Thank you for your report. Good to know what's going on.
Plakias / Re: Any Plakias Updates?
« Last post by Frank And Julie on January 21, 2018, 04:21:18 PM »

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.

Albeit slightly off-subject but I don't think anyone will mind - interesting news indeed whilst we wait for an update from Plakias !  So, anywhere near Snaith?

Having come through 3 separate blizzards this morning on the way to work and my return home under caution with a weather warning looming for 3pm today - anything exciting happening in Plakias to help dispel this winter more quickly?  How is Charlie - still paddling?  Looked bright and sunny earlier there this morning.

A very Happy New Year to all fellow Plakias-lovers...the diet starts today (again!!).  First full week back at work and still reeling from scraping the ice off the car with a -9 temperature in central Scotland this morning !  Went on to webcams and noticed its a bit overcast in Plakias and then looked at Chora Sfakia.....that looks like the end of the world may be coming over the hill at the moment !   34 weeks to September in Plakias....and then aaaaahhhh, bliss on the beach!  Keep well everyone and all the very best for 2018 !
Plakias / Re: Olive oil on tables

Hello Yvonne. We often think of you and those olden days when we could both walk easily(That's us 2)
Brain cells dwindling at the same rate as muscles but at least we're still here
Oh how I would love to come back to Plakias via Chania, Kissamos and Paliochora again but so often in life I find it's best not to return lest reality proves so far from memory
Having both finished work now it means mostly a 24/7 relationship
How are you both faring?
Wouldn't you think Greek politicians would have more to do than bring in new olive oil regulations?
Surely diners with any taste buds would soon boycott restaurants with counterfeit olive oil !
I never did have the drink I promised myself on the Ostraco balcony :( ... but we did have that lovely "misguided" tour via the Grape press cafe :)                                                     
Those were happy days and I wouldn't have missed them for the world
Love to you both
