Just got back from Kranevo, the weather was very good for September rained a couple of times Tuesday was the worst but cleared up about 3 pm to lovely blue and sunny skies. Didn't bother us much because we were finishing off the renovations of our Villa.
It was sad to see the village closing down. only have a small season in Kranevo from late May to mid September. We were there when they were opening up and there when they were closing down, went the full circle. The villagers are lovely people and have become used to us now. I speak a little Bulgarian and when they hear that they immediately talk on as if I know it fluently so I smile and just keep saying Da Da. They think I am loco loco. Well there has to be a Village Idiot and I don't mind as long as they love and look after me.
We have Bulgarian neighbours at the side of us and at the back an English couple from Essex. Lovely people. David lives there permantly and maintains gardens. But as he is at the back of us he has limited sea view.
We needed our drive stoning and I knew he wanted to chop our big tree down at the side of our Villa. So I said give good price for doing our drive and you can chop the tree down. He gave us very good price and next day we paid him to do the job in the Winter when he has limited work and he came along with Krassia. our neighbour, and chainsaw and got rid of the tree. He gave us a mega pile of logs for our fire and removed our rubbish sacks.
So in all everyone benefitted, Krassis got paid off David. David got his Sea View and we got our logs, rubbished removed and our Drive done. Everyone happy and may it always stay that way.
Now we have to wait until May to get back as we have no more holidays left already had our five weeks.
Just a little report if anyone interested.
