Finally, after one hour and a half, we got sight of the ocean,
and soon after we sat down in the
clear water. So, as you see, we managed get down the canyon to the
The Beach.... Not exactly what we would call 'child-friendly',
but on the other hand - if you
don't care were you jump out into the sea - there was no problem.
But we cared, and had to look for an easy place to get out into
and found it on the upper left side - but watch out for the sea-urchins!
Nice and 'cool' - just about 25°C.
Then, it was past noon, and time for a nap under one of the many
Actually, once there must have been a lonely farmer settled down
because the outher flat part of the river-bed was an olive-grove.
Later on we realised
that there was old fruit-trees on the left side looking upward from
the sea, and
further down the coast we sighted a small cottage (farm?) a little
What might once have been a small farm (?)
But it wasn't easy to see that small house on the rocky coast, here
southwards, but you can
still see it, if you look carefully just above the stones in the
water out to the left.
Further away, below the farthest coastline, you might also see the
Agios Dimitrios, where we stay at night.(light colour).
Also here, way away from anything else, you can find the ever growing
Right now, have forgotten its name, but will come back....
Just wondering from where it gets its water - which we believe it
just must have!
It's a funny thing - but to walk back is not
exactly the same as walking down.
First you do see everything else now than when you went the
other way, and second - another funny problem arises:
We broght along 3 litres of water, my wife
had 1/2 liter, and the remaining was in my sack. Now, how
2-1/2 litres of water is much lighter carrying down the canyon,
than a sack with only 1/2 liter and no food, when you are
going the other way back?
Big quiz! Do you have the answer?
Nothing to win, except for an email saying 'thank you for
Now, if you have not understood it yet, we do think you will if
you go up this canyon,
why it is important not to do it in the middle of the day, when
the sun is right above.
Going back during the late afternoon-hours, gives you some shadow
here and there.
But don't forget that when the sun goes down, soon after 7 o'clock,
you will be
lost wherever you might be, because of the darkness. To be sure
to get back that very
day, we also recommend bringing a flash-lamp or two.... You never
know what comes up.
You might even spend a lot of your time down here to watch all
