Corfu [Day Three]

Woke to the alarm at 0830 but slept in ’til 1000 – why not? Eggs and toast for breakfast again, a good way to start the day, in my opinion.

Made way to one of the beaches in Pelekas. Spent a few hours here, in and out of the sea to cool down as appropriate; the temperature must be ~35˚C today. Two stray dogs lounge around in the shade, their shaggy coats must be torturous.

Driving on the right is becoming more familiar, the issue is that there are no road markings; there are also little road signs to show right of way etc.

Retired to the apartment around 1400 to cool off, have lunch and chill out for a few hours. The tan is developing nicely, however, I have been bitten all over (this prompted a slight scare and subsequent Google search “is there malaria in Corfu”.

Approx. 1800, left for the Monastery of Paleokastritsa, a 25 minute, indeed very beautiful drive. Four euro for churro-esk fried batter balls with runny Nutella – amazing! The monastery was stunning and still operational, I believe.

Home by 2145. Card games, a tea and bed to follow.
