I made a sausage and Haricot bean casserole tonight! Sound yummy? Well, unless you are a veggie of course but I have a feeling it's that nice it would turn the head of a vegetarian as well. A little bit or preparation with the soaking and cooking of the beans but other than that a breeze. The beauty of it is that I do loads and it is even better the next day...these sort of dishes often are. See, just talking about it I have set off the munchies. It's gone 11pm and am contemplating a wander down to have a bit more. Mmmmm, probably best I leave well alone. Still, I have loads so if you fancy any let me know and I'll put a small dish to one side for you. I pretty sure the sausages are Toulouse and something else that escapes me but is equally nice, might be Venison..you know Bambi! Always good to try and create a mental picture of your meal, you know for the ultimate experience.

OK, yet another from the extremely secret old American base in Gournes (Γούρνες) Crete. I think that this is the last of it viewed from this angle, I think four is enough for anyone. I may return on the next trip and try and capture it slightly differently. These seem to be the remainder of a transmitting or listening station, possibly both. The place is interesting in that even thought the base has been empty for years all the building are still there...yes ripped of all usable materials but you are still able to wander around. These masts seem pretty much untouched. In the UK this place would probably have a 10' fence around it with patrolling dogs in Crete not a thing wander at will. I love that. Anyway here is an aerial view. You can clearly see the masts in the centre of the photo and the remainder of the base surrounding it.
