Up early, trying to capture the sunrise and amazing skies over Spinalonga peninsula in watercolour from the huge terrace of our apartment before bread and honey for breakfast.
Then a 5k walk to Plaka on backroads, even spotting some late orchids along the way.The last 3k was on roads along the coast seeing all the superposh new developments.
Seeing octopuses pegged out reminded us of Gerolimni and Gythion and we had a delicious lunch at the Taverna Spinalonga overlooking Spinalonga Island ( as in book 'The Island".)
Heading back with clouds looming , a couple of kilometres down the road, we sheltered in a metal(!) bus shelter opposite this colourful shrine while the gods threw around copious lightening and thunderbolts which then cleared to sunshine in time for us to be rescued by a taxi driver!
