These three pictures needs a special explanation.
It was a splendid light evening. Aproaching the island in our new super duper dinghy.
Anyway at the walls of the former fortress we find a two left behind, a bit desperate, Canadians.
They where locked in on the island. Believe or not.
They where facing an overnight on the island. Might have been ok, weather is not an issue.
But in three hour s there daughters was going to arrive at Heraklion, supposed to be picked up by the parents.
Dingy ride to the fancy restaurant in the harbour. Guess if they where happy.
And they will make it to the airport.
Kate and Mike, our new friends from Canada.
