Bleak

Posted by Shortie Williams on November 7, 2016 at 8:05 AM

We have had a couple of really nice days in between the bleak ones and even when it is dingy there are some nice scenes here.
 I was just passing along the front the other day and thought how miserable a day it was and then I looked around and changed my mind a bit!
There was a lone guy fishing on the beach. Never seen fishing like this! Not that I know anything about fishing. Done a bit of fresh water fishing years ago but nothing serious.
this guy had a giant ball floating in the sea. No rod! His line was somehow attached to the ball. I saw this as he drew the ball from the water!

Then I looked around and this I found inspiring

Is it just me! am I easily impressed! Maybe I'm going potty!
Anyway, it's another miserable one today. It hasn't rained much during the day and it is still warm, but miserable!
Bumped into this chap yesterday. I had to move him as he was walking across our drive and I was just about to drive out that way! Didn't want to squash him! I moved him with a shovel as I didn't like the look of that spike sticking up from his back!
He was about 4" long. Twice the size of a garden slug, but so colourful!
I assume he is a caterpillar but don't really know. Does anyone else know!


He looked mighty p***ed off with me for moving him. I couldn't get a smile out of him!nBut at least he was safe!

The old Chicken Shack in Katastari has re-opened and with new owners!
It is now called Thimari which is Greek for Thyme.
A great selection of meals from a couple of Alykanas restaurant owners.
It's great to have a nice full menu so local to us in the winter and I'm sure most of you would love to be there too!

And here they are! Yep, you got it! Speros and George from Alkionis.
Great meal we had there too.
They also do take out and deliveries. The new delivery boy would probably get a little lost on his way to deliver your order in the UK but with a little practice he'll get there

He said that he is "Lubbin' it Right now"

Off he goes!

The forecast for the next 10 days looks a little like this!

Up and down!
anyway! See ya later!

Hi there Shortie and crew, the caterpillar looks like a greater elephant hawk moth caterpillar, didn't know they were native to Greece, we have them here!
Are George and Spiros going to be at Alkyonis in the summ or is this going to be all year round for them?
Have a great winter say Hi to Jules from us!
