The airport on English friday ...

Was a nightmare yesterday ...

Unless you travelled from Birmingham, Luton or Stansted. Everything else was late or very late. Many passengers sitting on the aircraft in the UK, when they should be sitting somewhere on Skiathos.

No parking available at JSI, due to missed slots, technical faults and that last essential visit to duty free.

Anyone left enjoying the airport view at East Midlands, Gatwick,  Manchester or Newcastle now knows why the airport her is being expanded. 25 flights yesterday arriving on this rock, the ones from the other countries made it in and out more or less to time.

The Munich flight, not staying overnight this week, affecting the Scandanavian flights today. The mighty condor breaking three tyres the other friday, is that a new record ...

A day of Hello and Goodbyes, hello to Leigh and Steve, Maureen and Dave (Just missed you at the airport) Steve the 'townboy' is here, Ken & Brenda who spotted me later (Ken - Junior says you are a good friend!) then the whirlwind of blonde plasma energy that is Suejet appeared and ran through the tables to give me an emotional hug ...

I said farewell to Stig, who by his own admission 'is not good at saying goodbye' safe journey back to Oslo today 'Stig Marti and Pelle' let me know if the 'cough mixture' made it home OK ...

I have been feeling really under the weather, for about four days, I think last night, the body had started to feel a bit better. Batteries recharged after the jump start from Sue. On the recommendation of the 'great sage' we treated ourselves - Well its crazy August and everyone who works here, knows what that has been like. Just a few days left before September ...

This was just what the doctor ordered ...
I have seen three sunrises this morning, One over Alonissos at 06:55. The sun an orange ball of fire in a tangerine sky. Then peaking its head over Skopelos from a different vantage point.Then later popping up over the pounta, hows that for a 'Good day sunshine' ...

Which is what we have in store, for a few days at least ...
