I walked to Souda a couple of times and didn't see anything although I was expecting to see something going on!
I just read your message again, are you talking development in Thassos. I haven't got my thinking head back on yet!!
Welcome back. Hope you had a good time. The wind seemed to have dropped to nothing by the time we left at one o’clock on the 19th.
Thanks for the advice before we went, we hired a car for a few days and got about a bit. The wind was about the same as at Plakias wherever we went, except Chora Sfakia, which was an oasis of calm.
Had lunch there and I ordered meatballs. Having come home, I see you said on an old post that you had meatballs to die for there, but not which place you used. We went right at the harbour and lunched at the last place with tables overlooking the water (on the left, there is one more place to the right of the road). When the meatballs came they were soon accompanied by a plague of wasps, so the waiter lit some powder on a saucer and by the time I finished, I was eating smoked meatballs!
A good sign was that, on ordering, the waiter ran off to the kitchen, then returned to say they were still cooking and would not be ready for half an hour. I have been to places in Greece where they would serve up half cooked. They tasted very good and the tip was, also.
I was talking about Thassos. We last went there in the late '70s. We looked at some brochures in '99, but did not recognise the place we had found so magical and ended up going to Crete, though not Plakias. This has been our first visit to P, and, though more developed than Thassos was in the 70s, it has a very similar feel and I know we will be back.
We did look for you every time we passed the Livicon, but did not see you. I think we may have spotted you on the beach – did you use a blue beach towel held to the bed by beach shoes through the corner holes?
