Yes it was good It was on 1st October during our relaxing sunbathing!

On the 3rd we had a partial eclipse.

We were a little worried on the 5th (ha ha).

 I can understand why you were worried....

On the plus side Dotty, when someone asks 'I've heard Crete can be windy' you've got the perfect illustration!

Thank you Dotty

We got to Plakias a few days after this event and  I was hoping someone had taken a photo of the twister as everyone was talking about it.

I experienced the same unsettled weather in Petra, Lesvos on October 1 (but no mini tornado), which was apparently Greecewide. Someone told me it was the remains of Hurricane Rita.

Incidently, that holiday provided an extreme example of packaged holidays being cheaper than booking independently. I was there for 3 weeks (singly) and the room rates were a mix of 35 for the days in September and 30 for those in October. Convert to , add 175 for the airfare and 50 for the transfers makes 730. I paid 256 (Manos) and before someone says I must have got a bargain at the last minute, I booked over a year before travelling.

While there I met someone who was in Plakias in May, staying at the Lamon Hotel with Kosmar and gave an extremely bad report of their room and the hotel in general.
