Jack Cruising through Greece


30 August 2017

Our last feast in Greece and we went big. Whole Seabass in a salt crust. It was quite a show how they presented it.
Cretian olive oil tour.
Post lunch coma. Sleeping beauties.
After a delicious lunch in Plaka, we headed over to an olive oil farm for a little olive oil tasting and even got an education on how it's made.
Our barrier to keep BA out of the pool while mommy & daddy enjoy being outside.
Baby not sleeping = daddy not sleeping = watching the sun come up.

After an exhausting day of eating, cruising and beach we decided to head into town for cocktails and a lovely dinner. Blake-Anne loved teething on the water bottle and her highchair was a little too big.
Then we hung by the beach and played in the sand.
Afternoon boat trip and beach visit.
We cruised around the Elounda Bay this afternoon. Took in the sights, swam a little and even did a little snorkeling.
Pool buddies
I thought the helipad was just for show. Or a joke. Nope - it's legit. Someone just arrived at the resort via chopper. #baller
Morning baby naps are the best!

We've made it to our amazing hotel, Domes of Elounda, in Crete. We were upgraded to a villa with a private pool!! Pretty sweet.

Blake-Anne decided she wanted to be a Greek goddess and wrapped herself in toilet paper.
On our walk back to the hotel from dinner at Kuzina. Beautiful view of the Acropolis and a cute little church that a modern hotel was built around.

Lunch in Athens
We're back on land. Touring around Athens and taking in the Acropolis from all different angles. Weird thing is I don't k IWALY if I should stop or go at green lights. They have a stop sign at traffic lights. So confusing.

Today we visited the incredible monasteries of Meteora. Absolutely breathtaking. The monasteries were built in the 13th & 14th century on top of giant rock pinnacles. Then we finished with a traditiinal Greek lunch of tzatziki, moussaka, pork, potatoes, eggplant and of course wine.
Cable cart ride.

Dinner in the Princess Grill. Jack and I had Duck à l'Orange and Amanda had a lamb shank. If you're counting; that's lamb 3 nights in a row. But then a little nugget decided she didn't want to sleep and joined us for dinner. Until mommy took her back to bed.
