Hi, guys!!!! This is going to be a long blog with lots of fun stuff. There are going to be sad stuff like our beach restaurant is closing down!!!!!!!!! But the good thing is I leave the day before they close down for the winter. We leave tomorrow! We go to Athens and to some places in the middle of the country to see ruins and monasteries. Then we meet Daddy!!!! Then we meet G and Papa in Italy with Daddy!!!!
Great news! I met a friend. She is so fun. And her name is Sadie. She is from Canada and is also travelling with just her Mom. Her dad is in Nepal climbing Mt. Evereat. Sadie and I are going to be pen pals!!!!!!!!!!
Yesterday Sadie and her mom came to stay in our hotel!!!!! They were at a hotel next door. It is even more fun to have her at the room next to us. We give each other notes under our doors. Look, we are talking from porch to porch this morning!!!!
That is Sadies room and I am right next to her!!!!
So, let me tell you about my fun times.
The next photo you see is our hotel. That hotel has a great beach reataurant and everyone who works there is family and so great to us. The hotel is super fun. And the owner gave me a big blanket for my toys!!!!!! So nice. I would say she is like G!! Our hotel is small, but nice and clean. I am going to miss it here when I leave.
The waiter just gave me a gift!!! 123 let me open it.. look at that it is a good treat!!!! Ok, that roof above the restaurant is were the CATS go!!! And Sadie got the treat to. The CATS just sit around everywhere. They are all nice.
That is what our place looks like. The waiters and cooks are all family!!!! I see them siting down and talking and having fun a lot!! That is the view of the front of our hotel. It is on the side and the restaurant is in the front. We are right on the water. Our balcony is above the restaurant and looks at the water. Really pretty.
Now that you know where I’ve been staying, let’s go back and start at where we left off in my last blog. The Thompson’s visit and horse back riding!
Here are a few photos of the adventures I had with Sage and Piper!
At the Acropolis Museum, you stand above the ruins of the old city… We dance above it!
We stayed at a different place for the Thompson’s visit because ours was all filled up. The new hotel, Kalergis Studios, was awesome and right next door. Mommy and I just moved next door from our place to the new place, but we kept our old room so we only had to take a few things.
The symbol for pie is everywhere in Greece and mommy likes to take a picture of them all because I am born on 3/14 and we call Piper Pie. Pie in math means 3.14…..the number goes on and on. Cool.
This is the Venetian Castle! This was a castle built in the 13th century by a Venetian nobleman. It sits up high on the hill in Naxos. The castle is still owned by a family member!
When we went riding with Sage and Piper, I was lead by the man. But the next time I went, I rode all by myself. It was so fun!!!
Saying goodbye!!! Can you see how it was a little cold when they left? Now we are in swimsuits again!
I was sad to see them go and now tomorrow I will be on the blue Starferry leaving!
One of my favorite things I did was go to a concert at the Venetian Castle. I told you earlier that it was built in the 13th century by a famous and powerful man from Venice Italy. Before the guitar player starts, the man in the video is telling us how the walls were built and why the walls make the sound so great for the shows. The man is related to the people who built the castle in the 13th century and he lives in part of it. Lucky right. When we went on the tour, the lady that works there was sick and the owner was there so we were lucky to have him show us some special things. He is very happy and I like him.
This is the stage. It is in the cellar. When the weather isn’t windy, they have the shows in the castle courtyard. They have different shows every night!
The show was a heavy metal electric guitar player who played everything. Greek ballads, Beatles and even Cuban songs.
Here is a little of the guitar player.
And here is the owner explaining why Naxos is the best island in the Cyclades. I agree!
It’s the largest and most fertile too.
After Piper and Sage left, we had some cold weather, but it quickly got great again and I was back to the beach for school work at our hotel’s restaurant called Finikas.
This cat was meowing and meowing at the grocery store door. Mommy accidentally got too close to the door and it opened for the cat! She walked right in and nobody seemed to mind.
My new friend! Sadie! We play every day and sometimes go to dinner together. Her mom and my mom like each other too.
The waiter is our friend. He will play soccer with us and this is when he was getting us wet with his hose.
The sunsets right at our beach and we can see it from our balcony too. It is really pretty. I am looking for the green light flash every night. I haven’t seen it but Mommy and Piper did. Do you know what the green flash is? The curve of the earth makes the color green flash when the sun goes under. Only sometimes and only in some places. My Mommy said the Thompson’s Grandmother took a photo of it on their sailboat once. She said the picture is really great.
We went riding again! At a different place. They were great! I rode all by myself this time and trotted! We went on a 2 hour ride!
We went to a nice dinner and played with a Greek girl. Sadie makes friends with everyone!
Going to play on the beach for my last day. Bye!
