I returned to Athens mid-afternoon and immediately changed in to shorts and t-shirt: It was quite warm as I walked from the railway station to my hotel. After checking in to the hotel I left my luggage in my room…
When I awoke this morning it was still dark – sunrise in Greece at this time of year is not until after 07:30. It wasn’t long though until the first daylight revealed clearer skies than yesterday and the Sun started to shine.
What great weather we’ve had today… NOT! It is that time of year when the weather in Greece is starting to turn. On the plus side, I did see a sort of sunset tonight.
The weather in Greece at this time of year isn’t exactly cold, but it is the sort of weather where you might want to have a jumber with you. In the sunshine it is pleasantly warm – like an English spring day.
This is in fact the first time I have been to Greece ‘out of season’. It is that time of year when the nights are drawing in, temperatures are dropping and the tourists are leaving.
It was cooler today; clouds had taken over and we even had a couple of short, light rain showers. Just as I was drying off after a swim and thinking it was time for another, it rained a little and cooled me down.
Unlike the larger boats which run trips from Nydri, the M/S Christina takes just 55 passengers, and each passenger has a sunbed for relaxing. You are journeying in comfort and style!
This morning we drove to the Dimossari Waterfalls/Kαταρράκτες Δημοσάρη near Nydri/Νυδρί. If you look at the scenery around Lefkada, you’ll notice it is very green when compared to other Greek islands – some of which are very barren. The reason…
This is the beach we came to on the bus a couple of weeks ago but today there was less wind so it was swimmable. Before our swim however we walked along the beach to see what we could find. There was a nice breeze to stop us getting too hot as well today!
After swimming a couple of times in the Ionian’s turquoise waters we went for a walk along the road. The beach is actually quite long so there are several places you can go to get away from people if you want a quiet bit of beach.
