more Archaeological discoveries!

Yesterday we went to Chania (hun-YA) and looked around a little. at one of the restaurants they were painting something and two geese fell in the paint. Then we went to the South-west side of the Island and waded to the part of the beach on Elaphonisi (Deer Island) there were a lot of sand sculptures such as sand castles and turtles. We also learned that the Egyptians lived on Crete Because we saw some pyramids and and a sphinx and I found another one. It was a great beach with Pink sand! It was also great for the paddles. To get to the beach there was a one lane tunnel through the mountain.
Lots more pictures from Chania and Elaphonisi!

more handstands in an alley and on the beach!
people at the Dr. fish spa with the nibbly fish.
here are the geese that fell into the paint.
this bus is going through the one way tunnel even though the
tunnel has a turn in the middle
on the right is a turtle that some people made out of shells they made the words we can live together. on the left is the sphinx that I found. it is so authentic that it does not even have a nose!

  1. Is it me or does that "sphinx" look like a prone Sand Person from Star Wars? Seriously - the shell eyes look just like the Sand People eyes thru their cloaks! So how exactly do geese fall into paint? There is something "fishy" about that. I bet when no one was looking Jaybob painted them - ha ha. I still want to know what happens if you stick your face into the Dr. Fish tank. Get a snorkel and try it! Its part of every Jedi's training:-) I bet I could get Uncle Crabby to do it if he was there....

  2. Seems like I am not the only one who things the Cheung boys had something to do with the "painted" geese!

    Uncle Crabby is back from his weeklong wet, wet Tour BC bike trip. He even has some raw skin on his buttocks from it. (Don't ask!) Wonder if the nibble fishes can help it heal?

    BTW, with all the gyro pitas you guys are having, how come you still look so scrawny. Did you guys order the "low cal", diet version of the gyro pitas? Maybe you need to super-size them. So are you having gyro pitas for breakfast, lunch AND dinner? Better do so since you won't have them in Norway! Wonder if there is a Norwegian favourite fast food?

  3. Uncle Crabby not only has a raw bum. His bum is also very bruised up. He "said" is was from the bike saddle. Norwegian fast food? I'm thinking salted herring wrapped in a pancake with elderberry jam.
