|They look ok from a distance LOL!|
Found a cheap flight back to Edmonton on April 3rd. A bit early but not sure we can get 30 day extension and besides that April gets pretty hot and humid in Honduras. We over night in Houston and don't leave for Edmonton at 4:30pm so we can rent a car and tour around for the day if we want. Once we get back to Edmonton we can stay with my sister for a couple of weeks then head to warmer climes in Kelowna with our truck and trailer. As it turns out I got a message from our daughter today and she and her husband are going to Mexico in April and asked if we can babysit the boys - so that worked out well for them and fun for us :)
Tuesday - Wow we had quite the lightning and thunder storm last night. Most of the lightning was in the distance over the sea but lit up the sky pretty good! I got up and watched out of the window for awhile.
This morning the sky has cleared up - looks like it will be a good day. We forgot to buy bread yesterday so made us dutch pancakes for breakfast since I did just buy the nice maple flavoured syrup the other day.
|First add butter, icing sugar and then syrup|
|Roll up and add a little more syrup and icing sugar|
|I never have icing sugar around but when I bought these butter almond cookies they are covered with LOTS of icing sugar so just used the extra at the bottom of the container for our pancakes :)|
|Fluffy doesn't always make it easy for me when I'm trying to type my blog!|
|Bottom layers of phyllo put in and spinach feta cheese mix added|
|Score the top and ready to go into the little oven|
|And the finished product :)|
|This is the door in our bedroom and we don't have curtains|
|But we do have a metal shutter that we close at night and then in the morning the 2 kittens are scratching the metal to tell us it's time to let them in!|
We get into Chania around 10:45 and first head to a bank to get some more cash out, but the lineup was too long at the first one stopped at. So decided to head into the main Market and buy some cheese at the vendor we bought from a couple of weeks ago. We really liked the cheese and its difficult to figure out which of the cheeses are good. I suppose we could stop at one shop and try out a bunch but not many of the vendors speak English so it becomes a little difficult. While we are at the cheese shop we also get a supply of olives - black and large green ones. Great olives for greek salad :)
In the market there is a little display of pictures of the Agora going back quite a ways - but no years are noted. Just have to figure it out from the mode of travel used :)
|Horse and carriage era to go shopping at the Agora|

When we are finished shopping we head to a bus stop about a block away. Hopefully this is a stop where a bus will take us back downtown to the Agora. We get to the stop and I ask a young guy sitting there if the bus goes to the Agora? Yes. Great! Saves us walking back 4kms!! Plus now we will get back in time to have lunch at our favourite Gyro place and still catch the 2:00 back home :)
When we are travelling back to the Agora on the bus I see The Body Shop store - only a block from the Agora. So after getting off the bus we walk back up to the store. I'm hoping to find some nice vanilla body wash. But again I'm disappointed - nothing nice! There is peppermint - which I don't like, a Vanilla Marshmallow - not really nice and the other is a Candy cane - again not what I like. My FAVORITE is Noel Vanilla Bean shower gel but that is only available at the Bath and Body Works and ONLY at Christmas - hint hint 😍
A quick trip to our fav gyro restaurant for lunch and then off to our bus stop.
|I should have taken pictures of these trimmed trees this morning when we arrived at the Agora because they were HUGE Now it looks pretty barren!|
Well that ends another great day on Crete! 😍
