We're home, safe and sound, after a wonderful time on the beautiful island of Skiathos. Always nice to get back into your own bed though, wouldn't you agree?
I'm not going to bore you with loads of holiday snaps, but thought I'd share some images of this fantastic beach - Kastro - on the north of the island. To be honest it was a bit of a nightmare to get to, both in the car on the dusty lanes, and then on foot, down the steep cliffpath.
But my goodness, it was worth it!
The water was the clearest I've ever seen, and because it was not easily accessible we had the beach almost to ourselves!
I wouldn't mind a beach cafe like this!
Just my kind of rustic furniture... primitive tables made from old pallets...
And check out this cool bench! Might pinch this idea for our house!
But the main reason I loved Kastro so much? Look at all this driftwood!
There was literally a lifetime's supply here!
And you could swim around the shallow pools and find another great pile - I've never swam for driftwood before - it was just amazing!
It almost made me weep though, as naturally I had to leave it all behind!
Well, almost all! I managed to pack a few bits in my suitcase!
They will become boats very soon, I'll show you the finished products when they're done.
We also found loads of these floats (not sure what to use them for yet, but might make a decoration for our new bathroom - any suggestions welcome!)
It was pitch black when we returned on Friday night, we got a bit of a shock when we looked at the garden for the first time in 2 weeks - it's grown quite a bit since we left!
There's really no place like home!
