    Good morning all! Experience? No, I am not a seaman! I can hardly swim! Our friends of Neapoli (the town opposite the harbour, on the mainland) took us for a very pleasant trip round the island. (Thank you again Poly and Panaiotis for your never ending kindness. ) They told me stories and showed me places that only local people know. I have been trying to have our friends here on holiday in Italy, where I live, but they are so much in love with their country......

    11feb18-- Károly, It is almost painful we have to wait until the next business day to see the newest uploads. I anticipate your newest captures. Paul Louis, I thank you for your words of experience, there is nothing better than first hand knowledge. Tides can be anticipated , winds are another thing, not at all predictable. Many brave souls risk their selves helping these unfortunate sailors. Hats off to them.

    Sam I see I do not know what it is. It can be a ship too.
    But this machine specifically packed sludge and worked again today. You'll see.

    The old fisherman worked the night shift. It must be because the cats are hungry! :)

    Paul Louis! You are lucky and thank you for the information. (I'm envious your experience.)
    Sam! We both like the harbors and the the old fisherman and the sea. :)
    Not likely because of machine on the truck packed earth. I do not know what's in the lower right corner.
    I did not mix the pictures! :)

    It's easy to be in trouble in that area. The water is shallow and if the wind is strong, it may take you off course and there is a risk of touching the bottom. We went around the island with a motorboat (almost flat keel) and we had to pay attention not to touch the bottom in front of the port.
    It's so pleasant and relaxing seeing places where I spent many days on holiday. Thank you for this. Have a nice weekend.

    8feb18--How the both of us were watching this same feed as the sailboat was in trouble is quite the coincidence. But this seem to have jump started you into uploading into 'photos'. Might I suggest from your burst pipe capture the machines were removing the boat from the water ( right lower corner ) ? EnJoy EnJoy

    Probably a pipe break on the street. Machines and people are working.

    A sailboat at the port entrance is in trouble. :(
    The boat is rocking. Many try to save, but the wind is strong, and darken. I'm rooting for him!

    Thanks for that Paul. I will spend a little time planning a trip for next year.
    It looks good for sitting back and watch the world go by, once again thanks.

Elafonisos

Elafonisos is located on the southeastern part of the Peloponnese and belongs to the prefecture of Laconia. The population of the island, which is a few hundred in the winter, is almost doubled during the summer. The island is a tourist attraction with a peak in August.

The current name Elafonisos is owed to the extensive hunting that took place in the region since ancient times, and, as mentioned by Pausanias, there were many temples of Artemis in the region and especially existed many small-sized red deer. Besides, the famous statue of the goddess Artemis in the Louvre Museum, which holds such a deer has been found in the region.

This beautiful island is especially known for its unique and very clean beaches. The most well known of all are the two beaches of Frank and Sarakiniko (Simos) in the south side of the island. Until today, Elafonisos is the main passage of ships to the eastern Mediterranean.

There are many various accommodation types and categories to meet all demands that guarantee unforgettable holidays in this beautiful island.

Cultural events take place in early July celebrating the integration of Elafonisos with Greece (with the release of the Ionian Islands) and the celebration of the inauguration of the church's patron Saint Spyridon. In the last week of August, several events take place in honor of the fishermen organised by there association.

The Elaion Apartments offer rooms which are situated near the beaches of Simos and the Island of Panagia. All the rooms are designed with a particular architecture based upon the relaxation of the visitors. The hospitality their main service which will definately impress you.
