Katelios Chill Out

We arrived safely in Katelios on Sunday. The apartment is basic but spacious and very clean; the owners are lovely, Stella made us very welcome and we get discount at the family taverna on the waterfront.
So far we've just spent time chilling on the beach, snoozing, reading & swimming, oh and eating. The obligatory Ouzo's slipping down nicely at our favourite bar - a weathered deck on the beach, watching the moon rise over the hills and shine brightly over the sea. We've been enjoying some great Tzatziki & Houmus and calamari (of course!) - yesterday lunchtime it was baby squid caught fresh that morning, deep fried whole including the tiny ink sac - delicious. Last night Cathy had swordfish and I had large grilled prawns, with a shared Greek salad - no chips or rice (or half & half) for us thank you. Tomorrow we're touring the island, visiting Drogarati Cave, the underground lake of Melissani and the famous Myrtos Bay beach. Then some time in Fiskardo for some lunch & Tacky Shack shopping, then finishing off in Assos village. And on Thursday we're going to take a look at some of the churches & castles in the south, visit some Captain Corelli filming sites, then to Sami for swimming & a picnic lunch - oh and some wine tasting in the local vineyard. Then it'll be back to the beach for some recovery. More later ..... time for tea now.
