... baby on the way. We stopped at a taverna by an amazing beach. The food was very average, the beer was good, the water looked several shades of turquoise & quite choppy, the sand was golden and Lance got a rusty nail through his foot. Luckily his tetanus is all up to date. The beach was located close to the islands airport. The planes were coming in to land what seemed like every couple of minutes. It was a lovely spot to cool off and watch the sea and ...

... places in the world that are this old, and you can just walk around them.

After Knossos, we decided to drive about the island for a bit - with a vague idea of making our way to Agios Nicolas. The scenery is quite spectacular - there are huge mountains, lots of rocks, some parts very arid, some parts very green. We see loads of fruit trees, laden down with fruit, olive trees getting netted for harvest, grapes on the vines and large numbers ...

... phone and tried to Google my way out (reception this high up is actually workable). I couldn't find a trail map, but someone did write something to the effect of "the trail goes up, then down into the plateau, then back up again." Fair enough, down I go.

I realized fairly quickly, though not quickly enough, that, if there is a path, that wasn't it. It was an unmanicured, treacherous, "swing the messenger bag around and climb down" affair. ...
