... drove to Makryolagios, which I have to say is one of the most attractive beaches we've seen here. Gorgeous waters, sand, sand and more sand and lots of places to eat and drink. The perfect place to wind down before we return to Elounda and pack. Three weeks has raced by but we have loved our time away and also relished the opportunity to spend three weeks in each other's company and (Friday aside) only each other's.

She glossed over a lot of the dates and figures and just ...
... there is on the complex of 36, so we will be spoilt once more - and the coins will have a more critical impact. We are venturing to Spinalonga tomorrow, we can see the island former leper colony from the apartment and spent breakfast watching the boats heading over, so as impatient as we are we're off there tomorrow. It was either that or the Samarias Gorge but Keith is worried we might break our legs and so it's better to do that in week three rather than week ...
