I say start. Bad weather has hampered the workmen with the rains causing walls on the track above Slater slope on the way to the hovel to collapse so making them impassable for lorries and the excavator. But now the work is, as you can see, underway.
Six or seven olive trees have been moved carefully and the rains should help them to bed down at their new homes. And so work has started on what will be an infinity pool, one terrace below the hovel with views out towards Kambos. We aim to have all works finished by some time in May which means that daughter Olaf will agree to honour us with her presence this summer.
