leaving crete

The mountains got a fresh layer of snow overnight, and for our remaining hours in Crete, we were searching for sunshine and cover from the wind. Our first stop at Matala beach was violently windy, so we continued south to the beach at Kaloi Limenes. It was a long winding pass through the mountains, but but gave us the afternoon sheltered from the wind before heading north into the rain and to the airport.     

After this preview of summery sunshine and a start to the hiking season, I am hoping winter will have ended by the time we land.
