Sanity? Who needs it ?

Thankfully, me and Lydia were rescued by Nikos and Elena from the building site we used to call home and whisked us off to the beach yesterday afternoon. So, instead of having to endure the sound of construction from four different projects (at latest count) and the completely unamusing musings of Mr Megaphone (imagine Alf Garnet meets Fidel Castro) we spent a few hours swimming on the beach at Sani.

I haven't been there for at last five years and I was pleasantly surprised by the makeover the place has had, walking around the marina and the immaculately kept grounds of the hotel you could easily imagine that you were in some swanky resort in the south of France.

Alas, today it's back to the sounds of the city. Like I said, sanity, who needs it?

Not fair. I'm also in a building site (hopefully finished in 1 hour) and will have to spend the afternoon cleaning up the dust and debris. Would *much* prefer to be at the beach. Enjoy anyway ;-)...

Thanks Ewan, It is great being just an hour's drive away from places like this. It almost makes up for Mr Megaphone.LOL

Sani's great, isn't it? Have you tried going to Bousoula? It's there somewhere! You have to pay to get in, but the beach is fantastic!

I really enjoyed Suni. I don't know about the other place, though. I object on principal to paying to go to a beach. There's sth seriously wrong about that.
