Photo article from the Greek Hovel - a swimming pool for Olaf starts to take shape

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.

Photo Articles from the Welsh Hovel - the floods recede slightly but rain and snow forecast for the weekend

In the end my sandbag defences were not tested but they stay up. As I write the water level is 9.236 metres, 13 cm below the 2000 high and 43 cm below the high last night. There is more rain and snow forecast for the weekend so the defences may yet be needed. But, as things stand, it is all quiet on the western front as you can see below.
