Milos - Sunday, Arkadia islands from Firapotamus

Early start and no morning stop as some in the party needed to be back in time for the afternoon flight. Very calm conditions in light SW winds. About 10k paddled. Starting from Firapotamus

Trachilas Stacks 


Out round the headland to the Trachilas Stacks

Heading out to the islands

Chatting to Ben, about the Burbage edges (near Sheffield) amongst other things

then across to 'Big Akradia'

Sliding past a not very hospitable shore

round the back of both islands

A fairly neat boat stack

to land at the 'port'

A rare site

Outside the church

Lunch at the church, then up hill to explore the lighthouse, before walking back down to the boats - one or more dolphins chasing fish - maybe a tuna?

Bimbling along waiting for the ferry to go by
