Come On… Could YOU Resist Faces Like These?

We’ve  just arrived back in Platania after having been out since very early this morning on our long drive up the coast.

Everyone is tired and looking for an early night, but first our stomachs are rumbling and it’s time to turn our attention to quelling the hunger pangs.

Logic says that we should cook the pasta that Himself thought he would indulge in back at our rented accommodation, but Himself  and I look at each other and each confess to feeling too tired and lazy to cook, let alone wash up afterwards and quick agreement is reached that we should revisit Spiro’s restaurant, where we had eaten previously with out in-laws when the meal had been Oma’s treat.

Within a few minutes the car is parked on the beach front by the restaurant and Himself is sipping the little shot-sized glass of complimentary Ouzo that is customary before each meal here.  Himself also gets to polish off my glass too because alcohol is a big no no with my strong pain medication. We order the favourites discovered on our previous visit and are so hungry that the salad gets a good deal polished off before I remember to take a photograph. If we had needed any recommendation as to the quality of the food, we had it in the form of two young cats who joined us and made it more than clear that they would be happy to help out with the eating.

Their big eyes tried to bore the message into our brains, they were patient and after a while their patience was rewarded, I mean who could resist faces like these? The last of the daylight was about to disappear as I took the photographs and it was well and truly dark once we finished. Himself drove us back to the holiday house and I think that we were all probably all asleep minutes after our heads hit the pillows. It had been a long day but wow… an excellent one.

    • Carrie,
      Greek cats everywhere were begging for adoption… but short of that they would happily settle for our dinner if we arranged that instead.
