Drove to Milia, parked at the bus stop and walked down to the beach,
strolled the beach and walk in the forest to Kastani,
another beach stroll,
up to the main road and back to the car.
With my strolls it was 4,55 km. and took nearly 1 hour.
Saw some glimpses of the sun, mostly clouded,
and around +14C.
A lovely day on Skopelos ;o)
As usual the excellent Christmas Day Lunch
was at our British friends up from Kambos
We were 7 adults, 3 doggies and some cats.
We were served turkey as well, sorry no photo,
and brandy butter, – I love it!
I walked to and from and I got to see
the fantastic Panselinos
coming up sooo red!
Photo did not turn up right,
so I hope you saw it too!
Christmas eve is normally the big dinner for Norwegians, but since my mom does not go out at night I make a JuleLunch! The menu more or less the same every year, mostly Scandinavian – traditions and good memories!
REMEMBER to enjoy the full moon – Panselinos – tonight!
Peace on Earth!
& some of my 4-legged friends and more

brought it with him in 1833.
I can not remember to have seen any here
my 1st Xmas in 1983, but slowly it appeared.
Actually I did not see much Christmas then at all!
Here are some of my olds photos of X-masses;
I am lucky, I believe I live on top of the world!!! – at least at top of Skopelos. Down in front and top right is Skopelos, and between them you sail in to our beautiful town.
