A week in Corfu with Jane’s sisters Marisa and Tracy with their other halves Chris and Kev. A visit to Paliokastritsa on their first full day so they could chill out and get a bit of sun.

A chance to see my skills with the snorkel and mono fin…………….

Not really sure that I have got the hang of this……………

After the exertions of the day a cocktail with a view before the drive home, well except for me, I had a coffee!

Although that was still too much for some!!

On a slightly cloudy day, a drive down to the airport to see the planes was the order of the day……

A visit to the monastery …….

Was followed by a session of hat trying on and a cup of coffee. We certainly know how to have a good time !

We got a lovely view of Albania on our drive to Kassioppi.

The next sunny day took us to Kassioppi and another cup of coffee. Then off to the beach for a picnic.  What a beautiful place!  I did have a problem at one point however, I managed to get all 4 wheels of the Ferrari off the ground, not through excess speed though, but because the road was so steep and the angle so sharp the car ended up like a see-saw. We did manage to get free after a couple minutes (seemed like a life-time!) much to the relief of us all!

The beach was a bit busy for a picnic, but we managed to find a quiet spot !

Kev buys a bespoke hat from Agatha, but Tracy says no to the earrings!

I had an unsuccessful geocache hunt in this picturesque bay which had everyone wondering what the heck I was up to!

A swim in the pool was a must every day…….

And a swim in the sea was a bonus if the day went to plan

Chris did struggle with the finer points of using the sun beds, but luckily Jane was on hand to give him some help!

After having  such a wild time during the days, the only way we could keep the excitement levels up was by going down to Gouvea (the Las Vegas of Corfu) to see the Albanian Elvis. The show was actually very good but there were time when he reminded me more of Freddy Starr than Elvis Presley !!!!!!!

To keep the excitement up to fever pitch we had a celebrity BBQ chef flown in. My cousin  Adrian and his wife Ange popped over to see us, and stay in their villa.

I’m sure I said hot dogs for tea!!

And what a good chef he turned out to be……….. must be all those tips I have given him over the years !

The morning after the night before!

Ange turned out to be multi talented too, she can water the garden and drink a beer a the same time!

Well what can I say……. captions please!

Marisa and Chris prepared us all a lovely meal, and being very organised (unlike me) they also did most of the washing up!

The next morning after all the hard work has been done , time for a leisurely breakfast in the sun.

Followed by a serious sunbathing session, now that Chris has got the hang of the sun bed!

And happily for us, we all love that Kev loves a nice slice of cake, which means we all get to sample his fine selections!
