Kalo Pasca apo Skiathos ...

Holy Friday – Megali Pareskevi ...

It all started last night at 10pm The Megali Pempti mass service, Pappa Yorgos voice was relayed, by loudspeakers over the harbour, from the Tries Hieraches church, as the funeral bell tolled.

Its Greek Easter, and town is buzzing, the ferry arrived yesterday bursting at the seams, 900 Brits arriving today to join the party. The boats are back on the harbour, Vangelis is walking the streets with his roses. The bars and restaurants are all open, its the start of summer - Where better a place to be ...

Wish you were here ? Of course you do - You are missing the event of the year ...

Certainly do SkiathosLover1

Little compensation I know, but we do have sunshine forecast here in the UK for the first time this year :)

Doesn't compare to the picture you paint though :(

Here's wishing a wonderful time to all.

The busy scenes around the harbours will be playing in mind all day

Kali Anastasi ! Painting this morning overseen by the locals. Have of course observed the stop work by Midday rule.

The first aircraft from the UK landed at 12:40 local time, just after they started ringing the mourning bell at Tries Hieraches.

Off for a well deserved frosted glass, maybe meet Phil, Sheila & Stig later - Long night ahead ...

If you are painting does that means that you eventually managed to get your leak fixed? Well, not YOUR leak, but you know what I mean.

It is emotional just looking at the photo's on your blog, thanks for them and the report, let's hope the flowers from the epitaphios do their job.....
