After passing many interesting Greek ruins along the main coastal road towards Kavala,we had chosen last night to go back to a quiet,relaxed island where we'd holiday'd a few years before.Thassos a ferry ride from Kavala.
When we got to Thassos we started to drive around the island to find a camp spot. Wild camping was not allowed, so, we found a campsite.But it was closed.
Seeing the broken gate I decided to climb in and look for someone to ask permission to stay the night. No-one around. I opened the gate for Tim to drive on in and we pitched after making a brew.
Then someone came. A young man with glasses and a little dog with broken leg (in good health!). He was 'Costas' and said he'd ask the owner if it was ok but shouldn't see a problem.Costas had very good English and was quiet spoken. Then another man came,'Jimmy' the manager and all-round worker at the campsite. He was very good natured and helpful. Then another man came-reminiscent of William Baldwin with amazing hypnotic blue eyes and a grizzly beard which made him imposing but mysterious.This was Vasilis the Director of the Campsite.He didn't really speak with us,but gave us permission to stay for a couple of days...who'd have known I was never to leave
