Rain, sunshine, snow!

Or how the weather in Greece has become "British"
Yesterday started with heavy rain. When it stopped the sun came out so we decided to walk at the sea front.
It was beautiful!

 Of course we had to stop at our beloved Zongolopoulos umbrellas!

 Seagulls were having fun!
 I took postcard photos of our landmark the White Tower.
And of the Statue of Alexander the Great!
There were hundreds of people walking.
This guy was singing beautifully. He was from Ireland I think.
 His umbrella shone in the sun light!
 It was fun taking photos contre lumiere!

While returning to the umbrellas I spotted someone putting something in front of them.
 He was a local artist selling souvenirs that depict the umbrellas.
 I had to take photos.

 And I also bought the colourful ones on the top picture. They had to be colourful!

In the evening during and after our performance it started snowing.
And this Sunday morning we woke up to this. Ok it isn't much. But it is our first snow this year!And it is very very cold!

 Barca had to try the white cold snow!And she seemed to like it!
