Cloudy days ...

Last nights storm has left some cloud behind ...

It also sent people scurrying into town, as the beaches were considered a no go area for many. The shops were doing a great trade, they pray for days like this. The worried study group of the BBC weather forecast masses, now know the forecast was way out. The storms had passed the night before. All thoughts of diversions to Athens were now a distant memory.

I  met up with Pete Williams - friend of the blog, and comments here as  PWLL. Pete is here on holiday with his daughter. Great to meet up with you at last. We may yet get to finish our conversation ...

Later in the process of relocating lemons, to a place where they will be better appreciated, Val and Kev arrived. Kev clearly had never seen a lemon the size of a grapefruit before. After a quick chat he headed off to find a glass big enough, to take the Gin and Tonic to go with it. An ice bucket springs to mind ...

The airport was very busy, plenty of Boomerangers arrived, and headed off to their favourite haunts. I met of with the 'Ninja' Vivienne and 'Elle' our island loving west coast american at Taverna Alexandros. Along came Lesley D and her mum to swell the numbers.

Lesley D, Ninja - Brian, Vivienne, Elle, Kathleen ...
And the 'most famous waiter' in Skiathos
Alex ...
I had a 'miso kilo' carafe of red wine for the Ninja, complete with a straw. Its a joke as he always says 'I never buy him a drink'. He is one of the nicest people I have met here on the island. We first met at Alexandros many years ago, and its a banter (Which many do not understand) and friendship that has continued to this day ...

Lovely people and good friends, at the home of the Boomerang club ...

Later update:

Apparently I was spotted there the night before too - by Kev and Pat from Preston who said ...

'Spotted - the man himself.......it had to be......who else could walk into Alexandros and sit himself down with staff after introducing a couple of diners, then disappear into the night waving to more friends' ...

Who me ? ...
