To the Top of the Horio

A better start to the day than yesterday, although we still had a few spits of rain on and off through the day.
After a slow start to our day, we went off into the village. Passed this dense tangle of spider's web on the way - there are lots about at the moment as the insects proliferate. Swallows zipping about feeding on them as well.
A good year for pop music! 
Just two bollards in this set. 
Lovely jasmine flowers at the Olive Tree
Walking out later on this afternoon, I was taken with the trunk of one of the palm trees in our apartment complex.
Chickens parading past. 
There are poppies everywhere at the moment. 
We saw the sign for the Two Fishes house, so thought we'd see if we could find it further up the mountainside.
Passed this hanging on a gate - not sure of the significance, but guess it's to do with an occasion if some sort.
The coquillage outside the Two Fishes
On another door - something to do with Holy Trinity church/monastery (if my Greek alphabet reading and Google searching is correct).
A view into a ruin
 Looking over a church courtyard.
Someone loves this house. 
We came across this series of lizards on the path. Sue & Gerry had told us about them leading to a house, so we decided to follow them wherever they took us.
Passed these nasturtiums just going over past their best. 
We got so high up that we could see three bays at once - Nimborio, Yialos and Pedi, as well as being able to see over to Datca in Turkey - a great vista.
Turkey was really clear today. 
 Liked these seed heads.
We found the lizard house! Then we carried on folowing the painted lizards in the other direction which took us down onto the main drag in Horio.
More paintwork that has seen better days. 
This day a year ago, we found ourselves back at Eftalou beach on Lesbos towards the end of the day.
