Island of Crete #3 – Photography

 We planned to drive east  40- 50 miles and had started well before sunrise. The main road running out of Ag. Nikolaos followed the coast and began to climb towards the mountains. We could see small islands dotting the sea in any direction you looked. This first photo is one of the larger one’s that lay only about 1/2 mile from the coast. A roadside sign said there had once been a Minoan settlement on the island, but we could see no sign of ruins at this distance.  The second photo is a small town that could be seen from the road after we had climbed into the mountains.
