The seventies tabloid moniker 'Cor-phew' is right on the button.
Swallows and swifts dive into the water, the cicadas chirrup and the white tourists from the cruise ships are getting redder.
Time to dive into the grounds of Mon Repos, the birthplace of the Duke of Edinburgh. It's a shady spot, with plenty of cover.
I could spend all day in a dusty museum with stelae, votive goods, bits of ancient jewellery, arrowheads and figures of Artemis. And to find the remains of a Doric temple (5th century BC) in the Mon Repos grounds was, to me at least, the honey on the ancient Greek baclava.
