Greek tour 2010 Wednesday 1st September

Ah ha! We said to ourselves when we awoke, the was not a reference to the sudden appearance of the Scandinavian POP band of the same name but because a lovely breeze had sprung up and had taken the edge off the heat.

The breeze had also cleared the air and we were afforded views of all the surrounding islands even far away Evia

Given that it was a bit brisk even for our resident professor of tanning Valerie to sunbathe we took the opportunity to grab a taxi (one of the 4 on the island) and head for the hora or old town up on the hill behind the harbour.

Alonissos had a bad earthquake in 1952 and the old town was badly damaged. The locals moved down to the harbour area and built new houses there. The horn is now gradually being rebuilt and restored and its warren of little streets and small chapels is heartstoppingly beautiful as well as affording the visitor amazing 360 degree views of the island and the sea
So there never let it be said we do not attempt to educate you our gentle readers.

After an afternoon by the pool we
showered and headed down to the harbour for some food.

Installing ourselves in the front row of Corali val and I watched the world go by and sipped an ouzo or two.much to our surprise we noted that Jesus or a young David Essex was crewing In a yacht in the harbour. Val was MOST impressed

Got very very very drunk with Mark and.Dave
