crete again 4

gps in Aptera, it enlarges about 4 times.   The logger did not record the full walk

A free day!!   Peter had a larger breakfast:  the red wine last night was not as innocuous as the white!   Still cold indoors, went out to the shop and bought food for today and tomorrow’s lunches.   Walked out to Artemis where a dog attached himself to us and then towards Angeliki, but could not find a direct way through.   Saw an old lady collecting snails and were barked at by a dog at almost every house; our dog went home.   Photographed a magnificent Dracuncularis vulgaris and met Sue in her minibus.   Had an ice cream and came home for tea.   Walked up towards Aptera and saw one of my favourite photos in an unfavourable light, must go back tomorrow morning.   There were lots of cats at the 'Cat woman's' house, but no ‘Baby’.
