Olympic did their '12 islands of Christmas' again this year, so, not wanting to disappoint them, I shook their hand before they sobered up and clinched a great deal to KC for 10 days in October again!
We will be off to Finikounda in the Peloponese in June for the firat time, but will be on the lookout for a bargain deal to Plakias any other time.
Can't wait to get back to Greece, and Plakias especially.

Having had to miss our Plakias fix last year,  (due to a tour around Italy)  We have rectified this for 2018.  The special offers from Olympic can be quite good.  So we will return in September flying from Manchester as Olympic seem to have a problem with LBA.  Also new for this year is yet another airline, Air France are the carrier for some flights to Heraklion.  Will be different, possibly moules and frites?? on board. well I can live in hope.
Looking forward to meeting old friends and seeing what is new.

Thank you for keeping us all up to date and whetting appetites !  We came back last year with olive oil from Sifi's and every time I open it I think of their fabulous food - our favourite first night and last night place to eat.

The apartments have been a concrete shell for about a couple of years now, look like four boxes about 50 yards past on the rocks  towards the new harbour, they are up a short track about 10 meters higher than the main road.

We stay with George at Creta Mare, just next to On the Rocks.
So where about are the new apartments "just up from On the Rocks" being built ?

Charlie is fine still running around like a mad puppy at 11 years old.
Sorry for the delay, its been a busy time here in the last few weeks with building our house, everything is good here, a few changes... Manolis from Manolis Apartments at the back is building a new house/apartments next to the camping site, he and his family will live there all year round and also rent some rooms in the summer, he currently lives in Rethymno in the winter and comes to Plakias every day to feed his chickens round the back by the Youth Hostel.
A bit more work has gone on with the new apartments just up from "On the Rocks" but work has stopped again so who knows when they will be finished.
The road just up from Tasomanolis is about to get obliterated with two 30 ton diggers parked there and some blue marker paint on the road so it looks like we are in for some new drains, the car park opposite Kri Kri is now a builders yard with 60 odd tons of stone and gravel and a few machines waiting for the work to start.
We went out to Sifis last night and can report that there new log fire is brilliant, they have also enclosed the front with some new glass doors and removed the old white ones so the place has now doubled in indoor seating, he said that they will remove the log burner in the summer though so some of you might not see it.
Most of the boats are out of the water at the moment and parked around the new harbour.
A couple more houses are being built on the road from Plakias / Souda to Selila.

Weather wise most days are around the 15 deg mark some a bit windy with showers but some like a summers day getting into the low 20`s in the sun.
I love this time of year as locals are more relaxed now the Olives are done and they have time to sit and chat and drink plenty of Greek coffee and Raki of course.
