After our day trip to Kavala last night we went in to town to watch the sunset from the harbour at the end of Potos beach. I have not watched the sunset since my first week in Greece, when I had brilliant views of the sunsets over Athens. The rest of my family, up until now, had yet to see one at all this holiday.

One observation: I am noticing the nights drawing in now. In Athens, the Sun dipped behind the mountain at precisely 21:01. At that point, I would get ready to go out to dinner. Here in Potos, a month and a half later, the Sun dips behind the mountain at 20:17. That’s nearly 45 minutes earlier.

I will get a big shock when I get back to the UK. Each year I find it is when we return home that I really notice the nights getting longer – and that’s after our normal two week holiday. This year I’m returning after 6 weeks out of the country!

In the evening we walked along to Pefkari (Πευκάρι) where we met up with Kosta from our hotel in the Pizza Top restaurant – opposite the Hotel Thassos – and shared two large pizzas together. We’ve never eaten there before – but if/when we come back to Thassos we certainly will do, as the pizzas were excellent.

It was nearly midnight by the time we left and took the 30 minute walk back in to the main village and to our hotel.

I’m off to the bakery now. Last full day on Thassos today.

Bye for now.
