Return t-2 and counting

The Greek Child has been asking if there is a pool anywhere we can take him that he can go and swim in as it seems the Med doesn't count as the right kind of pool. We eventually gave in and had a look around but there are no public pools so an alternative course of action was decided on and we would go and gate-crash one of the resort hotels outside the town. We decided that we could play the role of 'pasty white tourist' and sit and have a few drinks while skinny child could have a swim around. I have to say that in 'red faced white bodied sun-averse cold-beer-drinking' tourist I think I have found my natural acting role and a new career in acting awaits. 

 The Greek emergency services heard I was heading down to the beach for a swim and had the appropriate rescue equipment on stand-by.

In an update on the 'kissing spot' in yesterday's photo, we spotted a Greek chap seemingly using it as a lady-fishing spot last night, using the technique of sitting there like an angler fish waiting for an unsuspecting widow to come wandering by. He had no takers sadly, but there's always tomorrow.

In no way was driving down onto the beach to take that photo a bad idea. Oh no, not at all. Lovely soft sand. Very deep and very soft sand. And steep. With no grip. Even in four wheel drive. We only just made it out by backing right up to the water's edge where the sand was harder, flooring it and ignoring the smell of burning coming from the front and slowly slowly crawling our way up and out again. 

Good Lady Wife #1's sole comment on the episode was a withering look and a comment of "pillock".
