After a great night's sleep and a Jacuzzi that lasts for more than an hour I am ready for breakfast. I am already delayed and by the time I open the door I find a vase with some beautiful pink roses accompanied by a card. What a nice gesture and treat to start a beautiful day!
Breakfast is a feast here just as I expected it. There are all sorts of goodies for every taste! I have the chance if I prefer to sit outside in the beautiful tropical gardens but I decide to get a seat inside as it is cool and beautiful here. The place is huge, and it is as if there are several rooms in one with many columns. There is a wall at the back with running water coming from the very top down to the floor, the central buffet has 3 huge elephant tusks and it is so beautifully decorated with the different dishes
Ok, time for breakfast and of course what I am after is a nice savory omelette fresh salmon, mushrooms, some fresh orange juice and a strong coffee. All these will do. I need nothing else and I don’t touch any cakes, shortbreads or biscuits no matter how wonderful or tasty they are. Of course I love cheese and there are so many different kinds to choose from….but the calories always count. I get one or two small pieces without feeling guilty at all because I will be out walking the whole morning until lunch time.
My plans are to walk to the opposite direction this time away from the city. I am taking the beach path and I will try to get even further than the ruins of Amathounta. A lovely morning, no work or meetings, and I plan to enjoy it
Never have I walked on this direction before and of course I wear a hat and my sun glasses, I carry a bottle of cold water along and I wear protective sun lotion so surely I have taken the necessary precautions. The stroll is pleasant and quite interesting and there are many other people doing just the same. When I come to the marina after about 4 or 5 Km, I decide to go no further because I want to swim before lunch so I need to be back on time.
By the time I return there are many vacant seats. It seems that guests have gone for their lunch. It is pity that I don’t have time to rest at all not even enjoy a few minutes under the shade of my umbrella. I get in the water without losing more time and swim for an hour enjoying the beautiful coast and the crystal water. Here again I chat with lots of other guests, most of them are repeaters and I envy them. They speak highly of the hotel and we exchange views and share tips. I hate the fact that I have to leave the beach and get to the restaurant. In reality I am not really hungry and I can do without lunch till evening, but I am curious to see what the buffet is like today. As I walk by the beach bar I stop to say hi to the guys there who offer me a huge glass of refreshing fruit cocktail. It is really what I needed the right moment.
