Holidays Away from Home




Going on holiday?  Leaving this Greek island paradise?
Everyday is a holiday here, so they tell us.

Well, wikipedia says 'a holiday is a day when normal activities are suspended'.

Yeh.  No cooking.  No cleaning.
12 days of swimming, reading, eating, choosing food from a menu.

Yup, we're off to our favourite holiday park, subsidised and run by the greek navy.  Green grass, trees, sandy beach and this year there are wooden sunbeds, wow.  All the kids are back at school.   We'll be the youngest amongst all the oldies, retirees who gossip, play cards, walk in groups along the beach and don't play loud music or scream at each other.

.
Damn, I'm getting old.  Peace and quiet!



Cheers big ears!

  1. Sounds pretty darn great!!!! After all, you have been on-the-run for a while, taking "care of" lots and lots of visiting family. And local ones too, probably.

    Why not crave some gentle, peace and quiet?

    Enjoy!!!!!!!!!

    1. It certainly is a rest. I've got plenty to read and some knitting. The WiFi here is very patchy.

    1. Not much to do around here. I even brought my knitting but haven't done any yet. Trouble is that it's all ex-navy and the men talk non stop about their days at sea
