St Georges Day in Skiathos ...

Χρονια πολλα ! Its Yorgos name day in Greece ...

So off to church down by the lake for all the George and Georginas. Then after Pappa Yorgos has celebrated with them all. Its down to the serious business.

Its a tradition here that there is a horse race round the lake, on St Georges day - 'sadly this year, due to my jousting injury, I am unable to compete' ...



However Skiathian will try to take some 'left handed' photos later ...

Later update:

The Skiathos Saint George's Day, horse race winner ...










Its been a cool grey day, so quite appropriate that the grey horse won. Plenty of dust kicked up by the horses in some keenly competitive races. Lots of sahara dust up in the skies too ...
