PANORAMA - Paleokastritsa Bay
And then we landed in Corfu. This was totally out of our original plan. But, it was a creative way to keep moving. Plan B now included a four day stay in Corfu, a flight to Santorini with an overnight there, and then an early morning ferry to Sifnos. Which is where we are now, but back to Corfu.
Call us crazy, but we like to stay out by Mouse Island and the airport. Mouse Island is one of the most scenic spots in Corfu town and the airport can be very entertaining. Yes, it's a bit loud, but so fun to watch the planes land and take-off from the causeway in the middle of the approach way to the runway. We have gone there for years and it's just a silly thing that we enjoy. Our hotel balcony had a great view of the runway. It was especially nice at sunset.
Our long walk into town included a stroll along the coast with nice views of the old and new forts. The markets are always good in Corfu and we visited all of them. A stop at The Liston on the Esplanade was
also a must.
Paleokastritsa is one of our favorites. It's a beach town with a scenic overlook complete with a monastery and numerous peacocks. We took the bus from Corfu town and spent a wonderful day there enjoying the area. A trip on "The Yellow Submarine" was a nice cruise along the rocky coast and included some underwater viewing of the local reef and fish.
All went well with our early morning flight out of Corfu and in to Santorini. The next morning we were on the ferry to Sifnos. This is my special island and I just love being here. It's the BEST!!! Next stop, back to Santorini and then to Mykonos.
