Lamon didn't mind as long as you had snacks

I'm sure Kostas Chrysouilla wouldn't mind if buying drinks/food, they have so many different accomodations that they use, there are always 'strangers' coming and going!

Nearly all are favorites, but can concur with others that Sirocco is very good, but do try Ton Kzoni down the side street to KC, it's next to The Cozy Backyard.

Hi. I think the one at the camp site is ok to use if you use the bar, and they also used to do basic food. It is just on the main road as you leave town going east. It is only 2-3 min's walk.

Hotel Alianthos used to be OK with this if you used the little snack bar - I'm going back a while though! Still, doubt that it's changed.

Siroco (sure it used to be spelt with one 'r') back to its 'happy days'! Staff have a sense of humour too. Really like it. Lovely seafood

Most of the old favourites are still old favourites that haven't changed that much at all - suits me, that's why they're my old favourites!

My shopping list generally includes:

Gio Ma (favourite, just though, lots of competition!)

Manousos - now seems to have 'professional' staff serving, but I preferred unprofessional! Gave character.

Gorgona is the only one of the 'greenhouses' on the front I like, but I do like it a lot.

Aponema is great if you have a huge appetite, cooks with wood stacked at the side of the taverna.

Harakas now gone, shame, though it seemed to be a bit like Marmite in the feelings it evoked. I loved it, some certainly didn't though!

Cheers, Richard



8 weeks, 6 days to go, not counting, honest!

Anyone know a pool we can use if we buy drinks? Cheers

Plakias / Re: Crete and light-pollution

Certainly am! I'll take you up if I can.

There in late Apr to look at an apartment, and take telescope etc before nights are too light in the summer months.

There are new binoculars that would be ideal, I think, sort of super opera glasses, very small and light-weight, about 2x magnification but gather lots of light too. Sitting on a boat with these sounds lovely...

The best dark sky for star gazing is from a boat outside of Plakias, even going out Ĺ mile makes a big difference, virtually no light pollution, the only problem is you canít use a telescope for obvious reasons, but I go out a lot at night fishing and some days I donít know if to look down for the fish or up to the stars, the milky way and many constellations are nearly always on show, I can arrange boat trips for this if this is something anyone is interested in.
