The last day of august ...

Crazy August is coming to an end ...

Waiters are resting tired feet, Papadamatis street is not as busy, shopkeepers are looking less stressed. Tonight after the ferries have departed, for the mainland, it will seem a lot quieter.

Another coach load, just departing for the mainland ...

Someone said to me yesterday "Its over, today is the last crazy day" one week ago, another said, "Now the seasons at an end" Greeks consider August to be the last month of summer.

It's also the last day in office, for our mayor Mr Plomaritis, tomorrow Mr Prebanzanos is back in charge.

The last few nights it's been cooler, on my way up the island its noticeable the heat has lessened, thanks to the Meltemi winds. It's pleasantly warm by day, with a gentle breeze. Clouds around in the morning, that vacate by lunchtime.

Tomorrow it's September, traditionally, when the weather starts to break. If we believe the forecast, then true to form Tuesday should be interesting. Not least because many of the tourists are checking weather apps, and making plans, just like our new mayor ...

Off for a swim later with junior, yes I deserve it ...
