Rodakino View on Koraka Beach
The weather was a bit better but still not great. It was warm but very windy and we decided to drive around by car for some sightseeing instead of going to the beach. But we packed our swim suits in the car since you never know how the weather would be later ;)

Our first stop was at the cliffs above Rodakino where we had a beautiful view on Koraka Beach and the Lybian Sea.

Sellia is a nice village from where you have a great view on Plakias. Not far from the village you find the Kotsifou gorge. The road goes right through it. A little church has been built into the rocks there.

Plakias was the destination we've choosen but we drove a dertour over the mountains to see some other villages aswell. Mirthios, Mariou and Asomatos were their names.
Rodakino
I like those tiny villages. They have  a special atmosphere.

Finally we arrived at Plakias which is a busy and very touristic village. For some reason I was happy I haven't booked a hotel there. It was too crowded for my taste. We strolled around the taverns and shops a bit and around noon we decided to go to the beach since (as I hoped) the wind calmed down.

It was a lazy afternoon on the beach. Just relaxing, swimming and sun bathing. Awww, it was awsome :)

At 4 p.m. the wind got stronger again and I felt like sandblasted by the little pebbles on the beach. We packed our clothes and drove back to Rodakino.

Klaus has read a review about a restaurant in Frangokastello and he was curious to try if it's as good as they said. To cut a long story short, it was ;) I'll write a review later.

But before we went to the restaurant we've been to the beach for a beautiful sunset. In Rodakino you can't watch a sunset due to the mountains around. I was very sad about it. I love sunsets :) At least I saw one there. It was a very nice one ;)

After dinner we stopped again to take some photos of the floodlited castle of Frangokastello.
