January 2017

Monday 1st - Another bad flu has taken down much of the island as we head into 2018, including me, so here are a flux of photographs over the past week.

Friday 5th - We've had some equal doses of wild and mild weather this past week. Beautiful blue skies and sunshine amidst some very strong winds, strong enough to stop the ferry schedules.

Saturday 6th - Below - Epiphany celebrations today with young men diving into the waters around the island to retrieve the cross which blesses the waters. Click Here or on photo below for more pics.

Monday 8th - Late yesterday, the sun started to come out again, so here's hoping for some sunnier days ahead. It's been quite grey so far this winter.

Below - On Saturday the Council had it's New Year's Pie cutting ceremony.

Thursday 11th - Dirty skies during the day and brilliantly colourful skies at dusk.

Monday 15th - More rain and more rain. It's been the rainiest winter on Ithaca in some time with only occasional sunny patches that you'll miss if you blink.
