I released this message in Greece off the island of Kefalonia during a kayak trip.
I was kayaking and camping with some friends from 10/28 to 11/1.
This is a wonderful coastline. We got our equipment from Monte Nero Activities. This is a great tour company on the island that has top-notch equipment and guides. I highly recommend them.
Like most of the Greek Islands this featured stunning coastline with a huge variety, cliffs, caves, beaches, rock, sand you name it, they had it.
We paddled along the West and North coasts and saw some great sites.
This time of year many things were shutdown, it was cool, but not too cold. In the future I want to go a little earlier in the year to get in some diving, and enjoy some lunches at the seaside tavernas that dot the coast.
Highlights were some of the amazing cliffs and caves.
On day we saw a mother and baby goat stuck in a pocket of rock on the cliff. Hopefully they were able to climb out, or the shepherd was able to go out in a boat on get them. I can't imagine how they got there, see the picture. There was a funny sign posted, which one of my greek friends translated nearby. "Don't shoot the goats".
Some of the beaches were really cool and remote, the only way to get there is by water.
I did a bit of fishing, but like my last trip to Greece didn't catch anything.
I was able to get a few nice meals after the trip, but was disappointed that I didn't find any goat on the menu.
I tied a huge pile of sandals and shoes that I picke-up on the beach to the bottle to attract attention.
Truth: Sunshine wams the soul and the body on a cool day.
