We had such glorious hot weather that we replaced the walks with swims. Really refreshing! Beaches to ourselves and some skinny dipping! Our Easter meal at taverna ‘Limanaki’ was a great success with kid roasted in the oven the traditional Sikia way with rice soaking up the meat juices, mingling with various herbs. There were nine of us sitting in the sun on the beach. The horse race took place on May 7th, as predicted the Tuesday after Easter. Although it was windy, it was a clear sunny day and there was a good turn out of horses and spectators. And no broken bones this year. I do wish they’s wear helmets, but Sikia doesn’t get its nickname Texas for nothing! So I post you a few photos of the riders and good to see there were a few more girls this year.
