|Apparently this privately owned yacht went aground at Nimborio earlier this week and was towed round to Yialos, kept afloat by these bladders. Salvage attempts to raise her will be taking place soon.|
|Wednesday morning's Blue Star Diagoras was absolutely packed, as you can see from the crowd at the clock tower. It was our first day return to Rhodes in 10 days because of the strike and limited winter schedules and at the same time also the last for some time as Thursday's strike meant that the Friday boat would not be coming through in time for anyone needing to get to Rhodes during business hours to benefit.|
|An orange tree, swelling with fruit which will ripen in the course of the next few weeks. The heavy rain in September and again in October gave the citrus trees a head-start this winter.|
|Now that the Great Winter Sleep has begun it is very quiet in Chorio and often the only life to be seen is in feline form.|
|A windy sky on Tuesday. The weather is still dominated by a big high pressure system which is showing little sign of shifting. Temperatures remain between 16 and 23 degrees centigrade and the long range forecast remains rainless.|
|A rebel in Chorio. I don't know to whom this Mercedes belongs as it has only appeared in the neighbourhood recently but whoever it is is determined to ignore the request in triplicate.|
Have a good weekend.
