Lunch at the Farm

After visiting the monastery, we headed to the other side of the mountain village called "St. George Nilias" to a farm/restaurant that Pelagia had heard about from some friends.

There, the kids got to play and see the horses, while also having a fantastic lunch.

The farm/restaurant is built on the site of an old Byzantine watchtower, which kept on the lookout for pirates or other enemies approaching Volos by sea.

The food was fresh and great, and included the local Pelion/Volos specialties.

One of the women who runs the place got our crayons for the kids, including her son, to draw.

Then they all got to meet one of the horses.

Afterwards, we headed back to Portaria and, unfortunately, Kalliopi and her family headed back to Thessaloniki for work on Monday.
