A Day in the Forest

After a minor repair, we took the beast on a

the other day. It took us about 40 minutes in the car and a lot of "Zhaina, just look out the window." and "Zhaina, talk to your kangaroo." but finally we made it to

Manolates the Forest.

After a short hike we poked our way around and through a couple of restored Greek traditional homes complete with outdoor summer kitchens, hearths and all.

We explored the forest and wondered aloud if we might find the smurfs, but instead settled for a tiny creek and local cats that insisted on following us everywhere. Zhaina was a huge fan of the forest, once exclaiming, "MaMa, this place sure is wonderful!" Melissa, not so much. And when Melissa couldn't stand being in the forest for another minute we hopped back in the beast and drove to the nearest

sweets shop

for a snack, which immediately boosted her spirits.
