So here we are in sunny Kefalonia. So far the day went like this...Woke up early and promptly went back to sleep. Woke again around eight and showered before breakfast. Boiled eggs, ham and cheese, toast, fruit, sweet Greek cakes, orange juice and coffee.
Then I got ready to walk up the lane to the village of Karavados where there is a little supermarket or "mini mart". It was around two miles there and back. I returned with "Mythos" beer, water, wine and snacks. Life's essentials
Above - In Karavados this morning. Below - lunch by the sea.
Then to the hotel's pool area in the shade of a palm tree, reading our novels and swimming. I noticed the acrobatic winging of swallows.
Around two in the afternoon we got ready to walk down to a little bay nearby. We had a light lunch in a traditional taverna, overlooking The Ionian Sea and then descended to the little sandy cove where we set up beach camp till six in the evening. I swam right out into the blueness and later in the soft cliffs I found a layer of seashells that must have been deposited at the time of the dinosaurs - anyway, long ago that's for sure.
Then up past the little pink Greek Orthodox church and back along the lane to our hotel where we washed away the saltiness of the sea and lounged again as the red hot sun disappeared over the other side of the island. Time for a beer and another chapter. Then showered once more we came down for dinner. Greek salad, kleftiko, moussaka, stuffed tomatoes and honeydew melon with a jug of local wine.

It's getting dark now as I sit here writing this post in the hotel lobby where the wi-fi is strongest. And so that's all for now folks. Best wishes...YP x
