Well, we're back - did you miss me?!
Family Urbani had a wonderful week in Corfu
with Grant's parents, John and Barbara.
We stayed in a small fishing village to the north
of the island, called Roda,
which has a lovely family atmosphere,
with no noisy nightclubs :)
There was LOTS of sunshine,
|(The Sparkling Urbani gals: me, Hope and Barbara)|
The family run hotel was small and perfectly
formed, and had a lovely pool to cool off in.
Hope and I shared a room and had some great
girlie giggles, while Luke and Grant were
'the odd couple' along the corridor.
By the end of the week Luke wanted
to smother his loudly snoring father.
Welcome to my world, son!
|(the pool **sigh**)|
During the day we enjoyed relaxing,
reading, snoozing and playing in the pool.
|(Are you impressed by Luke's bulging biceps?!)|
It was the end of the holiday season
so we had plenty of space in and
around the pool.
The temperature hovered between
80 and 90 degrees, phew!
|(Hope is half mermaid)|
There were lots of beautiful dragonflies.
Unfortunately there were also a lot of
wasps and Barbara was stung, ouch :(
There were also the biggest hornets
I have ever seen.
I put on a swimming cozzie
and that was rather scary too!
I ate and drank far too much over the week,
and went to many different restaurants.
My favourite was a fish restaurant, with fish
on the menu caught that same morning.

In the Mexican restaurant we were
serenaded by some wandering musicians,
and the restaurant whipped out some
sombreros for this 'spontaneous' event.
|(John was clearly having a wonderful time!)|
One evening we ventured into the hills to eat
at an authentic Roda restaurant -
the locals found us quite entertaining, I think!
|(Why is Hope pulling that horror movie face?!)|
The sea was very shallow and we enjoyed
walking along the beach to a beautifully
situated beach bar.
|(Hope photo bombed by what appears to be a shark attack|
but is, in fact, Grant and Luke splashing about)
|(Luke laughing at his Dad, who clearly thinks he is in CSI Corfu)|
This holiday was all about relaxing
with family and simply enjoying their company,
and making the most of some breathing space
from life in a very beautiful part of the world.
It's going to take me a few days to catch up
with all of your news in your blogs,
but I'll catch up with you as soon as I can.
Thanks for reading!
