Wet n' Dry

The unsettled weather arrived as forecast. We went for a walk up the old track from Arginonta to Vathy, an ancient route flanked by some truely astounding old olive trees, I can only guess at their age. A short way from the high point the promised 'shower' arrived and it absolutely hammered down! We made the road and the 1st vehicle to pass (going the wrong way) stopped and asked if we were OK. The 2nd vehicle - going our way, stopped and insisted we got in despite being like a pair of drowned rats! Great people these Kalymnians.
The next day was dry so we visited Black Forest - yet another crag I hadn't been to, amazingly the place was bone dry. That is a tally of seven wet days in 14 weeks.
