Before the humans.....

Another nice early run on the beach before you humans get here and mess it up leaving all your rubbish!  What annoys me is that it's us canines that get banned from the beaches in the summer......

Well the cheek of it !  There I am early in the morning, off as normal for my beach run-a-bout and someone has the audacity to invade my privacy by camping next to my beach !

I soon got them out of bed with a few very loud barks.....

Late up....

Well I allowed the Guv a bit longer in bed this morning so after his breakfast it was 8am before we got to the beach!  On the way we passed the lady that exercises her horses each morning, but I was more interested in the three canines she has running with her.  I must get the Guv to photograph them....

I had a good look today at the beach bar that has been rebuilt, not a bad job either, I think the Guv will be trying it out..........

Its a dog's life

As I said, same old routine....up early in the morning, get my fur brushed then off to the beach with my people.  Back home, get fed then a lazy day in the sun on the balcony whilst the Guv does the work!   Gee...who would have a dog's life?

We go back home

Well my holiday in Zakynthos was soon over and we were on our way back to my home in the Peloponnese.  Back to my early morning beach walks on the same old beaches, visits in the sun to the same old tavernas.......Oh well I guess I'll suffer that !!

Sorry did we interrupt you?

These are two photos the Guv took of a bay near Volimos, we drove all the way down but unlike last time my people visited they did not go on the small boat that takes humans to see the Blue Cave. Good job to, as I would had to have stayed in the poppymobile and it was far too hot!

After that we drove to this taverna next to the big cross for them to have refreshments, huh some hope as the staff only just managed to make them coffee.....guess we interrupted their morning!   Apparently many years ago the property was the home of a priest, may be he would have been more welcoming.....

Ησυχαστήριο της Ελευθερώτριας στην περιοχή Λαγοπόδο Ζακύνθου

I thought today I would show you some photos of one of the churches on the island of Zakynthos that my people and I went to visit. 
This one is Ησυχαστήριο της Ελευθερώτριας στην περιοχή Λαγοπόδο Ζακύνθου

Now in English that would be 
Hermitage Eleftherotria in Lagopodo Zakynthos
(I think)......

Oh yes, and one of the Misses outside in the courtyard

Photo call....

click on photos to enlarge

Today I thought I would show you some of the other places my people took me to.  The Guv (and the Misses) took quite a lot of photographs, but some do not have me in them !  Now whilst I know they will not be as interesting to you, I guess I had better post them in my blog, because if I don't the Guv will get upset.  (Mind you he's no David Bailey !)

I found a friend.

Porto Keri was another nice beach area the Guv took us to. In fact my people went there twice for lunch,...... me well I got to meet this rather nice Greek canine.

No mice in this windmill.....

On one of our outings in the poppymobile the Guv drove to this windmill thing at a place called Skinari.  Not really much I can say about it apart from the fact it went round and around, and was quite old, probably even older than the Guv !

I thought I should have my photo taken here though, mind you the 
Misses somehow got in the picture !

Life's a beach !

Like I said not a bad bit of beach around here and not just sand but lots of 
grass and a big field for me to enjoy also.....

Could I make money here?

click photos to enlarge

As I said yesterday where we were staying was only a few doggy steps from the beach front.  Now in our garden there was this kennel like thing, I wonder if I could open a "περίπτερο" (little kiosk for my English speaking friends) and earn a bit of money ?

Friday, 15 May 2015

We're staying here....

After my people had finished their lunch it was off to where the Guv had planned we spend our next 6 days.  I was very pleased when we arrived to see the Guv had thought about me also, as he had arranged a place with a garden for me to run around in with my very own play kennel !

Also it was only 50 doggy steps to the beach....I'll show you all those photographs over the next few days......

All they do is eat !

So we travel to Kylini, an hour on the ferry boat and when we get off what goes the Guv do?  Does he take me to the beach for a run-a-bout...NO.  Does he take me to the accommodation he has booked so I can sleep....NO, He goes to a human eating place an orders lunch for the Misses and himself!

I got nothing !!!!

Ferry nice.......

I promised some more photographs of the Kylini to Zakynthos ferry on my blog yesterday, so here they are.  The Guv said he was very impressed just how well looked after the ferry was, nice and clean and what is more the price of a cup of coffee was cheaper than on the square in Kalamata !

Mind you I think he wanted to take home the Volkswagon camper they had as a display feature, but they would not let him.......

Big "H" (and not the Guv!)

click photo to enlarge

So as I said yesterday I got to go with my people in the "poppymobile" on holiday and after a short drive we boarded this ferry.  At first I thought the Guv had bought it as it had a big "H" on it !!

A short 1 hour crossing (far better than the hours I have to cope with when we go to Italy), and we were in Zakynthos.  I'll show you some more photos of the ferry tomorrow......very smart I must say!

I'm going as well....

As normal the Guv got up early this morning and had his breakfast, but what was different to a normal morning was that suit cases were being packed.  Now that means that they're off travelling again.  I kept a very close watch on my bed and food boxes I can tell you......and yes they got packed also.  That means I'm going on holiday as well.  So I might be "missing" from my blog for a bit, that is unless the Guv is not watching and I get hold of the laptop !

Birthday cake.....

Now as you know I never eat cake, however on this occasion I am going 
to make an exception

Its the Guv's birthday !

Friday, 8 May 2015

Very Conservative

The Guv said I had to !

Thursday, 7 May 2015

Nearly got "tyred"

The Guv yesterday found out the "poppymobile" had suffered a "thorn in its paw!", and as a result one of the tyres had a very flat bottom.  That meant today a trip to the tyre fixing man.  I had a good old sniff around the garage that in fact smelt very rubbery!  Now I know some humans have their canines running and jumping through these tyres.......let me tell you the Guv got no hope of me ever doing that!

I sorted them !

click on photos to enlarge

Well after the beach run this morning the Misses had to go to the human tooth doctor in Kalamata.  Now last time the Guv sat in a cafe there I heard he got annoyed as he was pestered by gypsies and sales people, so I thought I'd go along and sort them out for him!

Me being here gave a whole new meaning for "Why not stop for a bite ! "

Smile, it's sunny....

click on photo to enlarge

I've been rather quiet the last few days, mainly because there was not a lot to tell you.  Days have become sunny and as normal each morning I get taken for my beach run-a-bout.  So this morning I had the Guv take a photo of me sitting in the back of the "poppymobile" at Risomylos beach to share with you 
...well he did say SMILE !
