It had been a while ...

... and it was so good to be back

Always a warm welcome from the team at Swell Bar, and it was like I had never been away ...


It was a very warm afternoon, and nothing had been left to chance. Friends had booked a table days in advance. I only confirmed myself, I was going a few hours before. You know how it is - Places to go, people to see, so little time.

Wandering the back way from town, and emerging onto the beach, walked in and immediately bumped into friends, who I had not seen for years. Also enjoying a lovely lunch of their own, Sheila and Ken (Fittest man on Skiathos) two of the 'original boomerangers' ...

Our table had the 'Mother of the Boomerang club' Mary - the lady who started it all off, years ago. Steve and Gina, and everyone was in good form.

You know when the waiter, knows how to look after his customers. Andreas putting a 'Mighty Alfa' in front of me 'Ice cold beer, in a glass frozen like a woman's heart' he said ...


Evaporating through the pores of the skin, as I surveyed the menu ...


Just what I needed, I had been 'sweating like Judith Chalmers at the airport, without her passport' after my walk up from town, wandering the back streets, in the heat of the day. That beer hit the spot perfectly as did another one later.

Our table had pasta with salmon, chicken arabic pitta, the farmers chicken, and the burger of all burgers, with a huge portion of chips to share.



You know when, after a lovely afternoon with friends, you feel like you just want it to go on and on. The ambiance of the Swell bar, Nick and the team all working hard to ensure a great time, is had by everyone.

Next time, I may just take Pinkygirl8's advice, and follow it up with a siesta in the garden ...
