Καλό ταξίδι φίλε ...

Good Journey my friend ...

Yesterday we celebrated the life, of a dear Skiathos friend, John Jackman ...


On a wet blustery day, with challenging driving conditions. The sun appeared as if on cue (A gift from Skiathos) for our friend, as we bade him farewell, and a safe journey ...

We learned of his love of life, music, the nickname 'Mad Dog' and the love affair of his 28 year Skiathos adventure. Still planning a summer return, and looking for a passport, that was in a safe place. Beautiful words from the heart, and his beloved family ...

Afterwards - Much afterwards in my case, after an adventure in the one way system.
I finally made my entrance, after my Monty Python adventure, and met up with friends and family. To raise a glass, and a coffee cup for our absent friend ...

Good to see 'TJ & Fast Eddie' from the Boomerang club - Geoff and as we are on first name terms again. 'Tracey and Steve' the silent surfers from Sittingbourne ...

Yvonne Farouk, Tamara & Nick, you did John proud - Thank you for allowing us to share the moment, with you. John sending us away with a smile, looking on the bright side of life ...

PS Those pastries in the wrappers (Lebanese?) were delicious ...
