The last of the summer ouzos
The end of a summer season.
The pot of basil that was decorating this tree stump has dried up and withered away. The basil has been replaced by a hardier pot of mint which will regenerate next spring after a good rainfall and some warm sunshine
The beach bar has closed. We went down and finished their last drop of ouzo last weekend. The next day the 'palikaria' (youths of strength and courage is one translation) had a beach party and finished up the rest of the booze.
No WiFi. Please talk to each other
The sea was a little rough but a perfect day for sailing
Most of the small boats here will be taken out of the water for the winter. The bay gets very rough in a northerly gale. We'll be down sometime in the winter to see what the sea has washed up, besides plastic bottles and shoes
Small boys and tall boys trapped wasps, without getting stung, while we enjoyed a last drink at the waters edge.
