Easter weekend in Corfu

 Easter Weekend in Corfu.

This weekend was Easter here in Corfu, so here are a few photos of how we celebrated........Saturday night is crazy in Corfu town,  many people travel to Corfu at Easter to join in the celebrations, and the town is the hub of it all, we took the more relaxed route to town to watch the Easter fireworks and listen to the sermon 'Christ has Risen".
On my good friend Tom's yacht.

                              Leaving for Corfu town from Gouvia Marina as the sun begins to set.

                                                           Tom, our laid back Skipper!

          At anchor in Garitsa bay, close to the New Fortress in town, where they set off the fireworks.
                       Tom, lighting the on- board bbq, with his faithful collie Ronja looking on.

                                                   Looking across at the New Fortress.

                   Fireworks, and you can just see the silhouettes of other yachts anchored in the bay.

              It was a wonderful evening, good food, good friends, fresh food and relaxed conversation.

Easter Sunday, and I had decided to ask a few friends round for a small bbq and roast lamb ( traditional for Greek Easter) that I would do in the oven.

                                                          My garden, ready for guests.

 Everyone brought meat for the bbq and a salad or sweet, plus of course beers and wine. Once again it was a lovely relaxed day, although sweltering weather to start.

  Then, luckily we had all eaten,  a mini tornado blew through the garden bending the umbrella and scattering leaves everywhere, and it began to rain!! But it did not last, everyone stayed on happily till the evening, when the temperature was perfect. What a glorious day, and many thanks to all my dear friends for making it so.
