Squally skies ...

Epiphany dawned under squally skies ...

Up early and up at Taxiacharis, daybreak revealed squally skies


Looking north towards Thessaloniki ...


The skies began to lift as the sun rose ...

Skopolos and low clouds and rain over Allonissos ...

Heavy skies over Evia ...

Great colours over the harbour ...

... and over Plakes too


So i headed out on a little drive down the island in search of kindling for the fire ...

I bumped into some hunters with their dogs, they were somewhat less than impressed when i threw a clementine for one of the dogs to chase, after it came up to check me out.
I like dogs but the hunters tend not to treat them well, so best to distract the hound in case they take a lump out of me.

The sun was peeking through when i returned along Megali Amos ...


Did i mention clementines ?

Free food from natures garden here on Skiathos ...


These were spotted the other day, the aroma from them as i picked them was intoxicating in its citrus sweetness ...

Now the church bells are ringing for the Epiphany church service ...
