Shocking scenes

Kasimiotis' Hotel: the remains of the covered dining area floor.
Until last Thursday I had not visited Kosta's beachside hotel since the storms struck in February.  The scenes of destruction I saw there on Thursday shocked me.  The hotel has suffered no damage but what have hitherto been its dining and play areas have been totally destroyed.  For years he has thrown a party there for Easter lunch.  I doubt he will be able to do so this year.  Indeed, he will be hard pushed to get the place ready for the summer season which usually begins on the first weekend of May.
In past summers I have often dined here at a table on the beach from where I watched younger,  fitter types play volleyball.  When I saw it last Thursday their pitch was no more than a depository for piles of smashed trees.
