Final days. I always find the ending of an overseas holiday bittersweet. On the one hand, I look forward to going back to the comforts of home and returning to my routine, but on the other, I'm sad that all of the wonderful times are ending - until next time that is.
Our last three nights sailing were spent anchored right by the village of Finikouda, which felt like home while we were there. Shortly after waking up I would - somewhat ungracefully - submerge myself in the water before motoring ashore for a combination of lying in the sun and cooling off in the warm waters whenever I got too hot. We were lucky that on our way back, a school of dolphins surrounded our boat, jumping in and out of the water as we sailed along. I don't think that I have ever seen dolphins so close before.
Aside from sailing, yesterday was spent travelling out to Olympia, quite fitting considering that the Olympic Games start this weekend. Today involved another venture to an ancient site, that of Arxaia Messini, quite possibly my favourite Greek ruin that I've been to. Still being excavated, there were a number of new things which had been uncovered since the last time I went. I doubt that there are many other ruins where you are walking over unearthed columns, and those that have been are easily accessible.
It would probably be unsurprising to most who know me, that I managed to have a couple of three-week old kittens as "pets" while in Valira. If only I could stay longer...
