Having been without electric since 9.45am pleased to say at last back on & the wind & rain has died down.
Took a trip to Kanoni & was sad to see the big beautiful fir tree at the cafe at the end of the road has split in half nearly with big branches broken off the main trunk & crashed down.
Looks like that area took a bashing from the storms with several smaller boats half submerged.

Oh what a shame! Such a lovely tree. There are lots more clinging to the cliffside around the headland above the beach at the bottom of the Corfu Holiday Palace hotel. Many of them looked really precarious as it was. I hope they are still there.
I always seem to recall half-submerged boats there though. I thought it was done on purpose for some reason that I can't remember!

I agree what a day no electric in vitalades from 08.30 until 16.45(only good thing couldnt cook) but then couldnt do much as bad weather all day very dark read a book by torch and sat in front of fire, and as i write wind and rain back in full force (south of the island) looks like we are in for another bad night but been told weather will get better at the weekend lets hope so

Reading this I was thinking wow what a storm you must have had. Then got to thinking about how fondly everyone talks about the landscape which we all know so well etc. But I'm stuck at my desk (I'm a social work manager-you can imagine that's fun!) and I think sheltering from a storm at the fire with my book sounds like heaven.
I hope the weather gets better for you to the point where at least you have your electricity!

This has reminded me of one of the reasons we don't spend all winter in Corfu. It seems so romantic to sit by the fire and read a book but when its day after day it wears a bit thin sometimes.
Sorry to hear about the tree at Kanoni. Did you visit the new Starbucks while you were there?
