The villas are closing for the winte, we are cleaning the gardens and the birds are enjoying peacefully the last pools with water. Sunrise or Sunset, the colors are amazing and during the day, the sea is adorned with shiny silver reflections.
In Sivota Bay, the seasonnal boats left, just staying the fish boats leaving quietly every morning looking for the catch of the day.

This morning we had a lovely surprise at 7:00 in the morning. We could see the dolphins for 1/2 hour from the terraces of the creek villas. Sometimes they can also be seen in the late afternoon. It's always a pleasure .. we thank them :)

In Greece Easter is the most important celebration. Happy Easter in greek is Kalo Paska.
The religious ceremony commemorating the Christ resurrection take place in Greece on Saturday night before Easter.
The faithful people are going to the church with an unlit candle in their hand . The church is plunged into darkness, a symbol of Christ's tomb .
When the 12th stroke of midnight hits, announcing the birth of a new day , the priest appears wearing the altar , carrying a lighted candle , and sings a hymn. The faithful pass the fire by lighting their candles one after the other and the church lights .
Then the faithful are spreading at the end of the ceremony and go home with their lighted candle, bless the entrance of their home and try to keep the flame burning in oil for months .
It is finally time to enjoy the feast prepared by the home hostess , often this meal is a hearty soup called soup Mayeritza made of the paschal lamb's offal .
For dessert, they enjoyed the "brioche" called : tsoureki .
The eggs ritual can begin
The red color symbolizes the Christ's blood.
The duels are two by two, the winner being the one who manages to keep an intact egg. Each participant is attempting to break the opponent's egg by striking with his own egg. Striking his opponent egg each one pronounce this sentence " Christos Anesti " . The art of this game is to play with the weakness points of the eggs.
The winner is the one who manages to keep his egg intact. At the end of duels, winners and losers eat all the eggs together!
The next day, men will wake up early to cook the paschal lamb on the spit.
