    Happy New Year

    December 31, 2018 in Greece ⋅ 🌧 7 °C

    Here’s wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2019.
    As you can see the weather here in the Mediterranean is very British it’s cold, wet and windy!
    In preparation for the party tonight John and I helped to build some plastic screens to enclose the outside space and decorate the area.

    Καλή Χρονιά!: Happy New Year!

    Cruising again the start of the return

    March 25, 2019 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    We had a great last night in Levkas Marina there was even a party in our honour, well almost, it was both for the marina leavers and to celebrate the owners of the Porto Cafe having managed it for 5 Years. They provided nibbles a party cake and flowers for their staff.
    John was awarded a Golden Compass award for his carpentry skills having saved the New Years Eve party by constructing a wind proof surround for the outer area. Other awards were for eco warrior, cultural bridging, community spirit and a special one for Shadow the first marina baby 👶. It was a great night with Ugly Potatoes providing great live music and vocals.
    We left the Marina today, Greek Independence Day and headed south to Nidri just to check that all was well. We did encounter a small problem as we were preparing to leave, it looks like while tidying up some wiring and adding extra sockets John may have inadvertently removed the aerial cable for the small stand alone GPS unit!
    Tomorrow we plan to return to Lefkada town and anchor off for a night, this means I can go to knit and natter one last time before going to Preveza on Wednesday ready for a lift out on Friday at Ionian Boat Marina when we will start the re antifouling process.

    Orthodox Easter in Greece

    April 28, 2019 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Just spent a wonderful day with Stephanie K and her family celebrating Easter Sunday in a typically Greek fashion with the whole family and lots of friends at the family villa just up the hill in Ligia. 3whole spit roasted lambs, dyed hard boiled eggs, that you use to try to crack your opponents egg, overall winner gets a year of good luck, lamb innards soup 🥣, name begins with a K, (surprisingly delicious) and wonderful patisserie style desserts.
    The previous evening we stayed up till midnight to attend the church service, see the icons on parade and light our candles from the light of Christ that gets flown to Greece by fighter jet from Jerusalem. We also got to hear a lot of giant banger and I mean giant, they hurt your ears. Photos of the parade to follow, will use those from the Lefkas press.

    Easter Sunday early morning parade

    April 28, 2019 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    As I mentioned the flame of Christ is flown in and after a church service the priests light the congregations candles and the congregation then light everyone else’s candles. Unfortunately it was a bit windy and the candles kept blowing out but the idea is that the flames get carried to peoples homes to bless the houses and families for the coming year. This is also the ending of Lent and some families break their fast after the service eating meat and other blood related food stuffs for the first time in 40 days, others wait till Easter Sunday lunch. Part of this also involves walking the churches decorated icons around the town.Read more
