Saturday 25th - We could'nt wish for better weather as we head into the Ithaki Spring. 20C yesterday made us all feel like summer isn't too far away. Today Greece celebrates Independence Day with marches and parades around the country. Pics of Ithaki's parade will be coming soon. Meanwhile enjoy some of the wonderful scenery from around the south of Ithaca island from Gidaki to Sarakiniko.
Independence Day Parade all around Greece today to celebrate the winning of the war of Independence, but here are some photos of Independence Day Ithaki style.
