Blue skies above ...

But very breezy breezy down here below ...

August continues to be a windy month, just like July was before it. Tourists rather confused why it's sunny, but they cannot go to Lalaria.

Breezy Skiathos ...
It's just a breeze they say, but the port authorities, and the captains know best ...

Express Skiathos arrives and disgorged another thousand passengers or so. Having a bit of trouble, once again unloading the freight, in our overcrowded port.

Strangest sight of the morning, a donkey was wandering along the paralia. It was a medium slow youngish looking donkey, heading right to left. Probably had enough of the clubbing for summer 2013, and was heading for the ferry - 'Im a Greek Donkey get me out of here' ...

It was taken into custody, by the port police. Who strangely seemed quite prepared for this kind of thing.


Presumably when the owner arrives, he will be reunited with it, and an €80 ticket for some obscure by-law for parking your "ass" on the waterfront in summer ...

Kalee mera apo Skiathos ...

12:45 update:

Still warm - OK its hot and breezy. Enough is enough, SWMBO & Junior have deserted me for the delights of Vromoliminos beach. So I have retreated to Kabourelias for an ice cold beer, and a platter of grilled sardines.


You know it makes sense ...

Sadly SIR PG spotted me from his global communications fortress, moored here again overnight on the Old Harbour. He has just swiftly departed. As a patriot, all I said was 'charge lunch to the man with the lionheart' ...

Meze anyone ...
