Last day before the return

This is it, last day in and around Sitia before the return journey.

Earlier we went over to Mochlos which is about 45 minutes from Sitia if you drive "like an old woman" which according to old woman Mary, I do! Mochlos is a lovely little village which is basically a few tavernas on a small rocky peninsula, which means a perfect excuse to get the drone out again. Quite pleased with the photo above which really picked up the undersea rocks coming up to the tavernas.

I was made suitably jealous here as while flying the drone around an Australian chap came up for a chat as he had been flown out to Crete to film the Minoan archaeological site on the small island opposite Mochlos itself. His drone is similar to mine and I paid to get here myself while he's getting paid to be here - not fair!

 The Minoan excavations at Mochlos. I flew over there in a fit of jealousy!

As an aside, I'm starting to suspect that drone-geeks aren't actually all that far removed from train spotters as on the whole they are a very keen lot and always come over for a chat if they see one flying.

We finished the day with a trip up to another village at night for a local festival they were having which was basically an excuse for them to consume impressive volumes of raki, listen to live Cretan music, and have a good old dance. And it was an excellent night and a great end to the stay in Crete.

Tomorrow the return starts - Sitia to Heraklion to the mainland again, then off to another ferry and over to Italy.
