Whats happenin'
« on: March 28, 2014, 12:13:57 PM »
Good morning all!

As the new season approaches we thought it might be a good idea to start a daily update thread for San Stef.
Now we are regularly in the village, and like others, preparing for the summer, we see lots of projects and activity happening.

The idea is a daily insight into village life, be it new businesses opening, established businesses improving, local events, the ever changing beach, even just the weather, just a snippit a day to keep everyone up to date on whats going on, and whet your appetites for your visits to this lovely little resort.

And, if theres anyone on the forum considering the possibility of a holiday to San Stef, hopefully we can encourage you to come and visit us!

Fab idea, you can only tell so much from the webcam! It'd be good to hear about what's going on in the village, whether there's been any more erosion of the beach and of course a daily weather update!

Hi Hippopots,

We visited you last June, the young 'un decorated a plate and she is thoroughly looking forward to visiting you again in August.

Can we expect any changes to Hippopots shop for this coming season?

Thanks for the positive replies!
Hi D@G, there will be some changes at Hippopots, lots of new stock, and we've got a little bit of decorating to do. We're abit behind some of the businesses, but our landlord has spent the winter doing building work above us, so we've waited for him to finish his work before we start.

However, plenty of others have been busy.
 
The building that houses Patricia's hair and beauty has had a total exterior paint job...not a small undertaking, but it looks great!

And further along the same road, heading towards the church, the old Sundowners Bar, is, as has been mentioned on the forum, having a big overhaul.....will be interesting to see how that progresses.

Plenty of other things happening which we'll keep you all posted on.


Today has been a little overcast with a few showers, the tail end I think of an amazing thunderstorm we had yesterday, followed by a hailstorm that settled in places, resembling snow!
But the sun is forecast for the weekend, so can't complain!  :)

Our little boy loved to wave at the dog last year (usually when him and his dad were on their way for a pint!)

Well, after a couple of grey, overcast, thundery days, San Stef has been back to its usual glorious self today. The sun is just setting on a day of endless blue sky. With no haze, the Diapontia Islands could be clearly seen, as could the Albanian mountains.

The rain we had here settled as snow in Albania, with the mountains looking like they've had a dusting of icing sugar sifted over them, beautiful.

Darts were being played in 3 W'S this afternoon. As the only bar open this winter in the village, they can be quite a popular spot for locals. Incidently, Chrisanthos and team won the Arillas/San Stef winter darts league this year. And Margarita and her darts partner Spiros beat myself and hubby in the mixed pairs competition a couple of weeks ago. They do like their darts in 3 W'S!!
