|Aussie Paul's Birthday bash.|
|Our potential mooring in Olympic marina, Lavrion.|
|Rafina ready for Christmas|
On Wednesday morning we set off on our mission to find somewhere for the following winter looking at moorings and marinas from Athens, which we we wouldn't touch with a bargepole, up to Evia which is gorgeous via Rafina, Porta Rafti and Lavrion. The Athenian places were just not secure enough there was no life on the marina's and the area's involved are slightly less than salubrious, maybe fine if you are always there but we leave the boat for long periods so not for us. We did like both Chalkis and the Olympic marina at Lavrion, these both had the same problem.

|Sandra's Family get together.|
|And Mikes birthday too!|
|My poor old mower deck, no bearings left.|
Sunday we got to see two of our Grandchildren Jessica and Mason singing in the school choir at the local garden centre, of course they were brilliant you would expect me to say anything else.
In the evening we went to the local hostelry, to have what is now an annual family get together with over twenty but not all of Sandra's family, this year it was organised by Sandra's cousin Kath who made a super job of it and we all had a great night especially Mike, Kath's nephew, who was a day short of his birthday and was duly embarrassed.
On Monday I finally managed to get the deck off my lawnmower and order the correct parts for mending it. They have to come from the USA and the postage and import duties are actually almost as much as the parts themselves, nevermind they are still much cheaper than getting a new lawn tractor.
Merry Christmas everyone. Les, Sanny and Geoff.
