Had a brief outing today. Just arrived last night. My digi cam packed up and had to use a sea & sea I've got but have to develop the film.
Hope the pics as not as crappy as b4 LOLOL
Film will be developped by Wed am and will post photos later on that evening.
However, next weekend (weather permitting i.e. not over forse 6) some Greek guys from the Forum and my self will get together (3 RIbs so far inc mine) and will go for a weekend trip to Serifos and get LOTS & LOTS of photos to show.
As you say in English 'Patients is a vertue' and as we say in Greek 'the good thing takes a long time to make' (hope I translated it right LOLOL)

all you'll need for the Uk is the following !!!! :

http://www.met-office.gov.uk/weather/europe/uk/radar/

the bl**dy rain radar to see when the next downpour is heading your way !!!

The met office web site can provide other trivual info such as sea state, wind, temp and even weather ????

How do you manage to be in Greece one minute and somewhere else the other, do you live in Greece ? Your profile says you are living in Uk ?

My company constructs, manages and operates bunkering and oil storage and distribution stations on a BOT basis.
We have our head office in Greece and we currently construct a bunkering station in the UK, and we are in the process of constructing another one in Egypt and an oil storage and distribution terminal in Cyprus.
I live in the UK but due to this business I travel a lot. I hope will not do it for long though. Is a bloody aufull way of living I can tell you.
Any way this is how the story goes.
Thanks for the site details. And yes they are forecasting rain tmo in Greece with gale force South winds but weather will improve by Thursday (so they say but I will wait for Poseidon site to see- more accurate)
My son was telling me on the phone about the weather in England when I was saying to him that I was suimming today he said that he was sitting rupped arround in a blanket at home LOLOL
Actually when I left on Sunday in Gloucestershire the day started at -3 and then at 13:00 it was 0.0 bloody cooold.

Been bloody cold here. Problem is Oldham seems even colder for me at the moment, having spent a week in lovely warm Southampton and Portsmouth. Got to college this morning to find it covered in snow.

Hi Mat, Snow is nice. You can go skiing!!

By the way Keith Hart can help me as I'm planning a skiing holiday for half term and had Sctland in mind. Been to Glenshee once (stayed at Blairgowry Holiday Park) it was nice but may be there is somewhere even better.


I think that this cold weather will catch up with the East Med as there is one cold front developing by Lybia drifting NNEwords i.e. Greece side and the one in the UK is short of coming this way too.
I just hope I'll be back to the UK by then. Houses or hotels for that matter in Greece, Egypt or Cyprus are not geared for cold weather and will freez my balls if I'll be here by then.
