    Calm waters of Koroni harbour
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: I guess we were well and truly hooked by Koroni. Such a lovely place to wind down, have a drink, make it two, as there's always something worthwhile watching and you don't need to be anywhere in a hurry.

    Feed the fish in the harbour with your left over bread, you'll be transfixed by the feeding frenzy you cause. The fish were fairly leaping out of the water as we watched. There are also some larger fish who come and bask in the close to waters of the harbour. I don't know what they are, but the greeks were very excited by them. They all immediately threw handlines out, hoping to catch one.

    Simply enjoy life passing you by, you can't beat it!

    Fondest memory: Eating at the tavernas and watching the fish swimming in the water just a few feet away from you. Wandering the back streets.

    Storm over Koroni

    Keeping Dry

    Favorite thing: Again, Koroni in 1993.
    This is where we watched the lightening across the bay from. Very impressive.

    Fondest memory: I always like seeing the octopus hanging to dry. Koroni was no exception.

    2008 we had another terrific thunderstorm, with horizontal, purple fork lightening flickering every few seconds. Most impressive. It is almost as if Koroni has more than one weatherfront. The wind would blow from all directions, often at the same time, then disappear comletely.

    Closed Symposium restaurant in Koroni.

    Favorite thing: Watching the world go by. Sitting on the waterfcront, listening to conversations we didn't understand, watching the locals at work and play, smelling the wonderful aroma of Greek cooking, eating and drinking way too much and so on....

    The lovely buildings and back streets with flowers everywhere.

    Fondest memory: All of the above. We particularly liked watching the Greeks having a go at fishing every so often, when time permitted! There were always hand lines hanging in the water, tied to various establishments.

    Another memory was of the delivery boy, balanced on his scooter, carrying three boxes and wearing flip flops. He made the journey time and again!

    Something we noticed more than ever this year was the use of mobile phones. It's even reached the older folks, all sitting with their mobiles on the tables. Someone was always on their mobile, wherever you were.

    No schlepping here.

    Fondest memory: Having lunch at O Kalkelarios Taverna. We enjoyed feeding the cats with spaghetti(nothing left of anything else!!) as we hadn't seen a lot of cats this holiday.
    Also enjoyed grilled Octopus here.

    Colourful Pots

    Fondest memory: I just love the Greeks use of every available container, painting them bright colours and filling them with colourful flowers. The street near the castle was very pretty.
