Stormy skies

By jocas
After a lovely sunny day sailing this snuck up behind us; we just knew we were going to get wetSad the wind howled and the clouds opened ( even a few hail stones) as we approached Thasos main harbour-fortunately it was short lived and by the time we were moored up the sun was out to dry us offGrinGrin I don't think I would be so keen on sailing in a cold climateSmileSmile
Thank you for all the votes and comments on my 'hope it holds' knot and a special mention for Pete( civitas) who very kindly awarded me a uaGrin
Take care and have fun everyone.

We seem to have brought the Sun home with us Jo' Smile hope we've left enough for you though Smile
Those Clouds look VERY threatening though and you certainly have captured the mood and atmosphere perfectly.
