September Friday 28th - Only a couple more days of September, but oh what days. The weather has been amazing. Not too hot, not too cold. Perfect summer weather if only we could have it all the time.
Left - Some very large artichokes growing in Ag. Sarantas in the north of Ithaca. Ag. Sarantas has managed to keep it's very traditional charm despite wifi and the lure of the tourism dollar (euro).
Saturday 29th - You'd expect weekends to be the busiest time around the island, but it's actually not. Weekends are quiet, giving us the notion that summer is over, but come Monday to Thursday, it's all happening again. Flotillas bring in many people, keeping the baysides active even as we head into October.
This little note is for you on the island or close to it. There are tickets going for as low as 12 euro from Argostoli in Kefalonia to Pisa or Milano in Italy with Ryanair. That's cheaper than driving the car from Kioni to Vathy and definitely cheaper than going to Patras or Athens. Pack that bag and make the most of the opportunity folks :)
