Weather & Skiathos and Skopelos to Evia by Ferry with ANES ....

Many people ask me what it's like here in winter...

Anyone here right now probably has a fair idea by now. My morning leisure wear is a pair of Dunlop Green wellies, a fleece and a pair of shorts. The wellies and fleece essential clothing.  Not bad for June 4th ...

08:35am: Revised dress code, Jeans and socks. The view up to the mountains is even worse ...

Its been pouring with rain overnight, enough to wake me up. There is a fresh breeze, that is cool to say the least. The hills are covered with low dark clouds. I think we have had more rain over the last couple of days, than it seems we have had all the whole winter.

When the sun comes out in the next few days, there will be Mossies the size of cricket balls ..

The much delayed MON5625 is showing as arriving back in UK on Weds at 1515 UK time. Not sure which Wednesday that is though. If it carries on raining like it has been overnight, that could be next Wednesday ..
