Hello to all members of San Stefanos forum!

Hi everyone!

Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback!
Today started off amazingly well with scorching sunshine, so there I was thinking to myself "I'll save going to the beach now to enjoy a stunning spring sunset later!" until the minute the sun started going down, so did a storm!
I called this "Photo of the day" so that I could post the photo that beats all other photos from today. I didn't get a great image of the storm, but someone else did... a little closer to Corfu Town! Enjoy :) Aline x

I'm an absolute beginner watercolour painter with a particular bent on landscapes. I'm okay with the sea but struggle with sky. I'm going to have a go at painting one of these pictures this weekend. Thank you for the inspiration. :)

Taken 18/03/2017 Photo Of the Day!! :)

Lovely walk starting from San Stefano up to the headland and down to Arillas beach!
Since there is no photo of the day taken today, I will compensate with an extra image of Arillas from the same walk! ;)

Hi everyone!!
GLORIOUS, GLORIOUS WEATHER TODAY! Went for a lovely walk with mine and moms 4 dogs today on Arillas beach and it was so warm I was flirting with the idea of going in :) I've not seen Arillas & San Stefanos with this much sand in years, I hope it lasts!

Tonight I must show you the sunset from Sunday... The sky caught FIRE and San Stefanos was bathed in fiery pink and red! This picture was taken from my balcony on Sunday around 6.30pm. Noraml service with daily images returning tomorrow ;) Gia sas!

Hi everyone!
I apologise for the inactivity, I had to leave for a few days away from San Stef so I wasn't able to do the lovely dog walks I do everyday in this lovely part of the world! We've had incredible weather here, it's been so warm with the most breathtaking sunsets and I saw a couple that looked like tourists to me, and it made me smile - it appears that easyjet are already doing direct flights  :)

Back at my house today and I went for a lovely walk up to the headlands, caught this lovely view!

Here's a picture I took before the wind! And very happy to say that San Stef is starting to look busy... everyone is getting ready for the season, puts a smile on my face ^_^

So, I think you might have heard that it's been raining quite a bit over here!
Yesterday and today we have had the sun shining back into our lives, and very much enjoying it :) It's not really meant to rain here, is it? ;)
Here are a couple of images I took yesterday overlooking the beach, off in a bit to take some more for you!!
