|Jez, Geoff & Sandra at "Mad Mary's in Vasiliki.|
Last week we had a night out with Jeremy and Debbie at the penguin taverna in Vasiliki affectionately known at this end of the island as Mad Mary's, if you had met Mary you would understand why. She spent the entire evening giving a new waitress hell, the girl, a Latvian, seemed to have vanished before we went home so I'm not sure if she told her what to do with the job.

I waited for a few days until the air temperature got to a more sensible 28C before I took the plunge.
Monday and we decided that we should introduce Geoff to the beautiful west cost of the island. We had a ride across country to where the Lentil growing capital of the world is at Eglouvi I think I may have mentioned it in more detail in a previous blog, and from there we went to one of our favourite secluded bays Gialos near Athani and then to Porto Katsiki before returning the scenic route down to Vasiliki. A good time was had by all.
Yesterday We spent the day at Tony and Liz's Attempting to make Tony's domestic water system independent from the mains as they have very high
pressure and also the supply is rather fickle as a guy up the hill keeps turning the taps off so he can have some water. Anyway, the header tank needed a shed building over it to protect it from the heat of the sun a large extent thus preventing the water from heating and the chance of any legionella spores breading there. This has turned out to be a bigger job than I think either of us anticipated and is still not actually completed after another days work on it. The pressure is really not adequate and it looks like he's going to have to re-mortgage to find the funds for a water system pressure pump. Hey Ho, I'm sure he'll take it all in his stride
