is upon us although we’re lucky enough to be enjoying some autumn sunshine and the sea (I’ve been told) is warm enough to swim, I’m not that brave!
Most places have closed for the winter and everyone is busy getting ready for the cooler months, the sound of chain saws can be heard and olive nets are down. Friends have the opportunity to catch up after a summer of work and some familiar faces leave for a winter else-where.
Personally I love this time of year, having left the island for a short break I was so happy to be back.
