#18217 Crete Nature Blog: Beachcombin'

Posted by Steve Daniels on 22 May 2015 - 08:49 AM

After last week’s somewhat strenuous hike through the Kritsa Gorge I promised you something a little more relaxing this week. I thought I’d bring you down here to Ferma Bay and we’d spend an hour or two wandering along the sands beachcombin’. An activity so laid back it’s too much of an effort to pronounce the end of the word. - See more at: http://cretenature.b...eachcombin.html
