Hi all, thanks for the replies.... :)

Today saw a sunny, warmer day. There was still dark clouds looming to the East, but they stayed there, so we had a nice dry day.

There has been work going on behind closed doors at the old Chinese restaurant premises, and I can confirm today that it is going to be an Italian restaurant.
They are hoping to be open within the next 2 weeks, having to wait for final paperwork to come through. One thing about Greece.....you have to have lots of patience when it comes to paperwork, as there's always lots of it!!

An overcast day, but everyone keeps saying things are hotting up this week.
The wind has dropped completely, and this evening the sea was like a millpond, just lapping gently at the shore.

The unseasonal weather did unfortunately bring with it a huge ammount of seaweed to the beach. This happens every winter/spring and usually this is all cleared by now, but due to the weather conditions, it has been held back. No point clearing it all for another huge ammount to re-appear the next day.
However, this evening when taking the dog for a walk, I viewed the beach from the slipway in front of Fantasea, and work has started on piling the seaweed up with the JCB, with the truck parked up ready to take it all away. The beach north of Havana has had no seaweed problems, and has been nice and wide, and soon hopefully the whole beach will be it's usual glorious self, once the after effects of Mother Nature have been removed.

Hi, we arrived today and the beach is in a really sorry state towards Waves and where the bridge was (it's gone too). There's now a wall of seaweed between waves, Manthos and the sea which going to take weeks to clear. With half term next week, a lot of new visitors to SS are going to get a really bad impression of the beach, which will be such a shame.  The seaweed spreads as far down as. Mango before it stops.

Yes Tony, we're by Spiros bikes, please come in to say Hi, it's really nice meeting everyone!

A lovely sunny day today, started a little bit cloudy, but that soon cleared by lunchtime, leaving us with a beautiful afternoon, and a gorgeous sunset.

With regards to the beach, there is still a lot of seaweed, thanks to Mother Nature, but it is being cleared....we saw two truckloads being taken away today!
The bridge is removed at the end of the season for winter.....the stream changes course and size with the different weather conditions, so it wouldn't stay in place.

The beach beyond Havana is lovely and wide, and hopefully the seaweed issue will be gone soon.

Lots of people enjoying different entertainment tonight. Mistral was pretty busy, as their Greek music night proved popular. Condor guests were enjoying a Motown tribute, and there were people strutting their stuff at Bar 38's Latin dance night. Nice to see such a variety of entertainment, and of course there's plenty of other bars if you just fancy a quiet drink.

The beach to the right of us here at Vicky's is clear and today the water-sports guys look like they are trying to get the platform loaded.......

Will pop into Hippopots when we're over in July. My little boy used to always stop and wave to the dog last year when he went for a cheeky lunchtime pint at Glenns!

Lets hope that beach gets sorted out asap

Looking over the wall of Vicky's and yes the platform is now in place. The sunbeds and umbrellas outside Mango are almost full as well.
