No I was caught in a storm in Corfu Town, plenty of places to stop off but I was on a schedule so had to push on. Many umbrellas turned inside out with the wind, which gave me a smile. For the first time ever, I watched as a ferry left the port only to turn back after reaching the open sea, just goes to show, its not just the airport that is susceptible to the vagaries of the weather. I was only watching because I thought to myself glad not to be on-board.

Do you mean the one that started before daylight on Sunday 5 October and lasted until mid afternoon on Tuesday 7 October?  Yes, we got caught in that one. 

Sunday morning we sat on our apartment balcony hoping it would stop.  In the afternoon we drove over to the west thinking it might be better over there.  No such luck.  Coming back via in inland route we parked up in Acharavi.  After a cold, wet walk along the main street we stumbled down a side street into a taverna.  Ta Rebetika had a log fire going and we were soon warm & dry.
 
Monday we stayed local in Kassiopi.  We called to have a cup of coffee with Joanna at Melina Bay.  We then took a wet walk up to the supermarket in the square and the bakery for sustenance.
 
Tuesday we drove over to Paleocastritsa which appeared to be deserted.  We then drove up through Lakones and stopped at the Golden Fox because our friend was on her first visit to Corfu and every Corfu visitor should see that view at least once. The view was still worth seeing even in that weather.  We came back over Troumpeta and dropped into Roda for a late lunch.  Whilst we were en route the rain had stopped and the sky started to clear.  By the time we got back to Kassiopi the sky was benign & blue again and stayed that way for the rest of our holiday.

Are we there yet?
We've been and come back but we're going again.

First snows of the winter on the tops of the Albanian mountains this morning, definitely feels a bit chillier up here in the north.

Been a lovely day here in the NW, though a little chilly when out of the sun. x

If there is rain where I am in Corfu, I chase the sunshine. We had rain the year before last. It looked sunny in the north, so we got into the hire car and found the sunshine. Bliss! I appreciate not all hire cars. But hey, just a thought. Two weeks tomorrow and counting!
I just love that Corfu feeling!
