The band played on ...

Like a dinner mint, until "After Eight" tonight ...

Its been a lovely day on the Paralia, a day for eating and drinking - In moderation of course. There have been Sea urchins and assorted shellfish being consumed in the sunshine - after all its still officially fasting time here - its lent ...

The church bells have been ringing all day as celebrations are made for Greek Independence day. Then there were the celebrations for the name day of Evangelistra, and Vangelis.

Its been a busy day with everyone dressed up nice, many in traditional clothing. The children looked lovely - apologies for no photos - but you understand why.

Tonight the Skiathos Band, led the Mayor and the townsfolk in a Candlelit procession from Tries Hieraches church up to Panayia Limna

What a lovely way to end the day ...
