As forecasted it`s windy today and Jean says we ought to go to Chora. That`s ok with me but, she then drops the bombshell that she thinks we should walk in! So that`s what we do and we see some black winged stilts near the airport and some other smaller birds.

We get into town and see Elbis one of Scirroco`s old boys now working at Prime.

Have a walk around the narrow avenues and alleyways but no sign of Tony Christie and have a coffee at Captains.

The wind is blowing the sea over the Portara and it would be taking a risk to visit there today. The wind is getting worse and the boats arrive in good numbers around lunchtime. They are rolling around like mad. We see Aqua Jewel, Aqua Spirit, Super Ferry 2, Blue Star Delos, Express Skopilitis, Super Jet which eventually arrives over an hour late but does not continue her run to Mykonos and lastly High Speed 5. What a couple of hours! Super Ferry couldn`t dock for a while as the Aqua boats were there. As Jean says it would have been most unpleasant to have been waiting in the bow of  the ship to disembark for an extra 15 minutes!

We catch the bus back thankfully at 3 pm and spend a couple of hours on the beach. We get changed and stroll down to Agia Anna and have our evening meal on the beach at the Ostria again. Jean tucks into a pork fillet which she says was excellent and I have Chicken Ostria, which was very nice.

We have a stroll around and head back to our room and have a night cap on our balcony. Manage to see Greece beating the Russkies but miss the end as I am about to drop off!
