A fantastic week........

DH and  I have just got back from spending a fab week on the Greek Island of Skiathos.  It was a last minute booking and we were not sure what to expect.  We were hoping for a week of sunshine, crystal clear waters, chilling around the pool, and evenings spent in a taverna with a glass of wine and some good food.  Our apartment below was ideally situated, the view from our balcony overlooking the beach, and the little boat in the distance that took us into the town. 

Relaxing in the evenings, these bean bag chairs are so chic........


We took this little boat every night into the town, and one evening we went to the open air cinema to watch Mamma Mia, which was partly filmed on the island.  A real cheesy film but quite an enjoyable experience in the open air, we sat on deck chairs drinking beer and eating popcorn.  Lots of folks got onto the stage at the end.
  The jetty where the little boat brought us back to our beach and apartment.


A rare photograph of me taken on my birthday, our last evening. A perfect end to the perfect week.  We could not have asked for more.
