What's New On Ithaca Greece
Holiday on Ithaca!
So much to do on Ithaki at this time of year. Boating trips, scuba diving, kayaking, excursions, exploring and walking, yoga, pilates, reiki and more, all under a blue sky on an island surrounded by the Ionian sea.
Tuesday 26th - Perfect May weather. Not too hot, not too cold. Ideal for being outdoors. Below - Kioni.
Above - The oldest building in Kioni.
Below - Aetos Bay.
Thursday 28th - There's something very calming about Vathy in the early evening, watching the light turn to gold as the sun sets behind Kathara, leaving a warm glow on the bay.
Friday 29th - The sun is back out after a couple of days of drizzle and grey skies, but the windchill has brought the temps down quite a bit when you're standing in the shade.
Below - Home made ice-cream from Rementzo Restaurant in Frikes. A new addition to their menu and one I'm pleased to see. All natural. The perks of being asked to take photos of food is that I get to eat it. It was delicious!
Below & Above - Afales. The water always looks so translucent when the wind blows.
Above - Was quite shocked to see that some of the lovely trees around Taxiarchis (3 in fact) have been scorched by a burning off fire way too close to the trees. It doesn't take the brain of a rocket scientist to know that if you light a fire under a tree, chances are the tree will get set alight. I hope someone got the appropriate slap on the wrist for this. Besides being thoughtless, it's also very dangerous.
Ithaca, the Gem of the Ionian
Above & Below - Kioni Bayside.
A few yachts in the harbour, the occasional bus tour and Day tripping boat, but other than that, it's peaceful and idyllic right now.
Thursday 28th - A bit of rain yesterday and a cooler temp of only 21C. Hopefully will look up again for the weekend.
Friday 29th - As we inch closer to June, a time when more and more people will be coming to Ithaca, businesses are putting the finishing touches to their appearances.
Below - Fiorendino Cafe and Bar in Frikes is the yachting hotspot for the village. Famous for it's Big Wednesday parties, breakfasts and snacks.
