Its been rather warm today ...

The kind of day that sees your skin, turn brown before your eyes. 

Officially it seems its almost touched 32 degrees here in town this afternoon, recorded at the Skiathos weather station.

There was a fresh warm breeze, from the north for landings at the airport. A change from recent days where the hairdryer from the south has been blowing hard ...


For some just the simple pleasures of life on a warm day, and what might be caught for lunch, or dinner or nothing at all ...


The table is set, now we wait the catch of the day ...


A good spot to watch house martins here, whilst the 'principles of flight' are explained to you. However as the jets battled into a headwind, the house martins performed their acrobatics overhead with greater ease.

If you want to know what Lalaria looked like years ago, here are some of the stones, that no longer reside there for your enjoyment ...


If anyone owns a house, then they need not think it belongs to them. If you are not here, then your door is fair game. Here are two examples from this evening ...



However some people rely on simple style, to show off their homes to the best example ...


As the house martins, and swallows are screeching again overhead, this evening. There is a fishing boat departing the old harbour to lays its nets, I can hear its engine labouring as it heads out to sea.

Pappa Giorgos is ringing the church bells, at Tries Hieraches so it must be Thursday - who needs a calendar or a watch ...
