Its nearly over ...

Summer is drifting into Autumn ...

The holiday season has around 12 days to run.  The real Skiathos is getting ready to return from its summer siesta.

October is but a few days away, some hardy tourists will brave it out until October 14th, but the the island is going to sleep.

Tavernas close overnight, tables and chairs are stacked and gone the following morning to winter storage, along with pots and plants. A vacant shell where days earlier, people laughed and dined. Chefs, waiters all departed  - some for the mainland, others to work on the land and building works this winter.

Thoughts turn to a post season Tsipouro lunch on the Paralia - It will not be long now. Lets hope we get to enjoy some sunshine too ...
