Thursday, 20 March 1862

Gray early ― but lovely after 10. ―

Rose at 6.45. Breakfast ― & at 9 ― off, with G. ― to the Hotel St. George ― at 9.30, with Miss Goldsmid & Mrs. Naylor to Palaiokastritza ― wh. we reached at 12.20.

Very lovely bay & rox!

We lunched in the Monastery ― & afterwards saw the bones of an old wale [sic], & prowled about the sands till 2.45. Very beautiful place. Recollections of 2 other times here. ― Drive back. Inside worried by coach=movement, & nerves by restraint.

Walked by Potamo road ― home by 7 ˇ[6.15] ― seeing Craven on the way.

Dined with Miss G.: ― a pleasant evening ― yet ― yet ― yet.

Home by 10.15.
