18 and 19 April – Our adventures on Kea

This very friendly donkey is obviously used to hikers stopping by to give him treats. As soon as he saw us, he came up to the stone wall and began making faces.  He was quite funny. I fed him dandelions which seemed to please him. As you can see he does not lack for tender edibles on his own side of the wall.

Our current abode at Red Tractor Farm is an outstanding studio. Here's Kathy enjoying a glass of wine on our front balcony. We also have a private little courtyard garden!

Kea is a gloriously beautiful island! We've  been here two days and are enjoying hikes which are a bit more "civilized" than the adventures of Crete!

hThe advantage of the studio is the kitchen wherein we can prepare a few of our own meals. Last night we had a delicious lamb roast. When we went to the butcher's he brought the whole carcass out from the freezer and cut off the chunk we requested. Of course while the meal cooked we enjoyed appies and wine in the sun. Pretty tough life! The advantage of the studio is the kitchen wherein we can prepare a few of our own meals. Last night we had a delicious lamb roast.

One of the famous icons of Kea, this natural rock formation has a smiling lion's face carved into it. No one knows the origin but general consensus seems to be that it may date from the 6thc BC.

    • Hi Joyce, feeling great! It’s the Mediterranean diet don’t you know! All that amazing olive oil, wine, tomatoes, lamb, did I mention olive oil, fish fresh from the sea, oh yes and then there’s the olive oil, and honey from local hives. Let me not forget the full fat rich thick Greek yoghurt, the fresh oranges picked straight from the trees. What more can I say? Ah yes the delicious fresh bakery items and well ….. It really must be all that olive oil! See you two soon for wine in the garden. Cheers
