Thought Tasty Corner must be opening soon Lesley, as their menu boards are now in place on their front wall, and tables and chairs out on the patio.

After a rather soggy weekend, the sun is out again, and yesterday so were lots of people, getting prepared for Summer  8)

Margarita's supermarket, and Eleni's supermarket had the shutters up, and were cleaning and organising. Spiros at Silver Star had the pressure washer going on the patio, and work also going on at Brusko. Some preparations happening in Condor, and sprucing up at Athens Bar.

The sea was the most beautiful colours yesterday.....walking down gthe steps next to Havana Bar, the view was gorgeous, with the sea going from pale blue, to aquamarine, turquiose, deep blue, to almost navy...

Another lovely day, so another trip down to San Stef to get on with some work. But not until after a quick walk along the beach, and a dip in the sea for Bod. Quite windy on the beach today, but once back in the village it was a lovely day, and once again lots of us working and prepping.

Tasty Corner is definitely opening tomorrow, so there will be some gyros for us to indulge in, whilst working! Havana Bar is, I believe opening on Sunday, plus of course we have Town Pizza at weekends, and 3 W's open from aorund 2pm daily, as they have been doing through the Winter.

Plenty going on again today, with Athena Hotel pool being repainted, and Barras pool being scrubbed and jet washed.
Spiros was busy in Beer O Clock, and planning to open 2nd May, and Manthos Taverna walls were getting a fresh coat of paint.

Tereza's new apartments are coming along nicely, and the new little villa at Rose Garden looks lovely

Spiros and Aris busy next to us at Spiros Bikes, work being done inside, and bikes being checked over.

And, like the other supermarkets, Aspa were getting organised too.

Love this time of year, as the village starts to come to life again.......  :D

Thank you Jackie - So lovely to hear how the village is starting to prepare for the season.  I cant wait, although have a long wait!! August for us! The beach sounds beautiful, and I bet Bod enjoyed a dip in the stream.

Jackie, will Bod recognise my voice, like he did last year, probably only because I brought him dog treats?

Oh he'll recognise any voice that accompanies doggy treats.....although he needs to shed a few 'Winter Kilo's' before indulging through the Summer!!  ;D

Another fabulous sunny day again today, so lots of prep going on.

Zorba's were busy cleaning their outside area, and their sign has been put back up, after being safely stored away for Winter.

Preparations also going on in Sparkles, and Perdita's glass, and Nafsika had windows thrown open, getting rooms ready.

And we had our first San Stefanos gyros of the season at Tasty Corner, for lunch, yum!  ;D

Thanks Jackie for all the updates.Here I am wishing my life away, September seems so faraway! Planned our first day already (old habits die hard) arrive at Silver moon about dinner time, something to eat and drink with Tom and Maria,maybe a quick hello to Aspa for milk etc. unpack, first meal at 2star. Then we play each day as it comes.So many people to say Hello to.  Hope Dimitri at Taste of life hasn't sold all his tapestry hangings! There is only one thing for it. I will have to go and live there. Well...I can dream can't I.     Love June.
