Happy Birthday

sunny 28 °C

Monday 17th June 2013. It's Jo's special birthday. Not that every birthday isn't special when you get to Jo's age! Cards and prezzie time. Unfortunately some numpty concealed a card from his daughter in his holiday rucksack. Then his daughter gave him a new holiday rucksack for an early father's day present to take away with him. With the result that the said card from said daughter is still in the old rucksack. Ooops! Breakfast done we loaded up the107 - that means we put one bag in it, and set off exploring. Great countryside, fantastic views, some great secluded beaches, coves and fishing villages. Superb tzatziki lunch under an olive tree at a small taverna perched atop a huge hill overlooking olive groves to the coast and sea beyond. A stop at a lovely sandy little beach for a dip on the way back and returned to the resort to find a complimentary birthday cake waiting for us. Yummy. A dip in our pool, freshen up and then dinner at the daios taverna tonight. More tzatziki, pitta, olives, souvlaki and lamb. All followed by yet another surprise birthday cake courtesy of the resort. Why Mr Greek ambassador, you spoil us! Completely satisfied (stuffed) we were drawn by a trio of salsa sirens at the ocean bar (bar near the infinity pool). Enchanted we listened and tapped to: perhaps, perhaps, perhaps; one tanamera (spelling) cuando, cuando, cuando etc. I was reminded of a recent stag do when sykesie approached the lone young guitar player and asked 'do you know any queen?' When the young man said he didn't sykesie anyway launched into: "anybody find me....... somebody to love" All in all not a bad birthday - score 2 for surprise birthday cakes.20130617_160553.jpg20130617_201556.jpg
