Its over, tourism has finished the last aircraft has departed. The closed sign has gone up on the island until May 2011.
8th October 16.19pm and the final Monarch to Manchester lines up on Runway 02
Well thats the way it seems, and to the passing observer that would seem to be true. Its now back to normal, friends have appeared now the masses have departed. People have time for each other again, and in a few weeks time life will be back to its relaxed pitch.
Autumn brings long walks on deserted beaches, time to investigate the interior of the island, mushroom picking, Olives to be harvested, swimming in water that is still warm. and the masses are not here to enjoy it.
Oh well back to the grind ...
