Skiathos (even more)

05 Oct

As anyone who has visited here before will know we like Skiathos !…. my previous post even indicated that we enjoy spending time at Kechria too! But we have fantastic times just getting there…

Part of the route although dirt tracks is quite smooth……

But then speed is not our aim, there are so many different views to enjoy on the way!…………

We stop here every time, it’s quite odd that this scene has such a hold?… there’s so much here, the colours in the water, the different tree lines, rugged coast and the mainland in the distance, even Chrissy feels the need to become a landscape tog!….:)

Just a little further there is another turn around the headland and another series of views, this is the first view of Kechria, another picture we can’t ignore not just because there is a bench here upon which to rest after that hard drive!…..:) the larger beach is Ligaries and the next one around the coastline is Kechria behind which you can see the valley that contains what we know as “The Magical Forest”……….

At the bottom of this hill is another stream that we always park by and have spent hours just ambling along…

capturing moments that we haven’t experienced anywhere else, Damselflies mating?…

But Kechria is calling and that cold Mythos is very tempting, so it’s time to visit Argiris again!…..

No doubt once that thirst is slaked we will be off hiking up that valley in search of more of the local wildlife!…….

Mmmm….. doesn’t look THAT wild does he?………:)

Then a little further up is this little fella that is surely saying “what are you looking at”!………..

That’s not to say that you have to travel miles to spot wildlife in Skiathos, in fact when we arrived back at the apartment this spuggy was there to greet us sitting on the roof catching some sun himself!………

Which reminds me, dragonflies do like to perch somewhere sunny, but at Eleni they do seem to like to be by the sea-side just as much as we do!………….:))

    When will you be ready to retire there? It sounds like it is your paradise.
    Wonderful to see.
