We woke up and Sammy almost immediately jumped into the water! The kids couldn’t wait to get over to the beach with the trampolines in the water- they had a great time playing on them, swimming around and trying to play with some other kids(but the language barrier was too intimidating) … we ate lunch at the resort and tried some more new foods! Fried cheese (as if cheese needed MORE fat!!) Not sure how many weight watchers points that meal was, but I’ve completely given up trying to count them!! We have had so much tasty foods and deserts and bread… the other night we ate this rye bread with raisins, chocolate and honey?? We think- ?? it was an amazing tastebud treat! Each time we eat out, they automatically bring complementary sweets at the end of the meal. Tonight s meal we got the sweetest watermelon (which seems to grow everywhere almost wild like the blueberries in Maine) But after tonight’s meal which began with crusty Greek bread smothered in olive oil, I’m still not faring well!!
We pulled anchor and headed to Poros. It is a big port town with tons of markets, restaurants, café’s, and a big clock tower which is what you climb up the side of a hill to see…the view is gorgeous overlooking the harbor. We got sucked in to a tourist shop and bought t-shirts, and gifts, and I guess David Frost was right in calling us the Griswalds of 2010!! No berets though! LOL!
We knew it was inevitable for Max to break his glasses… but yes, it’s happened!
The kids are in bed after being tucked in with ice cubes wrapped in a damp towel. It is currently 10:45 pm. it is still about 90 degree F, and I’m about done with this heat quite honestly- there isn’t even a breeze- I can honestly say if Greece wasn’t so darn cool, and beautiful with nice friendly folks, I’d of bailed on this trip b/c of the heat a few days back! God, please send us a breeze, parakalo!!
Steve- Final recap- the restaurant had my camera…too hot to write anything else..ice cubes messing with the keyboard…uploaded new pics….Poros hot but cool
