Most of the beaches have tamarisk trees to shelter under. My favourite isolated beach has about seven - they were planted years ago by an Englishman who loved the place, so much that he came back to die there(not on the beach). I met a young guy at the taverna there who had been his private secretary in the old guy's last months and had returned there in his memory, nice gesture. I think of the old guy every time I crest the hill and look down on the bay and see the tops of the trees.

Cocktails Me? Beer, wine and ouzo will do me.

[Note I wrote 'came back' as if I were already there, which I am in mind and soul]

Patmos is my 'Arran' - you know what I mean.

Sounds great. Just googled it. Sounds a bit like Paxos just south of Corfu. We used to be regular visitors to North Eastern Corfu which is just fantastic and took the seaplane down to Paxos a few times. Im really envious, miss all that. So are you taking the van to the island? Im my experience the little islands are generally not served by car ferries.

Oh yes we are taking the MH. You must have missed my other posts - I sometimes think i am boring by repetition but obviously some of my 'fans' don't see them.

We leave Katowice next Tues, ferry from Ancona Sun 13th, camping on deck, 3 days on Peloponnese, 17th ferry direct to Patmos. In normal times that service runs daily Piraeus-Patmos-Leros-Kos- Rhodos. Even the big ferries service islands as small as Schinoussa and Koufonissia once or twice a week, because trucks bringing food and gas have to get there.

We are going to leave the MH in a boatyard I know and fly back, then return in Sept to have another couple of weeks on Patmos with my 'Sept Club' friends, incl. Sabine, my old girlfriend, who Basia already met when we all four met up in La Gomera, Canaries. Then 2 weeks on mainland before ferry home.

I very much like Paxos and stopped a few days there - some stories when I see you(could not even be told on FC!)

Apologies to my 'fans' who have already read this stuff, but Barry does not seem to pay attention.
