”If you like piña colada, and getting caught in the rain!”
We left Corfu on the ferry and returned to the mainland. We had about a one hour bus ride from the Port to our next destination. First we enjoyed a wonderful lunch at a restaurant by the lake.
After lunch we toured the castle in Ionnina.
Once we toured the city, we went to our stunning hotel right on the lake. As soon as I arrived I went out to the lake and spread Chris’s ashes. The view was gorgeous!!
I returned back out to the city center and went to the police station. I traded police patches with someone in the station. She literally took the patch off her uniform and gave it to me, then I gave her a CHP patch. When Chris and I would travel we would exchange patches with local police departments. I figured, why not continue. It was awesome!
While I was in the city, it suddenly began POURING RAIN! I was walking toward a restaurant I wanted to try but I quickly became SOAKED! I had no umbrella since the weather forecast had no indication of any rain. So I was caught in the rain, drenched, and hungry. I hopped in a cab and returned to my hotel.
When I returned to the hotel I showered and went down the the bar where I found several of my tour mates enjoying cocktails, so I decided to join them. I had a gin and tonic. Several of us decided to continue the party and had dinner together. It was a great evening and so much fun!!
