We have actually been off the island twice this month, once by car to visit an english friend over the waters and once by taxi boat where we went out to eat beside the sea, again with my dear friend.
An aging expat left the island, returning to care in the homeland, and left behind many of her belongings, mostly clothes. She generously agreed for them to be sold, at bargain prices, all organised by my hard working friend J, and proceeds go to the stray dogs. There are fewer and fewer stray dogs thank goodness. By law they should now all be chipped and J works relentlessly to find them good homes either here in Greece or elsewhere in Europe. Any that are left are sterilised and looked after by J and a few other volunteers.
I was fortunate to 'inherit' some very nice tops and jackets. Most of them are linen and I have been washing and ironing now for days. Linen is cool in the summer but it does take a bit of ironing and creases easily. Smart though.
Here are some photos from the car trip
Google has got all the photos back to front so we begin the journey at the end.
