Lazy Days ...

Should be like this ...

The sun is out, it's warm, steamy warm with a heat haze, rising off the sea towards Evia. So what to do? I went to the beach. The beach of choice was Agia Paraskevi, and I pitched up with a book at the Bamboon bar ...

Sunbeds still out to the left of me, and a few locals,  a lifeguard in the tower, a large beer and steamy view in front of me.


To the right a local fishing, with four lines out. Some people spread along the beach on towels and occupants of the sunbeds distant at the Skiathos Princess, which is still open for business - the last week of the season for the guests from Germany ...

Two friends arrived from town, and we started chatting and enjoying the scenery, I have to say I was chasing the shade from the umbrella, it was scorchio ...

Entertainment provided by a guest from the hotel, strolling along the shoreline, in their lovely white dressing gown. Oblivious to the local with four fishing lines, and managed to start hopping along the waterline wrapped in the fishing lines, and being berated by a rather angry Greek local ...

Lunch - a club sandwich and some chips ...


Somehow the book remained unopened ...

Chatting and scorching in the sun, an updated weather forecast from Alex of the Big Bad Wolf - 'Warm all week enjoy'! OK we will ...

Quick check:


Not bad ...

I had enough sun and headed off to find some shade ...

Ding! Message from the famous Stig - 'Ready when you are' ...
Stig has popped down from Norway for the weekend - Great effort ...

Tsipouro meze night, a shower and off to the ouzeria. Where we were made very welcome, and Stig already in residence. The full moon rising over the Pounta, will we order one or two. Two I said, the waiter has been walking all summer - That got me a pat on the back from an exhausted friend ...


Not a bad offering, and we raised a glass to Mr Malcolm, and we certainly enjoyed it, this was the second course. A coffee at the Gerani and we wandered off into the night, I wonder what today will bring ...


Not a bad start to the day ...
