Kefalonia Holiday

I'm back! I had a great holiday in Kefalonia and could have stayed for another week. It was very hot every single day, I saw maybe 3 tiny little clouds that didn't stay for long, and the scenery when we got out and about was stunning. The resort was lovely and the food was gorgeous. Our resort was near Katelios, not far from Skala, right at the south end of the island.
This is me sunbathing by the pool.

A view over the pool and bar from the apartment block and below are two
photos of nearer the pool from the side of it

The next two photos are the view from the terrace of our apartment.
Persa's Taverna (below) is where we ate every night, the food was
absolutely beautiful, especially the Lamb Kleftika!

The next three photos are of Katelios beach. We walked down to here from the resort. It was a lovely walk going down to the village but it was uphill coming back and I was knackered by the time we got back to the resort. It was only about a mile each way, slightly less cos the signs were in kms which are slightly less. The sun was blazing hot and I got most of my sunburn that day. It's now peeling and itching like mad, as well as the mosquito bites. They were hungry little buggers and I'm covered in bites.

And finally, whaling is illegal in Kefalonia so I was able to get in the pool with no danger of being harpooned. I had to have this photo taken so that Craig and the kids believed that I'd been in the water. LOL. I was in the pool every single morning, doing about 20 lengths a day and I loved it. I had to be talked into taking my swimming costume in the first place and I'm really glad I did.

One day we got taxies into Skala and had a walk around the many gift shops that were there. There was a wedding going on, English people. It was weird seeing such a traditional thing but the men of the wedding party were wearing kilts. If they were being totally traditional I bet it was lovely and cool under them, more than can be said of the bride whose dress had about four layers in the skirt.
