Last night we arrived in Xiropigado where we've rented a little house right on the sea, just down the coast from Náfplio.

We have an idyllic spot from which to gaze out on the the famous wine dark sea. The house itself is charming.

It is our grandchildren's school holidays. Emily asked over a year ago if we could watch them during this time, as she and Jos are working on a show together. I began to hatch a plan to take them with us to Greece where presumably it would be a bit warmer and there would be more fun activites to keep us busy. Quinn is a history buff, and they both love the beach, so it seemed an excellent plan.

The house has its own private beach which you sramble down to via a rocky path.

Although the weather so far isn't glorious, when you're in Greece who cares?
