    Guess what another storm on the way, a fierce one gusts up to 40mph so we are staying here in Sifnos until it has all blown over. It’s a nice island a bit dead, as lots of cafes and restaurants are closed now but the small port is still awake. We have done couple of trail walks since we arrived along some old donkey trails and paved footpaths, the views have been incredible. Day 1 we walked on a trail on the north of the valley from Kamares the port to Apollonia, the capital, then to Artemonas and down to Kastro before returning via Artemonas to the port. We were walking in total for about 6 hours but the walk was only graded 1-2/5. Photos 1&2 re view back to port and of capital respectively. To day we walked from the port to the capital using a route on the south side of the valley this one was graded 4/5 and the beginning was steep then after the cave it became very steep until the old village and mine before swallowing out when we were up on the ridge then down down down into town. Photos 5&6 show the view from near the top and the start of the walk and the cave about 3/4 of the way up, respectively. Photo 3 if you can see is of the view obviously but behind the ridge, in the distance are three Monastery’s two on hills one just behind ridge. Photo 3 is of an old shepherds bovy I think that’s the word, either for the shepherd or the goats or both.Read more
