Sunday, 24th June:

We had already noted times for buses to the other key parts of the island we wanted to explore.  We woke up early as we knew it was going to be a hot day and we wanted to relax in a different part of island.  We intended to catch an early bus to south of island, in a place called “Chrysopigi”, we walked down to bus stop and asked the local Greek who was waiting, whether the bus was coming.  She didn’t seem to understand and told us to wait for the bus in the centre of town, so we decided to walk up the steps away from the road-side. 

Whilst walking up the steps, we turned out and saw the bus appear – realising that it was the one we wanted to catch, again, how annoying.  We knew we couldn’t run to catch it – after all, it was pretty warm already! We decided to go back to the main town centre in any case and review the bus times again, and made sure we were clear as to which ones we had to catch there and back.

We then went back to the room, waited in the comfort of the cool air-conditioned room, as we could see bus come down from “Artemonas” from our room.  We saw it and managed to catch it this time, again the journey was only €2.40 in total – so pretty reasonable indeed.  Apparently children are the “conductors”, whilst the mother/father drive – very family orientated, hey?

We arrived at Chrysopigi, and walked down the steps for about 20 minutes to the church which was on a overlying piece of land – very good view, clear water and beach around the corner.  We took some photos, relaxed, and then decided to go to the beach.  Found a nice spot to enjoy the sunshine.  We went into the water for a swim but realised it was very stoney!  So instead of diving in, and potentially injuring ourselves, we decided just to relax on beach sands instead.  Wise-choice!!  We had a couple of frappes in Taverna – only €2 per frappe – so even cheaper than the town. 

We then returned back to hotel, rested (napped), then decided to got to Kastro – by bus.  We left at 15.00 for the 10 minute journey, and arrived at Kastro.  Big mistake – very surprised as nothing really to see or do.  Bus was infrequent, so had to wait around in café for 2hrs 30mins.  One of studio options was to stay at Kastro – luckily we didn’t do so.  The only thing to do in Kastro was to visit the Ancient Wall, which was simply involved a 20-25minute walk around the site, and back to where we started again.  Hmmm . There was a beach further down, but it certainly was too far to really be worth it – especially in the sweltering heat that we found ourselves in.  So we decided to just relax in the café just near to the bus-top and wait for the bus to appear in 2hrs time!

Having returned around 17.30 in Apollonia, we refreshed ourselves and rested again.  We decided to locate the other Taverna that we had been recommended to visit, and finally located it.  Was pretty good, pretty reasonable again – can’t complain.  We then went for our usual frappe coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice in the café/bar we visited yesterday – and then after an hour or so, we returned back to apartment to enjoy the rest of the evening.
