More October 30 - 31

I finally talked Stanley into the buggy ride. The horse is Steven. Off we went.

Steven had to stop for a snack.

Another snack.

And back to the starting point. That's Rosita, our carriage driver. I don't know what happened to the picture, but she was so sweet I couldn't leave it out.
We decided to take a short cut back to our hotel. I believe it had something to do with the search for draft beer.

There are still many examples of World War II destruction

The draft beer place was closed so we found ourselves back at our favorite taverna on the waterfront.
A little music.

Posing for the camera.

We first spotted this guy fishing when we came back to the hotel for the nap. He was still at it.

A fish at last. Not much to brag about.

Just the day before I was telling Stanley it would be great fun to have a remote control helicopter to fly over the harbor. There it was, the toy of my dreams, sitting on the table.

The owner was a real pro. He could make it hover over the table,

Swoop into the air,

And land it with total presision. 
Before I could make a deal to buy the toy, Sue and Gordon arrived. What luck that we all ended up in Chania for our last night in Greece.

What luck that we met them in Sfakia. They added a whole dimension to our trip.

We had a gorgeous sunset over the harbor.

And then off to dinner at The Well of the Turk.
My pictures of the food were way too dark, but I have the vision of that salad firmly in my mind.

We would see them the next morning at the airport, but this was the real farewell. Hope our travel paths meet again.

Back to the hotel. Early morning rise and shine tomorrow.

Friday morning we were on the plane back to Paris!
