A drive in the country

... though it is winter, the sunshine was warm and out of the wind, hot enough to take off a layer of clothing. But, as it has been cold and grey over the past few days, we took a drive up the coast. We thought that we might find another quaint little town, something of interest, but no. As it is still low season, the coast was full of closed shops and closed resorts which made the towns look very sad.

We drove 40km to ...

... drive (Andrew did an amazing job though!) and after a short rest, walked the 200 metres to the port. We sat with the cool people (Andrew's tracky daks getting only a few stares!) and had a coffee called a Freddo Cappuccino. Fabulous.

The pictures tell it all. The street scenes are from the street next to us. Such beautiful ...

I went to Crete in 2011. We lived in an old white house about 20 minutes outside Chania. While there we rented a car and drove all over the island. I saw the most beautiful beach and we had lovely food and company. The smell of thyme and olives that you just get in Greece is also the most amazing smell.

I got some pictures as well.
