Crete – July 2010

August 8, 2010

I have been lucky to spend 2 weeks in Greece – in Crete – this summer.

We stayed in a place called Agia Marina near Chania, where we rented an apartment in a small hotel near the coast and beach. We also rented a car for some days and went around in the western part of the island.

The landscape in the island is very beautiful. Mountains, small villages, gorges, olive trees, sheep – and beaches:

Here a look down towards Falássarna on the westcoast:

Down the mountain you see some of the millions of olivetrees in Crete, and in the bay are many greenhouses – and a wonderful beach.

This beach is on the south coast near Plákias. The water is clear and nice for a cooling swim.

The beach in Agia Marina was more crowded:

So I preferred to go there in the evening. Here my son takes a look at the beach before sunset:

A star shines brigth from the night sky after sunset:

In the following posts I will show some more glimpses from a very nice holiday in Crete.

And some will be posted in Scott Thomas’ Assignment 8: Travel Photography: I hope some of you readers and fellow-bloggers will join this too (before September 8, 2010).

    Oooh, you ARE lucky! My parents went to Greece and were completely blown away by its beauty. Some day I will get there! 🙂

    Thanks for the comments! And yes Isa, this is written by my left hand – I really wish I was lefthanded (but I am NOT!) as my right elbow is rather bad with a stubborn infection, so I can not use my right arm ;-( . I hope the doctors soon find an effective treatment….
