The Island Bus photographic Friday

It’s Θεοφάνεια today, Epiphany. Which means, the little harbour of Agios Antonios gets almost as many visitors as in summer.

All eyes on the sea, please

Well, not quite, but despite the howling wind a few people turned out to attend the ceremony of blessing the waters during which a crucifix is thrown into the sea and retrieved by a fearless diver…

… or a piece of string in this case.

Και του χρόνου!
