The story behind this image

During our two week explore around the eastern half of the Mediterranean island of Crete in September 2017 my wife Liz and I made only one visit to most of the places we saw.

However, there were just a few locations that we made two or three visits to, as they were so lovely.

The seaside village of Mochlos, on the northeastern coast, was one such place.

A relatively undeveloped spot, right by the sea, with lovely views both around the seafront and out towards a small island just offshore, dotted with Minoan ruins.

Walking along the beachside path I came across this beached fishing boat, its vibrant colours glowing in the bright sun and set beautifully against a twisted tree with the azure waters of the Mediterranean and that little island in the background.

Just a lovely little tableau that really gets the relaxed Cretan vibe across nicely!
