more on Thassos….

By Alice on Friday May 28th 2010 at 09:00

On the second day we found another deserted beach in the morning…

image

- and then a more commercial version in the afternoon…which was amazing and had REALLY great bean bag loungers! And we still had the place pretty much to ourselves!

a lovely holiday in Thassos…

By Alice on Thursday May 27th 2010 at 13:40

Mark and I escaped to Thassos for a week and it was LOTS of fun…apparantly our flight was the last one to go before another load of cancellations…

image
- so we were v. lucky (although we had to set off at 3:30am to get our flight)!

We got a ferry over from the mainland to Thassos island and were accompanied by many hungry seagulls and some very strong winds…

image

The island is the most northerly and is called the emereld isle as it’s so green all year round - covered with olive trees lower down and pine trees on the higher ground…and is famous for white marble and honey…

2 now, not 3

yum - I LOVE shredded wheat! remember how there always used to be 3 in a pack and you felt obliged to eat them all - well now they are packaged in a pair = no problem!!

image

- - skips are another great food memory… try some - they’re still just as yummy!

pick me up

By Alice on Friday May 07th 2010 at 10:11

On Tuesday, Mark and I braved it through the bank holiday Monday traffic (which was particularly bad at one roundabout, which we sat at for over an hour!!) to go to London to see the Pick me up show - we ate sweets along the way - these starburst smoothies are yummy!

Jemima and I went to Badminton Horse Trials with Allie on Sunday. It was all cold and rainy and windy in the morning - but we thought we’d brave it - and it did clear up a bit in the afternoon! But it was VERY muddy!
