Robin on honeymoon!

Robin at Elafonisi beach

Yes, here's a pic of Robin on our honeymoon in Crete (when I say 'our' I mean me and Lex, not me and Robin - me and the bird are just good friends).

The beach was a crazy, windy drive through the hills down to the south-west coast of Crete. Apparently the beach, Elafonisi, is very busy during the summer, but we were there off season on a gorgeous, crisp day and there wasn't another person on the beach apart from us. We didn't quite dare to swim in the chilly winter water, but we had a nice paddle (and I've just about got the feeling back in my feet now).

Good to see so many of you on the Blog yesterday - 46 visitors! - so clearly you've not forgotten about me and my red-breasted pal. Hello to Mary who posted a comment for the first time yesterday - always nice to have a new poster (obviously alongside the cherished regulars!).

How blue does that sky look in the pic? Ah, wish I was back there. Back to work on Thursday for me after a massive six weeks off (a sabbatical) for our wedding. Sigh...

I was wondering if you would ever come back from your honeymoon. From the looks of that sky, I can see why you wouldn't want to come back!

Every since I found this posting earlier today I have been sitting at my desk singing "Rockin Robin". Does anyone else remember that song? I propose it is Robin's signature tune. Any other suggestions?

Rockin Robin - tweet, tweet, tweet!

Glad to see Robin had a good time in Greece - I can't wait to see how he settles into married life - lol!
