A Day of rest and recovery.
Today consisted of being pampered at the Divani Apollon Palace Spa & Thallasso Center.Quite a treat – expectially after walking 26.2 miles the day before. If you ever get the opportunity to go, I would HIGHLY recommend the facility. Lovely staff, gorgeous place, interesting salt water pool with massaging jets that really felt good on my sore feet and legs.
Late afternoon activities included shopping at Plaka and then dinner at the Grande Bretagne Hotel. It is a very nice hotel.The food was good, the view of the acropolis at night even better – not to be duplicated. A must if traveling to athens.
All in all a great way to celebrate after the successful completion of the marathon!
Below is a picture of Cynthia, Phyllis, Kathy and me with the acropolis in the background, Jeanne was back at the hotel catching up on sleep.
