Around Crete: The old port of Heraklion

Oh, it's been a while since my last post about Crete! I'm so glad I had an excuse to grab my camera the other day and stroll around my favorite spot in the city, the old port of Heraklion. The evening was so peaceful and serene, the weather was warm with a subtle wind blowing from the south (south in Crete means the sahara desert and a southern wind actually means a really warm to hot weather). Even the sea was so calm it looked like solid. In the old port lays the old venetian fort of Koules and from there on extends and 5km long jetty, the perfect place to walk, jog or bicycle and let the troubles sail away. B and I grabbed a couple of cold beers and sat on its wall to enjoy the endless blue view until it was dark enough to tell the sea from the sky. I hope I can pass on to you some of the serenity of the evening through these images. If you ever visit Heraklion, let this walk be among your plans :)
