Heading for a fall

Conkers thick on the grown outside our flat must mean it is time to end this blog.

I didn't devote as much time and energy to it as I should have but it was fun nevertheless.

So fare thee well summer of 2005.

Lifestyles of the rich and famous

We are having a ball here in Alonissos, a beautiful and quiet Greek island. Time is oozing by slowly, fuelled by the sun, carafes of local wine and plenty of seafood.

We spent a day on a boat crusing the smaller islands of the northern Sporades, many of them uninhabited.

We had lunch moored off a deserted sandy island which could have been in the Caribbean.

We rented a scooter for the day but after a couple of crashes - don't worry, no-one is hurt - we decided to stick to pedal power.

Tonight, we're taking a sunset walk to the top of the island, where we'll enjoy some ouzo.
