After a good nights sleep in a cool bedroom we got up and were having a cup of tea sat on our terrace listening to one of the music stations on the TV when suddenly it went quite. The TV and all the other appliances did not work but strangely most of the lights did. After checking with reception we were told it was a power cut and that the lights were on an emergency circuit. The power was not off for long and after we’d finished reading we went to the pool and read and dozed. At one time the pool was empty and we played volley ball must have looked strange seeing a couple of people in their 50’s acting like kids. When we had finished more people got in to play their ball games When it go too hot we decided to go back to the room where the air conditioning had been on to cool down and relax. On the way back we popped into the supermarket where we bought all we needed for our ham, cheese, tomato and onion rolls for lunch. I think the sun and heat had drained us as we both fell asleep on the lounge beds. When we woke up we watched The Kingdom DVD. I thought we were going to go out for dinner so I had a coke and Sue had a B & Coke but as the film went on we would not have been out until later after showering and getting ready so we decided to eat by the pool again so I joined Sue and had a B & Coke too. I enjoyed my starters of creamed mushrooms and Sue had garlic bread with melted cheese. For main course I had stifado chips & salad Sue had Greek omelette, chips & salad.

It was Magician night again, and as there seemed to be more people this week in the resort, we spotted him at a table behind us performing his card tricks for a couple. We had decided last ==Monday== whilst we waited for the performance that it was an old fat guy who was sitting in the restaurant area but as it turned out it was a young guy & then 2 of them. We decided not to bother to wait for a personal performance, as it was too noisy and too hot, also we had not covered ourselves with anti mozzie cream. So it was back to the room for a fairly early night.
