Olive Picking


Well its olive picking time again. Ian was helping some Greek friends to pick their olives last week. It is quite hard work, even with the machines.


This is a typical site in the olive groves right now. The nets are placed on the ground to catch all the olives as they are knocked off the branches. This picture shows them having a break to drink a little Raki.

When they were all working I took myself a little walk and left them to it.


These are two ruined windmills




This one has had a little bit of renovation.

The weather has been a bit changeable this week, the sun comes out and it’s quite hot, then it clouds over and the rain comes and when it rains it rains very heavy. Your drenched in no time. I know this very well, as the last two days when taking Lucky on her morning walk I have been caught about half way around and got absolutely soaked.

How is the weather treating you in your neck of the woods?
