Snow joke ...

Apparently there is snow in the UK ...

Its a bit nippy here in the wind too,

Sunny but a chill breeze, after last nights thunderstorm. Its cleared the air and the skies too. The new harbour is best described as rather fresh this morning. The trawlers have stayed at home ...


Lovely flowers bursting out in the spring sunshine - everywhere ...



The bourtzi us quite colourful at this time of year, both in the sun ...


Or in the shade amongst the irises, which stood up well to the thunderstorm last night ...


Some views though are just as good whatever the weather ...


However its the Independence day weekend, and Monday is a Public Holiday in Greece, Here preparations are starting for the parade  ...



Meanwhile down on Cyprus they have a lot on their mind this holiday weekend. Good luck to them, they certainly are going to need it ...

Late news: 19:00hrs ...

This afternoon we learned that the Express Pegasus had not sailed, from Volos for the islands, due to the high winds. In the 'gentle' breeze on Palio Limani, the port police arrived and instead of issuing parking tickets raised a nice new flag, for the holiday weekend ...


Hope you like the colours in this photo, amazing light once again here on Skiathos.


Walking along the paralia, you may be tempted by an outside table at Kabourelias. You can tell its a warm day, there are locals, not ex-pats sitting outside enjoying the sunshine.


Still not tempted ?


This photo there is an expanse of sky - Why ?
Well that blemish dead centre, above the flagpole is the moon, not a dirty lens ...


Last picture is Theo, on his way to set the nets. Once again he has promised me a bucket load of fish in the morning, and to take me out on the boat, and to retell me his life story ...



But most of all he is looking forward to summer - Look out ladies ...

  2. Needed to get some air into my lungs, antibiotics like horse pills doing their job. Spring is bursting out all over here, the sunshine makes it so much better.
    Just had a similar conversation - Try a winter trip. You know it makes sense ...
