Sunny Days, Clear Nights
18.15pm ... dusk and the huge orange full moon is already above the horizon.
Calls from kids down in town. Everyone is watching this brilliant spectacle. It's going to be even more amazing when it's really dark and the moon is hanging over the water.
We watch it clear the olive groves, rising above the hills
Meanwhile on the other side of the island the sun was going down, rays shining over the water. Out in the bay my grandson was rowing with the rest of the team in this glorious calm sea.
A strange phenomenon...
Sunset and moonrise concurrently.
For the first time in weeks the temperature was a warm 15oC, the sun was shining and there was no wind
Photos of a calm harbour
Little fishing boats and piles of nets on the wharf
I just heard the long term weather forecast. Weekend temperatures are going down to 5oC with more rain.
This winter is not over yet...
