Day 12 Down to the new 'motorway' to St Nicks

We had been told that the path to St Nicks had been upgraded over the winter. As we had not walked there last year we had no idea how bad it was.

Someone had said it was now like a 'motorway! and now having walked the path, and driven the M25 in Surrey, I can see the similarity. Only difference is that the only services on the St Nicks motorway are at the end!

But first a picture around dawn.


Then after a walk to Pedi we set off.



It was now a very good path.





Some people were getting there quicker!


As the path climbs slowly all the way it is still quiet a drop down to the bay.


We found our favoured lounger and had a nice day on the beach. We even managed to walk home!

Day 11 and another new beach for us.

We are now getting towards the end of our holiday and we decided to spend most of it on beaches.

Last year we did not visit Nimborios so it was on our list. A quick walk down the Kalistrata and we were just in time for the taxi boat.


When we arrived the beach was almost empty so we found a longer and settled in for the day.




We had lunch at the taverna and came back on the last boat


It was a very quiet day but we enjoyed the beach.

Day 10 Around the town

Yesterday V had a couple of really bad Mozzy bites and was feeling a bit fragile.We had planed to go out to Nanu but it soon became apparent that we were not going anywhere today.

V returned to bed and I set out to walk the Kateractis.




On the way round to the top I redid some of the pictures from yesterday with the light better.

Then it was down the path. Very different from the Klistrata. Also I found it much harder. No shade rough and always on a slope or steps.






By the time I was at the bottom it was time for a drink and a snack.



Anyway by the time I got back and had a rest V was feeling better and we went out for a walk up the road to the cemetery.
