Σκιάθος θεοφανεια 2014 - Skiathos Theofania 2014 ...

The perfect cure for a new year hangover ...

A bracing dip in the old harbour, to retrieve a cross, cast into the deep by Pappa Yorgos ...

Kalypso on station ...
Watching for the Pappa ...
Did she fall or was she pushed ?
Here we go ...
Into the chilly water ...
The cross is retrieved from the deep ...
After all that excitement the clouds had gathered - so to celebrate Stratos Tsikounas fine achievement, we headed to a well known ouzeria, to toast his success. Now keeping out the chill also makes you hungry, so we had a meze or two ...





Before two young lady swimmers returned with the cross, as it made its way from cafe to ouzeria. A donation made to the swimmers for their efforts ...


 Stratos Tsikouanas - θεοφανεια 2014 - Champion ...

Bravo - Stratos Tsikounas...

  1. Well you certainly have an eventful life on Skiathos! Just looking at the pictures of the swimmers jumping in made me shiver - especially as the watchers were all well wrapped up in woollen coats and hats! The weather looks to have changed for you now, while we are still suffering with strong gusty winds and rain. Luckily we live in the countryside and have not been affected by the dreadful floods which the country is suffering.

    1. Just after the meze, it rained. In fact it's raining now. We should be OK for a few days, but we must expect a return to cold weather soon. The end of January/February can be really rough here.
