as one of them returns to the UK.


 
So they might be around playing whe we arrive in Sept??...bring it on!! :D :D
Life is what you make it....Dont backdate it...

I hope it's ok ......someone has commented that it's about 15 degrees brrrrrrrr but that you can use most pools in San stef.....also suggested Athina pool next to the beach.....5euros a sunbed but you get a receipt which u can then use for food / drinks .
Hoping there's no need for that but at least there are options!!!!
Look forward to seeing you there !

I doubt if any of the pools are as cool as 15o in July! Certainly not in my experience.

Nice and sunny again today, with a lovely clear view across to the Albanian mountains.

Good news is that the seaweed problem has been cleared, and the beach is lookin' good! Must take a trip down there again soon, as the water was lovely and warm last week.

For those that have no walking problems, a nice place to go is at the top of the headland between here and San Stef. Theres the Akrotiri, with its gardens, to stop for a drink or a snack, and also, between there and the little chapel theres another little place to stop for refreshments....the name escapes me now, but whats nice is they have some great swinging seats to sit, right at the edge of the cliff, with fantastic views to Arillas.
And don't forget that the door to the little chapel is usually open, so its possible to take a look inside. If you're up on the cliff, take a look.

The name of the other little bar is Eriana,best not to swing too high on the swinging seats or you could end up in Arillas quicker than you think.
Don't forget Gravia  another lovely place to enjoy some refreshment.It is at the top of the pathway that leads down to Arrilas and overlooks the island also called Gravia.

Thanks Dupnica, for the name, and reminding us about Gravia....you're right, another lovely place on the cliff, with views to die for!

Took myself off to the beach this afternoon for a chance to enjoy the sun and sea. Lots of people there, on sunbeds outside Mango, and Waves, and quite a lot of cars parked indicating visitors from other resorts.
The sea was refreshing, and quite a few waves were rolling in due to a breeze (fortunately not a chilly one!). There was even enough surf for the two kite surfers that arrived. Made for quite an interesting afternoon watching them.

The daytime temperature at the moment seems to be settling nicely at around the mid 20's mark, according to the display on San Stef car hire opposite us. Last year I remember watching it creep up daily as the season progressed into July and August, hitting 40 a few times, before edging down again in September.
