Lightening our load

We thought our backpacks were as light as possible, but now that we are in the Mediterranean, we realize we don’t need about ten pounds of jackets, sweaters and misc stuff that seemed essential in London ( where we already left about ten pounds!).
Shipped a box back to London to wait for our arrival at end of August. Best $50 we could have spent!
(It beats the donkey luggage service!)

Hydra – continued

Blissful day. Perfect weather. Amazing beach side taverna and not crowded at all. Water was cold but not as cold as Tahoe and after a bit we got used to it. We swam and sunned and ate and drank tea and mango juice. Met a Greek family from New Jersey who bought a house here. I can understand why!
A shower, a siesta and then dinner under the arbor downstairs.
