Friday Day 13

Delboy was up early again to get the beach towels out lol

The island in the distance (the name eludes me at the mo) has now appeared at it's best all holiday

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  00113

The sun wasn't quite up yet

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  00616

but coming up now

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  00914

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  02013

Love this time of morning, pity it's always early lol

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  02218

after breakfast I'm going up on the ridge to walk to Panagria by the route I know lol and that's up passed that castle looking place, by the way, they do have a dog but it can't get down to you lol

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  03013

the beach down below is getting into full flow for the day

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  03413

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  03315

remember after the castle type place, it's the first left hand track going up into the mountain

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  04419

it goes on for a long way and continues to rise but any walker should manage it with no problems

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  05213

The views just get better and better

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  05313

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  05514

I can honestly say I have not been on a better walk

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  05613

if you do attempt it, take that bottle of water

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  05714

I can even pick the harbour building up at the far end, unfortunately with a little heat haze

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  05917

The building above is at the far end of the bay on this picture

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  06117

so now on the ridge you can see the terrain it's still going up at this point

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  06217

zoomed in on some of the houses and apartments

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  06413

but how it looks for real

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  06714

looking back on the little harbour or Fisherman's Bay as it's called

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  06812

and down below

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  07015

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  07115

the path continues towards Panagria

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  07213

a bit of fencing here to save you falling off lol

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  07513

beginning to leave Golden Beach and the valley can now been seen

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  07615

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  07715

a bit more of the beach as we leave it

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  08114

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  08214

Looking back, the path turns away behind and now points towards Panagria

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  08514

and we see Panagria for the first time nesting in the side of the mountain

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  08714

It's downhill all the way now

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  09013

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  09114

Saturday Day 14

It would be my last day here, not wanting to use the bus or anything and had enjoyed the walk so much yesterday, I decided to do it again lol, but this time be for the sun came up, as I wondered if the light would make a different to the camera shots.

So up at 5.30am the sun hasn't risen yet and the dog is still asleep as I pass the castle place

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  00915

The 100 metres up the road taking the left turn up the mountain for the last time

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  01114

had I timed it right could I get a good way up before the sun strikes the mountainside

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  01312

yes its hitting the mountainside now

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  01816

and Golden Beach is just waking up

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  02014

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  03014

I saw my first snake, a black and brown coloured one but it saw me first and slithered into the undergrowth before I could get it's picture, Hans did tell me some snakes are poisonous out here

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  03114

I do have a blurred picture of a goat that also scattered into the bushes, one wonders whether it's the snakes mother coming out lol

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  03214

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  03617

I wondered if people would recognise their accommodation from up here

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  04014

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  04114

this walk is so exhilarating

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  04618

and the views stunning

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  05411

that I would recommend doing this walk if you are reasonably fit

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  05614

Delboy stands tall lol

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  06414

trouble is it's difficult not to take hundreds of pictures lol

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  06513

Mrs Db sleeping peacefully down there almost in this shot lol

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  06616

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  06715

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  07716

The 5 star Alexander Boutique hotel where some of their rooms have their own little swimming pools in the back

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  08011

and now round to Panagria

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  09213

blimey Delboy's early this morning

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  09714

and back for breakfast at 7.45am

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  10312

so our final day is a beach day

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  11212

lunchtime was at Playa D' Oro

with that last cheese pie

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  11712

a last Greek Salad

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  11814

and a cat to help out, come on Delboy, I won't see you for another year

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  11512

then back to that old beach again for the afternoon

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  11914

This evening I had booked a table at the Enavlion for our last meal

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  12113

We shared the stuffed mushrooms as a starter with bacon and cheese they were very nice

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  12312

for my last meal I had Fillet Porto, a fillet steak done in a port sauce it was the best lol

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  12413

Mrs Db had chicken rolls which she said was also delicious

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  12512

and of course a free pudding each

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  12612

Sunday Day 15

That dreaded day when holidays have to come to a end and the coach for 7.45am came at 8.00am

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  00114

where we had one more pick up and it was straight to the harbour for the waiting ferry

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  00313

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  00414

And it was goodbye to Thassos

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  00617

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  01614

might see you again next year then Delboy

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  01817

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  02514

the ramps come down and the reps get ready to guide you to the coaches

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  03316

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  03414

Then back on the same coach for the airport

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  03816

Now hands up who drank from the Kissing Fountain and who's just coming back anyway

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  03916

our coach was the first to arrive, so no big queuing problems like we had last year, bag drop off were in place and with the boarding passes the guy just used a ruler to rip them in half lol

However, our takeoff was delayed as the pilot had to go out and inspect whether the turning circles to get out was possible as the planes had been packed in to tight lol

Greece, Island of Thassos, 2014 part 2  04217

a very long wait at Gatwick to get the carousel number for our baggage but hope you enjoyed seeing our virtual holiday as much as we did doing it


over and out lol

oh didn't know you were in Rhodes yet Boss, and didn't know you had been to Thassos before, no wonder you wanted me to try somewhere else. Mrs Db has rebooked it, it is becoming cosy for her in this resort lol

I've only seen Thassos through your eyes DB . . but I'm sure we've seen it all!.
I lovef your goat pics btw . . amazing
. It's like my image of Heidi!

Its lovely to find a place that resonates with you . . wr have discussed ? Stoupa for next year
. again
I always worry that things will have changed. . The Mani region is very special, but as I can't see myself driving out here . . it limits activities

The goat pictures are that moment when you wished you had a camera and as mine never left my hands on holiday it was there. However, I left it behind to carry some water back from the supermarket one moning and the fish van arrived with every fish you could imagine including octopus. The next and only time I saw the van was on a Sunday and his stock was very limited  Shocked

Thanks Jen, Mrs Db says they are too long but to me it does give the true feel of the walks and without throwing in lots of pictures it's difficult to describe them
