Good to hear from Lynne that the beaches have been re-sanded,they were getting a bit scruffy in places last year but that didn't stop us spending lots of time on them. The sunbeds & umbrellas were all out from May the last two years but no beach attendants until 1st June from which time they started collecting money for the use of the beds & umbrellas and the beach was kept tidy from then on.
We had the added bonus of free beds for several days the last 2 years and were quite happy to clear away any rubbish left by other users and one day a couple of teachers & a party of schoolchildren came on to the beaches armed with plastic bags to clear any debris which shows how proud they are of their village. It seems a bit odd not to employ beach attendants during May because the beach was quite busy and money collected for use of beds & umbrellas would have exceeded the cost of employing a couple of attendants but was obviously due to cutbacks.
It's good to hear from Lynne that everything is gearing up for the season and enjoy reading her posts for local news & gossip. We were sorry to hear that Angelika & her husband have sold Camelot because we always enjoyed calling in for lunch or a frappe and a chat over the years but realised that things were getting difficult over the last few years,not nearly as busy. Sounds like the place is in good hands from reading an earlier post of Lynne's and wonder what they're doing now.
Not too long now before we're back in Elounda again. Can't wait!!
