Epiphany on Alonissos - 6th January 2009

The Epiphany church service took place in the church of Agia Paraskevi in the morning as usual but due to the poor weather conditions the blessing of the water ceremony at the harbour front in Patitiri did not take place this year.  Dave went down to the harbour at 9.45am just as the tables were being put out with the rain coming down and with a cold wind blowing.  Dave retired to the Cave Bar for a coffee to view proceedings from a dry veiwing station but when joined at the next table by the police and coast guards in full dress uniform he decided there was not to be a ceremony today and went off home in the rain.
