We then headed towards the westside of Chania where we haven't really visited yet. This is the area that the locals go to to enjoy the beach during the summer. Guess it gets pretty busy, but today it is very windy and the waves are huge! Not a soul in the water LOL!! A few restaurants are open, and Vivian had said these are good ones to have a fish dinner at - not expensive like the ones surrounding Chania Harbour. We'll have to come back another time and stop in for lunch.
|Big waves today|
|The waves crash on the rocks and go right over the top|
|Small harbour before the beach area|
|Lights in the marina are attached to old doors - pretty cool idea|
|This fisherman won't be going out today!|
|That weird boat with the round windows reminds me of the movie 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. A movie I saw back in elementary and scared the heck out of me! Think it was the HUGE OCTOPUS!|
|Guess they wont be back until next spring!|
|Big waves have come up and deposited sand onto the road|
|This tree wont give up1|
We sit beside a lady on the bus bench. She smiles and is busy enjoying an orange. She then hands us each an orange to enjoy :) Then gives us another two, which I put into my backpack for later. When her bus arrives she leaves and says 'bye bye'. People here are very nice :) Our bus arrived about 5 mins later.
We get off at the nearest stop to our place and walk the 2kms back. We get home just after 4:30 and the ice cream is still hard! LOL!! Yeah! we have found another place to buy ice cream :) Plus we walked a total of 8km today - so having some ice cream for a treat is OK :)
|I cant believe how many oranges are wasted here! Do they know how much that many mandarin oranges would cost in Canada??|
After doing all that work I probably have about 8oz of shrimp left to cook up for dinner. Really just enough for 1 one persons (me anyways :). I brown some butter and sliced garlic for awhile before tossing in the shrimp. Strange that once the shrimp cook these ones stay white instead of the usual pink I'm use to seeing. But they taste just as good :) Might have to buy some BIG ones next time we are at the market and have a good feast one night.
Today before we headed out to Souda I decided to make some cookies :) Christmas baking LOL!! I bought some toffee chips yesterday and other cookie ingredients incase I wanted to do so baking :) But measuring is hard since I have no measuring spoons or cups. Need to change cups to gms since I do have a food weigh scale. But I think I screwed up a bit on the salt since the cookies were a little to salty :0
|That little capsule has vanilla flavouring in it! Think this was the first time since grade 7 that I had to mix everything with a wooden spoon!! No beaters in this kitchen|
And of course our walk is never complete without a stop for a coffee and treat :)
|Dwayne's HUGE donut and my petite chocolate covered croissant with vanilla filling - and freddo cappuccino :) ALL so yummy!|
|Christmas decorations at the cafe/bakery|
|The roots of this tree just ooze over the curb like lava|
|Found a beautiful rose on our walk home|
|Yes I picked the rose plus some wild nasturtium flowers for the table|
|Max is so funny, Dwayne works on the single bed he uses as a couch, and Max has to sit on his legs!|
Now I don't want to hear about anyone going outside today singing "Baby Its Cold Outside" LOL!! Enjoy your weekend :)
