Day two bit of a lie in as no sleep the night before... Headed off to find Banana beach and so glad we did, got a nice spot to place our shower curtain (lol) and towels, after a while first dip in sea and I have NEVER known sea so warm not one patch at all bliss!! Now having lunch at Augustera Bar in Kook, lovely chilled place with the most gorgeous resident Alsation dog.. Now moved onto the pool area back at Villa Maria. Where to eat tonight decisions decisions, hoping to watch Wales win tonight! Yammas!!
Love Agustera Bar & the hosts Dino & Efi. Also they have Strongbow on draught:) Glad you enjoyed your day. We're hoping to get into Infinity Blue tonight but if not we'll go down to Ag P. Isn't it lovely to feel "back home"? Have a lovely evening.
Good to hear you're enjoying yourself Di. You didn't say whether it was Big Banana or Small Banana!!!
Tre I hope you have a wonderful night at IB, my favourite restaurant. I like to round off a meal there with a night cap or two or three at the Xanthi Bar. If you've never dropped in you don't know what you are missing!
Ate at Jasteri tonight was lovely meal of cold sliced peppers with feta for me, fried feta with honey and sesame for Mick, oven roast lamb for him and moussaka for me, bread, half kilo wine, 2 sprites €43 complimentary melon afterwards. Now watching the Wales/Portugal match in Christakis Sports Bar.. 😀
Drove into town this morning, had a walk round to get our bearings a bit as still get lost, had coffees at Mythos bar on the New Port then ambled up Pap street and called in to have a chat with the lovely Odysseas at First rent car office where he gave us some pointers where to eat etc, such a nice guy. Then popped to Kolios beach for another warm swim, it came a bit cloudy and we decided to have a bit of lunch in the taverna there but its really all fish and we are not that adventurous fish wise so nipped back to V Maria after calling for baguettes and ate lovely ham sandwiches on our balcony. We then drove up towards Koukanaries, called in Agustera bar for a beer and a coke, I had the beer and lovely it was . After this we decided to try find Maratha beach for tmrw, thanks my friend on here who explained whereabouts it was, Ive posted a video on fb skiathos friends site I think or boomerang, posted that many and I dont like duplicating on both pages. Love the far ends of the beach, dont use beds as they're often too close for my liking... Tried to find Taverna Dyonissos in town but couldnt, Odysseas has shown me where it is now, tried phoning them to book for tonight but no answer, also emailed, awaiting a reply but we are dining in town tonight, where that may be who knows?? It's all good . I will say prices are a bit higher which we expected, we got *done* by a cheeky waiter I will say bur it wont happen again, not going to say where but our fault for being lax... I honestly always tip but I dont like money being taken... Anyway off to get ready for tonights mystery dining, watch this space
Beautiful tasty meal in lovely surroundings, I had kleftico that was beautifully cooked, hubby had pork slouvaki.. Walnut cake and ice cream for himself baklava and ice cream for me (first time Ive tried this, didnt realise it had walnuts in and I dont like them so they were left on the plate lol.. Half litre of delicious white wine for me with 2 bottles of sorite, bottle of water, bottle of coke and bread for two all came to €50.50... Nice walk along both ports taking in the people... Such a warm evening, looking forward to some serious beach chilling tmrw... Night all till the next instalment
Bob I posted about it on fb I think and thanked someone for telling me ie you... But when we got there nxt morning, I couldnt bear the amount of giant ants so we didnt stop! Very poor internet access everywhere we have been, currently sat near pool before getting ready to go out as no wifi anywhere else working at villa maria, Dennis can vouch for thst. I hope he and Vera got home ok yesterday, they are a delightful couple and it was a pleasure to meet them both again though Dennis doesnt remember we met briefly two years ago when we had both recently joined this forum. So hot today, not been on a beach as bit too much sun yesterday... Best meal experience so far Dyonnisos in town, sorry if spelt wrong I can barely see the words Im typing... Will try and catch up soon.... Tarra for now
Good to hear that you are having such a great time Di. I must have misread your post as thought you had gone to Maratha beach. What a shame about the ants. I can't say I've ever come across them at a beach. Did you get the room you had hoped for or was Dennis right about it? Bob
Hi Bob I was expecting a room on the middle floor as Dennis said but we are on the top floor which is lovely except cant get wifi in the room. Have you heard anything from Dennis since he got home? We had a meal at Captain Nikos tonight, it was ok... Now in Boudoriani apts bar and its lovely... Yes when we parked up at Maratha beach I was jumping about to avoid a lot of large ants, went down to the beach and I refused to lie down because of them, we went to Eleni beach where there were still a fair few and they were carrying things to and fro lol.. Might try Kechria tomorrow, not been there yet have you? Weather fabulous....
Had our evening meal at Captain Nikos down the road here last night... It was ok thats all... Then had a walk round to have drinks in the bar area of Boudourania apts, very nice it was too and we can see the apts from our room, they are perfectly situated in Troulos just after Salt and Pepper, lovely pool area... Im up early today, Ive been having naps in the late afternoon and sometimes that stops me sleeping well at night, it felt cooler last night though to say how hot it was yesterday, we had intended to go back into town last night to eat but I just couldnt face the business again... Ive also given in and logged in via my mobile data this morning, I had so many imessages to read too so Im going to use it all day if I want to as its a £3 a day charge so may as well use it 🤔 Nothing from Dennis yet anyone? I hope all is ok there.....
