Sunday excursion into the Cretan mountains

My journal

Not that we hiked of roughed it up but we definitely chowed down like wolves.

It was a magical day with Penelope’s Godmother her soon to be hubby, Penelope herself and Anna.

We visited the Chania horse riding Club in Malaxa but Penelope decided not to ride on this day. Mind you she has in th epast and loves it. But go figure.

Nest a drive around Drakona and saw the traditional way of cooking in the villages of Chania Crete, Greece.Notice some of the deep forest images near the snowline. A rare site for tourists in the Summer.

And the finale of the day was dinner at Therisos.

Till next time..

Putting together a good crew and models was essential. I always want to be efficient on set, but if we can’t have a good time in the process then why bother. The result i ...
