Toujours ici à NISIS DHIAPOROS dans 'notre mouillage .....nous sommes toujours en vacances!! La vie est belle ....En plus, nous sommes que 2 voiliers!
Lazily, very lazily, continuing our vacances here at Nisis Dhiaporos anchored in 'our' favourite bay....the good life! Especially as we are only 2 yachts at anchor!
Finally, we got together with Lesley and Craig ...S/Y 'Shirley Valentine' Lesley is Scottish/Aussie and Craig definitely an Aussie, also from Queensland! Another occasion to fly our 'boxing kangaroo' flags! Also to support the Australian Olympic team...
So, more socialising, also with our lovely new friends, Nicky and John from the island...
Many thanks Nicky, for offering me the experience to read 'The Thread' by Victoria Hislop ..which I enjoyed passionately!
Evelyne and Jacky will join 'Pacific Pearl' next week. As they fly into Thessaloniki, we will hire a car to 'stock up' at the big supermarkets eg. Lidl and Carrefour....we understand that there is a huge Ikea by the airport!!
TODAY IS THE 14TH JULY ......TO MARK THE OCCASION, BRUNO, FEELING PATRIOTIC , HAS DECIDED TO FLY THE 'GRAND PAVOIS', AS WELL AS A BRAND NEW HUGE FRENCH FLAG......
life here anchored off Nisis Dhiaporos is just perfect, although 38° in the shade, fortunately we can 'ploof' as often as we desire, usually there is a pleasant breeze which helps. I say usually, as the winds are very light. Lots of reading, we seem to be enjoying our evening meal later and later after the outstanding sunsets! Our inside fans are working full time and the sun awnings are up permanently! Well it is SUMMER ...we are so lucky when hearing of the bad weather being experienced in norther Europe....
However, we are not being 100% lazy.....Bruno is taking advantage of this glorious weather to do some revarnishing , I have just cleaned up all the chrome etc.. Friends arriving soon, so not moving to far, enjoying so much just hanging around in this beautiful, unspoilt area.....we will certainly miss is enormously when we decide to move on, I am sure!
AUJOURD'HUI, c'est le 14 juillet .....BRUNO se sent patriote et vient de sortir le grand pavois et un nouveau pavillon français .....ENORME!
Il fait toujours très chaud...38° à l'ombre, mais, heureusement, on peut faire 'ploof' souvent, beaucoup de lecture, les siestes! on mange de plus en plus tard après le magnifique coucher de soleil, les ventilateurs à l'intèrieur sont en marche toute la journée, et les tauds de soleil à poste en permanence!
Bref, c'est l'été!!
