7th June was a busy day all around the Northern Island. The Cafes and restaurants were full in most places. So much for the June lull. It's good to see the streets buzzing with people. Ithaca's expecting a boom long weekend coming up for the Day of the Holy Spirit.
Denis Sikiotis was today put in charge of showing a group of Canadian University Students the historic sites of Ithaca. We caught up with them in Frikes.
The good weather is bringing in the Flotillas and the holidayers. June is not the quiet month everyone was expecting, to the contrary, it's busy, busy, busy. Ithacans have always wanted an extended season. This year may be the start of something beautiful.
Lakis (Lucky) Vlassopoulos landed on Ithacas shores this afternoon. Now Polis beach will no doubt be cleaned up and given it's yearly face-lift as he gets ready to bring out the Banana Lounges for the sunworshippers.
It's the long weekend and it feels ike mid August on Ithaca. The weather's hot, the beaches are full and there's a buzz in every village as the 'Weekenders' from Athens and Patras get the most out of their short time on the island. It's good to see the usual faces. Mandy and Elizabeth are well known for starting the dance floor action. 'Everybody dance now.'
Life's good here on Ithaca
