    Gone Away

    Hi Everyone
    I'm off - it's our annual trip to Crete. We are going back to:

    Last year's trip to Crete

    I hope you have a fun couple of weeks, by the time we get back there will be new cameras from Sony, Canon, Panasonic and lots of others, and if I'm lucky and none of my clients have forced me into an internet cafe, I'll be blissfully ignorant.

    We are going to Loutro, which is about 5 miles to the west of Sfakia on the south coast of Crete - the only way to get their is by boat (the White Mountains come right down to the sea). Most of our time is likely to be spent on Sweetwater Beach



    There is one boat a day, which is run by the Theo, who also runs the restaurant you can see in the foreground.

    Camera gear?

    Olympus E3
    Zuiko 7-14
    Zuiko 12-60
    Zuiko 70-300

    +Ricoh GX100

    Which gives me a neat range from 14-600mm equivalent in a small and weather(dust) proof package.

    This is where we'll be staying:




    and this is the nearest town Loutro itself



    All the best to everyone - I'll check back in on our return!

    Just this guy you know

    Ohmigod . . .actually, I think the Ricoh will keep me covered

    Normal day is . . .
    up at 6, walk to anopoli for breakfast (that's 2200ft above sea level),
    back down to the beach for 11 - read for a couple of hours before lunch

    . . . . . then the day disintegrates!!

    Gosh, such structure and discipline!
    When on vacation, every morning when I wake up and shake off the night before, I immediately disintegrate without delay.

    hi Bob
    In your honour we are having a bottle of Pinot Grigio with gravadlax for our breakfast at 8.30 in the airport. Does that sound better!
