Anezina Village Hotel in Drios, which I highly recommend (should you ever find yourself needing a vacation in Greece). When we got in the bungalow, I found this sign in the kitchen:
What?! Composting at a hotel? I was in love. Turns out they have their own gardens and grow all their own produce. Totally cool, not to mention delicious.
We visited before the tourist season really started, and for the first few days, it seemed like we had the island all to ourselves. The beach anyway.. It was very peaceful and relaxing.
We would spend a few hours at the beach (Costas windsurfing, George building sand castles, me-- quilting, of course!) each day and then after a nap, head to one of the small cities or towns to walk around.
I read Jennifer Chiaverini's Cross Country Quilters at the beginning of the trip and it put me in a good mood all week. It had been so long since I read a novel for fun, I forgot how captivating they could be. And then, bizarrely enough, it turned out that one of the women staying at our hotel was also a quilter, from Idaho! (Hi Colleen~) She noticed me piecing stars while watching George on the playground and we got to talking. It was fun to connect over quilts in the midst of a non-quilt-related vacation, hehe.
I want to sort through my photos and write another post about the quilting I did while I was there.. soon, I hope.
