Farewell to Malcolm ...

The island is a much quieter place tonight ...

Malcolm Rosemary, Dave and Sue have left the rock. The islands best party team, in ages have departed for home via Athens this afternoon. The birthday party to end all parties, came to a final stop this lunchtime at the Old Port Cafe - Over morning coffee ...

Appropriately they spent their final few hours, as they have most days this weeks - Frying in the late autumn sunshine.

They have done their best to re-float the island economy, this last week and I am sure many people will be missing them over the next few days. Perhaps a few will now close for winter as a result.

Its been a great week to be among friends here, topped by Margaret's excellent harvest of Olives and a mighty fine olive Oil as a result - Its a shame more do not try the autumn leap, and enjoy the fun ...

Tonight my lovely neighbour appeared on my doorstep, with a cake baked for me.


How lucky am I, and am now planning something to return on the plate, in the next few days ...
