16c and raining in San Steph and the weather looks awful on the webcam, however, the beach is being cleaned quickly which is good news.

Tonights report comes from a rather damp San Stef.

The rain came this afternoon, as predicted, and whilst its a little wet, its not cold.

The newest restaurant in the village opened this evening....Quattro Italian, in the ex Chinese Restaurant premises.
I haven't seen a menu as yet, but their board outside promises fresh home made pasta, which sounds rather nice.

It's a little quiet here tonight, but as its raining a little, and some people are travelling home tomorrow, I imagine many are frequenting their hotel bars and restaurants tonight.

Another nice sunny one today. A cooler breeze this evening, but not cold enough to stop people enjoying eating outside.

The new Italian has a menu outside. Looks very nice, fresh pasta, salads etc, no pizza....but as there are great pizza available from Town Pizza its easy to get that pizza fix!

Abba tribute being enjoyed at Condor, Latin Dance night at Bar 38, and football on in various bars, so plenty of options for a night out, not forgotten the quieter bars at Kamini, Acabar, Aquarius, and 3 W's if you just fancy a drink.

Busy at Athens Bar tonight, with plenty of people there to wish the best of luck to Nikos and Kasia, who are getting married tomorrow! Fingers crossed for a beautiful sunny Corfiot day for them!

A nice sunny day, just a little breezy.

Today saw the wedding of Kasia and Nikos, from Athens Bar. Lots of guests started to congregated at around 10am, and the groom, looking very smart in suit and waistcoat left at around 11am. A coach arrived to pick up most of the guests, to take to the ceremony. It was so nice to see everyone all dressed up, especially people who are usually dressed so casually.

The bride left at just gone midday, and looked beautiful in a white, strapless dress, with flowers in her hair. Just before she left, Yiannis, from the Gyros place opposite let off some dynamite, and shots from his shotgun, in true Greek fashion!

A little late with todays post, as we closed a little earlier than usual, and popped over to Arillas for a beer, and to catch the second half of a gig by 'The Worried Men', a four man band consisting of local retired ex pats. They're very good, and played at Nafsika earlier in May. If they come to San Stef again, I'll let you know.

Nice sunny one again today, with a little bit of a breeze! :D
Cabmufc, the worried men play a bit of blues, a bit of country, a bit of Bob Dylan, George Harrison, etc. They generally play through May and June, then have a break until Sept, as one of them returns to the UK.

Good news for fans of Sunset Bar....I know some people were asking if it was going to open this year.
Well tonight was their opening night for this year. Tables, chairs and parasols all out on the patio, with candle lanterns on the tables. All looks very nice, and the menu looks good too.

A slightly hazy day, but nice all the same!

Many people out and about this morning, doing their last minute shopping and saying their farewells. And nice to hear people saying 'see you next year'.

This evening many were enjoying the last of todays sun whilst enjoying a meal on the terrace of Yianni's grill room, and most restaurants were all doing a good trade.

Had a couple come into our shop this afternoon, having just arrived. Last year they came over on the bus from Sidari for the day, and were telling me then how this seemed such a nice friendly place to stay....this year they've come here for a fortnight, staying for 2 weeks at Vicky apartments. Another 2 San Stef converts!!

Very warm today, quite humid.

This afternoon there were some ominously dark clouds hanging over the hills inland, but here it stayed dry  :)

Many people at the quiz night at Thomas Bay this evening for their pop music and TV quiz. They hold their quizzes twice a week, and they are very popular.

And the frogs are in fine voice tonight in the stream next to the hotels and beside Acabar....they're quite tuneful too, but hopefully don't distract the quizzers too much!
