EretriaAugust 21, 2018 in Greece ⋅ 🌙 26 °C
We have spent a lovely few days here on Evia the second largest Greek island, it is NE of Athens, we ran this way to escape some heavy winds but they moved north as well but all OK. We stopped at Panagia a bit further south for a night before getting here, it’s an enclosed bay but surrounded by relatively low lying land so not affected by the Meltemi, the strong afternoon wind, as much. We are headed south again tomorrow to fuel and water up before the Cyclades Islands, I have been reading Dave Cs Facebook posts as he has just spent a holiday there so have some ideas which to visit but any other thoughts gratefully received. On the list so far, in no particular order Paros, Santorini, Kynthos, Delois.
While here we visited the local ruins there were quiet a few a theatre, temple, gymnasium, and village but they are just stones amongst weeds though you can’t help but be impressed with what they built in BC. On Sunday night we ate out and visited a taverna that we had walked past previously as John had seen the spit roast. Well it looked like there were two spits of lamb ( whole ones) and then others for chicken and pork pieces.
The town is reached by ferry from the mainland, with push me pull yous, roll on roll off ferries that you drive on one end and off the other they are driven in both directions so don’t need to turn around.Read more
