Something different ...

But I like it ...

Set in a wall, and sadly stained with asvesti, but a thoughtful addition to someone's town-house ...


There must be a story behind it, a captains house perhaps. Otherwise, its a strange place to hide part of the family dinner service.

On the subject of boats, this boat has taken my eye. Its lovely and has been moored here for a few days. It's clearly much loved by its lucky owner ...


Its the Pentecost holiday weekend, last night Greeks descended on the island from the mainland. The ferries resembling landing craft, as the doors opened and the passengers stormed down the ramps.

At the airport quite a few aircraft were late arriving from the UK. One aircraft landing here after midnight. Olympic Air have even been using a jet on the Athens - Island Hopper - evening service a few times this week.

Must be summer - ah yes thats why it is so hot here on the rock ...

1pm update:

The invasion continues. Express Skiathos, Proteus, Flying Cat 5 and Express Pegasus have disgorged hundreds of weekend visitors from the mainland. The port completely blocked by cars, trucks and motorcycles darting in between ...

Summer has arrived on Skiathos ...

Another interesting arrival, the Adina, clearing customs here on Skiathos.


Now its not every day that a boat sails in under the red ensign, fitted with a B&Q garden umbrella. However that is what happened today.

Likewise clearing customs here is a little strange too, the crew will be spending the weekend here - waiting for someone to unlock the drawer with the papers and stamps ...
