It was my last evening in Greece. I felt sad both to be returning to Britain and because of the reason that I was returning early. having been blown out on my hot date with the amazing woman, I drove from the abandoned monastery not back to the hovel but to the village one last time for supper. Having problems parking in the Centre of kambos I continued on the main road out of the village seeking a place to turn.

As one leaves the village you start to climb the base of a hill on whose top stands the Frankish castle of Zarnata. As the road heads round a bend there is a parking and turning spot where I stopped the motor. Looking back below us is a ruined tower house which sits just above the Mycenaean tombs, the real hidden gems of Kambos. Behind them lies the village and on a clear day from this spot you can even see the hovel in the very far distance.

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.
