Happy Birthday your majesty...

 Today is the ninetieth birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.  What a fantastic job she has done for Britain, the commonwealth and much of the world in general without being political at all.  A fine example of a human being, whether or not you are a royalist you can't help but admire her.  Happy Birthday Ma'am.

Tomorrow the Olympic flame will be ignited at Ancient Olympia in the Peloponnese, there will be a relay of the flame through Lefkas tomorrow afternoon around 16:30 by four Local "heroes", which I guess will be something a bit different.  The flame will of course be heading to Brazil ending up at Rio in time for the summer games.

We got back to the marina yesterday for our weekly couple of nights on the boat and just got settled down when some guys on the charter boat next to us started deep sanding all the teak decking.  What a god awful mess they made of our boat and so today we have had to clean her all down - again!.  It was a good job that we had taken down the winter cover and replaced it with the bimini shade so at least all the powered wood and  black sikaflex adhesive didn't get on the main canvas, We had left up the spray-hood though so this will have to come down tomorrow and go with us back to Sivota where, at Ray and Linda's place I have the room to lay it all out and clean it properly.
At least the Charter boss did offer to hose it off for us but we know he wouldn't have done it like us and of course Lesanda is up for sale so she needs to look loved.

The next week will be our last week at Sivota looking after Ray and Linda's, I would just like to thank them for letting us do it.  It was especially poignant for me as it's exactly a year since we lived there last year after my stroke and it gave me the time and strength to be able to make the journey back home.  Much has happened over the last twelve months since but at that time I didn't foresee a great future ahead for us, now, hopefully things are much brighter.
