We met a lovely couple called Pat and Marie who were in their seventies but were so sprightly it put us both to shame - They had an interesting story to tell in that they got married in their early twenties for ten years, and in Pat's own words he was a 'philanderer' , Marie divorced him and re-married . Pat also married again but she turned out to be even more of a philanderer than him (what goes around comes around..) She ran off with someone else. In the meantime Marie's second husband of ten years sadly died. Two years later there was a chance meeting between Pat and Marie, (possibly instrumented by Pat, methinks) Marie and Pat remarried and are still very happily together 15 years later. Aaaah, isn't that sweet?! but they really seemed absolutely perfect for each other and very much in love. They very kindly took us out for the day in their hired car and we saw some more beautiful places, Platania, being one, which was a big natural harbour with a lovely beach, we then went on to Lafkos which had a massive, typically Greek square next to the ancient church where the locals and a couple of priests were enjoying their normal pastime of sitting around drinking coffee.
It was a great holiday and even better that we could go away and everything was fine when we got back. Annette looked after everything in the office, with a bit of poultry and dog management, shared with Jay, whilst Dickie also did a fine job of looking after Greener Pastures and horses.
