... on the beach, more swimmers came and went, I tried the toe test! It feels far too cold for swimming, just a paddle was enough! The beach cafes are open and the one closest to us has a group of Brits enjoying the sun and coffee. Eventually a few clouds bubbled up and we took our chairs iver to Dream Catcher and had lunch, , after we drove to the port at Souda to buy our ferry tickets.

The drive was lovely with the sun shining on the fresh snow. We frequently stopped to take photographs, once again we had ...
