When if I am spending most of the time in Crete relaxing, swimning and enjoying the sun I have done a few tourist things. Like going on a bit trip. The day I was actually going the trip was canceled due to too much wind. But on the second try the weather was on my side.
The boat went out to and around an island just outside the coast that is now a nature reserve. People are only allowed to go out there for one day of the year. The island is the home to the Kri Kri goats that are very important to the creatans.
On the boat trip we had two stops for swimning and snorkling. The first one was in a lovely little bay. The water was very lovely.
After the first stop a diver that had been with the boat came back to us from a diving trip to show us what he found in the sea.
He found a few sea cucumbers, a brittle starfish, sea urchin and some shell. He did let them safely back in to the sea after he had shown them to us.
He also found an octopus. I sat quite near when he showed it to us and much to everyone elses amusement it squirted ink all over me.
Hope you’re all enjoying your week!
