Relax (day seven)

Another relaxing day today where nothing much was accomplished. With the wonderful breeze the views out to sea were amazing once again, you could see far and wide, it was stunning. Even cooler if you happened to spend some part of the afternoon in the spa looking out to sea.

For lunch today we headed back to the local restaurant Ouzeri’s, and after some great service and incredibly tasty meals, decided we’d come back for dinner too, for our last night in Fira. The waiters all seemed to remember us too; though I’m sure Sze Sze’s hair helped, they also referred to us as being from downunder. We’ve given multiple points of origin at different shops and restaurants when asked, so perhaps on our first night we said Australia!

Walking off lunch, I got a few more photos around town.

I did some macro photography too, with the amount of light available here it’s hard not to get the lens out of the bag, and there’s all that lavender to work with too, and bees pollinating it! Love taking photos of lavender.

Dinner was as sumptuous as lunch, with Sze Sze even ordering the same dish (mussels) as she liked it so much. Ultimately it seems local and less fancy is best. I’d like to also highlight the table mat that shows a map of the islands, pretty cool!

After dinner, we were invited for a cocktail at the cafe/bar as it was our last night. We hadn’t really spent any time up at the cafe at night, so it was nice to unwind close to the suite. Taking photos at night can be quite challenging though, so please don’t judge some of these too harshly. It really is wonderful in the evening here.

Before heading back to our suite we said our goodbyes to Lisa, who works at night and had some photos. You’ll probably see more from Penny, but he insisted on a photo shoot. Have I mentioned how amazing everyone has been? The service is amazing.
