A day spent in the cutest, smallest sailing club I’ve ever seen: Ναυτικό Όμιλος Μαύρο Λυθάρι where we meet 4.3 year old Giorgio and his folks Cornelia & Giorgio Snr. The kiddies met and agreed to play together when Kingsley began swimming around this sweet little boy who was frolicking in the shallows with his mum. Kingsley on his Speedo kick board (comes everywhere with us these days) and little Giorgio in his diving mask. Instant attraction!
For the next few hours they throw the Sponge Bob Square Pants ball, play rackets, dig, shoot water from water guns, irritate those on the little boat who cane that little too close to shore. Hours of fun till 5.
Of course I missed our bus back to Saronītha by 2 minutes so in my wisdom I rallied the child to walk all the way home. An hour on foot with a preschooler dragging his heels, whinging and pleading for a ‘stop, a sit-down, a bus please mumma!!‘ behind me I’ll not repeat. And that got me thinking – should we return to Disney we’ll definitely take the buggy.
