Day 8 Pontikokastro

It was another fantastic sunrise with the sun now coming up behind the hill the other side of St Nicks and not over the Turkish hills.

After a bit of breakfast I took a wander up to the Pontikokastro. Going up past the windmills I got a different view of the harbour.

I had a good look at the massive stones that make up the walls of the Pontikokastro.

Moving further up the ridge is a great view of earthworks with Symi behind.

Then it was back to the apartments for a drink then down to Yialos.

Each time we walk down the Kalistrata we seemed to notice a different detail. This time near the bottom I noticed how one of the ruined buildings had some fine cut stone reused in its frontage.

What looks like stone above these finally carved stones is concrete that has been cast to try and imitate the molding of the carving.

We pottered around the harbour did some shopping.

Before going back to the apartment and an afternoon on the beach at Pedi.

The civic centre is 60/70s brutalist. Took a quick walk around the building while on Tuesday night beer run.
