Wednesday, 25 February 1863

Lovely all day. N.W. wind strong ― about 7 P.M.

Slept ill ― & was loath to rise. But I did so, ― for these fine days with early moonlights are not to be thrown away. So, breakfast over by 8.15 ― we shut up house, & G. & I were off by 8.30 ― reaching the crags of the Evangelista above Pelica exactly at Eleven o’clock. There I drew (& lunched ―) till 5 P.M. ―when we walked down ― & all by the moonlight, reached Corfu ― by 7.30. ― High wind has just set in.

Dined ― but was horribly cold: ― & went to bed at 9.30.

G. got me as good a cold dinner as possible. ―
