"Its been reported all over the UK and countries around the world, including France, Italy and US that men and woman have been abandoning their daily lives and normal routines.

Woman are arriving late to work, housework is no longer getting done and the evening meal is now a hurriedly made plate of burnt toast with baked beans and stewed tea.

Men are hiding in their sheds pretending to be potting on garden plants and the lawn mowers around the world are standing still, silent in the middle of half cut lawns.

The reason for this downing  of chores around homes across the world is all down to a woman that lives in the north of England. Known to many as Aunt Teen, this lady has single handedly caused the world to stop functioning.

So what did she do? Well, Aunt Teen found a webcam and published it for all Paxos Nutters to see. Now, instead of working, these people are glued to their computers and phones, watching a webcam of Lakka on the beautiful island of Paxos.

So let this be a warning to all the people out there. If you love to watch yachts as they sail into a harbour, watch as they drop anchor, and watch as they jump into dinghies to come ashore. Or, maybe you like to watch people swimming in the stunning blue waters or sunning themselves on decks. All this you can watch as the water changes colour, and the day moves on and the sunsets. Yes, you have been warned...turn on the computer at your own peril!!"

Thanks so much for this, I have been looking all day, it even looks nice now in the pitch black, you forget how dark it gets so early on.
Will be there on Monday so maybe get a shot standing in front of the webcam  or staggering up the hill in the background!!!

Pssst, I'll whisper very quietly, Ionian Island Holidays have a webcam on one of their properties overlooking Loggos!!

We can all enjoy your boating skills next year Malcy.

Apologies for more distractions, though the Lakka one is poorly at the moment.

If anyone was watching the Loggos cam this morning between about 9 and 11 UK time and happened to notice a strange-looking creature swimming slowly below the cliff on the far side of the harbour between chimney beach and the little jetty with the light, don't worry! It was just Mike out for a good long snork!   
I wasn't lost - I was just taking an interesting detour!

Ask him to do an action replay!  How about tomorrow morning around 9am (11 am Greek time)? I'd ask you, but I think you might still be drying out!

Haha! Feeling much better now. If all goes to plan, we'll both be on Levrechio tomorrow morning, so no webcam moments. However, if Tuesday night turns as messy as I suspect it might do, he may be alone in the harbour again on Wednesday morning!

I've just had my morning look at the Lakka webcam and was sad to see hardly any boats or other activity. I guess that's pretty much it for this season.
I assume the cam will be switched off at some point?
