I hope I'll be out in the garden still painting when I'm 90 years old!

Lefkes. After wandering through the picturesque narrow alleys of town we discovered a restaurant with outdoor tables sheltered from the sun in a little patio area. Unlike most restaurants in the USA, in Greece the staff seem happy to have guests stay for hours. After dining on a delicious meal of freshly baked bread, tzatziki, grilled Mackerel and Greek salad, Kathleen set up her computer (the restaurant had wi-fi) and set to work on her novel and I proceeded to draw and paint the view from our table. We stayed there 4-5 hours. With tourism down in Greece as a result of the disturbances in Athens, we were the only guests at the restaurant so had a chance to talk with the owner. It turns out he had had a successful career working for General Electric (GE) and in his retirement had returned to his home town to open and run a restaurant. He and his wife were delightful - good cooks, good hosts and genuinely nice people which made our brief encounter truly memorable.

There wasn't much to do when I was in Greece - as in working, shopping, partying, watching TV, etc. But there was a lot to do that I don't normally do - like spend hours looking at the clouds in the sky. I strongly recommend it!
