So far...

   We spent a rather exhausting time in pelion. The sun was barely under 30 degrees C for most of our stay. To escape from this exhaustion everyday we marched out of the house and went to various beaches along the coast. During these 2 weeks some friends came to visit from athens. They stayed at a rather nice hotel which l found had a rather intresting background to it. It was built in the 1800's by a greek merchant returning from egypt, and on the village of agios dimitrios he built a rather flashing mansion. But in the middle of the 20th century it was abandoned and left to ruin for 8 years before a man from athens came along bought the mansion and converted it into a hotel.  So we had a good time with them. As l might of said in the beginning of our holiday we moved into our new summer house. Quite earlier than planned 2 albanians came and practically picked up our house and put it in the van. We have also eaten in various rather nice restraunts beside the beaches. l was rather disapointed because l didn't catch a glimpse of a snake during the trip as whenever l do stumble across one l don't have my camera on me. l made another rather nice meal from Claire Macdonald which we all enjoyed. For three days we went down to milena where we did a bit of sailing. While l am writing this l am worrying about my faithful mutt and how he is coping without us as we had to put him in a kennel, my dog had a rather exciting holiday and chased goats in the afternoon and perhaps a good fox in the evening. Though he did just prefer to lie under an olive grove and dose in the sun. He also had a fair amount of time bouncing around with his girlfriend , which shouldn't be happening as we had him castrated 3 months ago. l'm afraid that there will be another lapse of time before l can post another blog again as l am leaving to england in 2 days.
