So there I was in the middle of the Mediterranean. I had seen the sunrise on the beach (It is all Greek to me 1), and I was signed up for two weeks sun & snorkeling with friends in Zante, Greece.
We were staying in Hotel Denny’s Inn, which was a great Hotel, with a nice restaurant, lovely bar, fantastic staff, but most importantly an awesome pool.
The pool was essential as temperatures were rising to 35C in the shade. It was suggested ‘in that case you should try and stay out of the shade’.
A cooling dip was needed on the hour every hour, and this pool even had a deep end (As demonstrated by Lewis here). You don’t see that in UK hotel pools much anymore.
I was amazed by these little birds that were always dipping in the water and pottering around us at the edge of the pool.
They had plans to eat the insects that had plans to eat me, so welcome pool buddies.
More nature and tourism together.
I also saw a lot of bats at night, unusually close to the sea, probably due to the unlimited mosquito food source.
Our party was a little less tranquil around the pool.
With the lads making the most of Denny’s Inn keeping the pool stocked up with inflatables.
Sharon and I took a shades on underwater selfie amidst the shenanigans.
It was a lovely pool and a good base for the rest of my Greece adventures, where I saw more wildlife than just the pool birds…
I have some more Zante posts to come, but basically it is all Greek to me, DimExcuses.
