The eve of the Panagia ...

Its been a quiet day here in town ...

The weather has been cool and grey, and a hint of rain in the air. Its the eve of Panagia Kounistra, when the townsfold take a pilgrimage across the hills to Kounistra.

Today the Tries Hieraches church has been made ready for one of the most important religious festivals here on the island.

At the moment its fingers crossed as tomorrow, which is an island holiday. The weather looks like its going to be wet. Not the best to be following the old paths up across the town, and up into the hills.

Tonight down in Peloponnese its big Thunderstorms on the radar, so hopefully the worst of the weather will miss us up here in the Sporades. We shall see ...
