Rather breezy ...

Blowing the cobwebs away this morning ...

The pollen too for those suffering with allergies, here on the rock. Some new pale faces out and , about after yesterday's flight arrivals from the UK. I think we humans, are descended from the meer cat. The expressions are the same ...

Full moon tonight, some are a little crazy already judging by some of the conversations I have witnessed this morning.

Kay and Trevor arrived here, sadly my astronomical UK specialist, has failed his May objectives. Nothing of solar interest for me to view. However he had time to contemplate this at Gatwick. Everyone twiddling their thumbs, whilst they waited for a push back from the terminal.

Last night, I met up with Steve_53 and friends, who had pitched camp at Taverna Alexandros. They are doing the island on foot this week.  Mad dogs and Englishmen, out in the noon day sun.  Great stories about how they were led astray on their walks, four men and a dog, and a yomp up to Kastro ...

Then down on the harbour, met up with Janeybos. One glass of wine, led to another, and we did not go hungry at this venue. Next door was rather quiet ...

Election posters have appeared all over town overnight. It's getting interesting, with just a few days to go ...

Later update:

The high winds caused the abandonment, of the annual infant school children's boat trip. They were stuck on Koukounaries beach, and the boat could not continue. The island buses were commandeered to ferry the children back to town.

Later the warm winds strengthened, and lumps were flying off the trees late this afternoon. However the winds hid the temperature, a very warm 31 degrees.



There should be some red noses around on Thursday morning ...
