This picture was taken while walking at the port of Lakka, next to the boats.
Lakka is a village of Paxos Island that can be found 14 kilometres south of Corfu, 20 kilometres to the east is Parga on the mainland of Greece.
Paxos covers an area of some 19 square kilometres and is one of a cluster of picturesque small islands set in the Ionian Sea. Paxos has no airport, can only be reached by ferry boat and therefore, has been able to protect itself from the strain of modern tourism. Paxos is an island of endless olive groves and Anti Paxos one large vineyard. The eastern coastline of the islands are gentle compared to the west coast which are bold and abrupt, with caves, arches and shear cliffs.
There can anyone in summer rent a boat and reach every coastline of the island!!

Geia sou Agni,
i nearly forgot that you have been to Paxos, so you have to show us a lot of beautiful takes, as this one here.. would have liked to walk there too..back in the distance we can see the mainland, Epirus, i guess..
over there we had several times our vacations, but we didnīt manage to get over to those beautiful islands of Paxos and Anti-Paxos, a pity a si can see now..
thanks for sharing, and i will follow you, filika Bernd
