Corfu - Day 6

Another morning, another beautiful sunrise!




Today is our last full day in Corfu.  We went on a tour of the island with 2 drivers, Spiros and Mike.  We started off by driving to two viewing points on the East side of the island.  Lovely views.








We then drove to The Golden Fox at Lakones - what an incredible view!






We enjoyed some baklava and kumquat cake at the restaurant.





Next stop was George's wine cellar - where we got to sample some lovely traditional Greek specialities - homemade bread with olive oil, feta, incredible tomatoes and fresh basil, olives with various flavours, kumquat preserves and some of George's red wine.  It was so delicious!  A really charming place.  We bought some goodies to bring home.





Then it was off to Paleokastritsa beach, passing La Grotta cove, where some parts of the James Bond movie "For Your Eyes Only" was filmed.  We had a short stop at Paleokastritsa (try to say that when you've had a few!!)




Finally we made our way to the Donkey Sanctuary where we had a short tour and got to brush a couple of donkeys.










Then it was time to head for home and start the unenviable task of packing....

This evening Sotos and his wife, Lela, picked us up and took us to Corfu town for the evening.  They dropped us off in "old town" and we had a lovely wander through the town.





We found a little restaurant where we had a delicious supper.  After that we wandered some more, finding some lovely shops along the way.  We made our way to the Liston - the main square in Corfu town and strolled across to the small garden with monuments to the Durrell brothers.

Then it was time for Sotos and Lela to pick us up and take us back to Barbati.  They have been so incredibly kind to us.  We had a lovely last evening in Corfu.

I have just fallen in love with Corfu, I feel so at home here.
