Flag of Greece  , Crete,
Monday, April 16, 2012

This time we were up and at 'em as we didn't want to miss brekky. It was all the usual offenders plus yummy Greek yoghurt and honey.

Although we were to check out today we still had time though for round two of the Aussie vs Saffa Tennis Tournament, Mum will be pleased as again I flew the Aussie flag beating Gary 6-3!! So I am up 2 sets to love, shame for Gary, he was really talking this one up as well…There is still time for a comeback though as apparently we are playing in a "Men’s" Tournament so it is first to 3 sets. Fine with me.

We then shot off to our other hotel and met Big Dora, the lovely Greek receptionist. Big in stature and big in heart, checking in all went very well so much so it ended with a big warm hug and kiss from Dora!!



This hotel is very similar, there is a stunning view, nice pool etc. HOWEVER no tennis court…this means the Tournament will have to be postponed until Egypt. There is Ping Pong though so we will have to have round two of that.

As we were quite roasted from yesterday and the sun was burning down we stayed indoors for a bit doing admin etc. Our rather large dirty clothes bag came to mind so I asked Big Dora where we might do some laundry. Turns out apparently the closet one is in the town towards the beach and according to Big Dora “Must walk, only 20 minutes, yes yes you fine, go go”. Cool so off we set with the bag on our backs…at least 30 mins later (all downhill mind you and what goes up must come down…) we found the Laundromat – it was closed until May. Oh great, so about turn and back up we go. So after a good hard walk for over an hour we achieved nothing. Pretty sure that Big Dora has never walked this in her life, but there are no hard feelings it’s Big Dora.

We had a quiet dinner then watched a movie before bed. If the weather is not great in the morning we will check out some sights in the town.
