Warm and Spring-like
It's official. We have the virus. Schools are closed for 14 days. No concerts, theatre and no spectators at athletic matches. The owner of top Greek soccor team Olympiakos has tested positive for the virus. So have Tom Hanks and his wife. They appear to be self isolating down in Australia.
Coffee shops are still open and as busy as usual here but elsewhere people are staying at home.
Hey, what to do with schools closed and the sun shining. Lets go swimming. Only the crazy side of my greek family would and did do that. A picnic on the beach. Good idea. A plunge into the freezing Saronic Gulf? Nothing to them. They have been plunging all winter.
A deserted cove.
Fun in the still-winter sun
Watched only by a herd of goats.
