Time off in Crete

imageThird visit to this beautiful Grecian Isle, the largest in the Med and definitely  my favourite. Spending 10 days with my two “children” and their partners and my grand daughter, it’s so wonderful to be all together and am feeling very lucky.

So in the heat what are we going to do today? Hit the mountains! Well the maps are out on the breakfast table on the shady balcony side of the house, will see what develops. Yesterday we lazed around the pool but the day before was a climb down the nearby gorge. A fantastic mornings effort rewarded by the stunning views and all the bright flowers. May is the month for freshness here. Previous visits have been at the tail end of the season in September when both the country and people are jaded it seemed.
