    Hi Coling, we've been experiencing the opposite - it's been one of the coldest winters ever recorded in Thassos! Bring your skiis and let's climb Ipsario. ;)

    Hi Augie . Any chance of resurrecting the "Beach Sweep" now the season is nearing - so much to see like the progress made on the new builds along the front - the umbrellas that will soon be sprouting along the beach - so much to see :) We are coming again in July ( for 20th time !! ) Thanks again for all you are doing - the quality of the web cam image is also so much better.

    Hey Tone! Coming to Thassos for the 20th time this year?! You're a true veteran! :)

    As a way to honor our dear veterans, we activated the beach sweep for 3 times a day:

    1. Morning Beach Sweep @ 07:35
    2. Afternoon beach sweep @ 12:35
    3. Evening beach sweep @ 19:35

    Thassos Time (GMT+3)

    Congrats on your 20th visit to Thassos this year! That's impressive! :wink:

    Hooray! Thank you for bringing back the beach sweep ... and loving the extra views! Summer is coming :-) It will be our 11th visit in August. Not quite such a veteran as Tone, but we're working on it!!

    You're welcome, Ellie. :) You're on your way to becoming a super Veteran like Tone! We'll need to create a Hall of Fame soon!

    Oh no ... just as places are starting to put chairs out, and open up for the season, the camera goes off line!!

    Hi Ellie,

    You won't believe me at first, but this is actually a good thing! I'll tell you why:

    In 2019, faster internet speeds have come to Thassos and, last week, we completed the application to upgrade the webcam's dedicated internet line. It looks like they are in the process of upgrading it today. Yay!

    Slow internet speed is why the camera sometimes keeps buffering. It also prevents us from streaming the Live feed in High Definition (because the connection isn't fast enough to support it)... even though the camera is HD. After the upgrade, we hope the internet connection will be fast enough to stream HD video therefore offering even clearer views of Golden Beach! We're also supposed to see less buffering with a faster connection. *fingers crossed*

    Hi Augie,

    In that case ... hooray!! All is forgiven! We look forward to seeing our favourite beach faster, bigger, clearer, and all ready for summer! You do a grand job ... thank you :-)
