Crete: Day 4 - Agia Roumeli

Day 4: (April 5, 2013) - Agia Roumeli
On this day, the plan was to explore the local environs, including the ruins (above) of an Ottoman fort overlooking the entrance to the Samaria Gorge.  The history of this place is ancient.  Even 4000 years ago, it was a prosperous timber town.

I had to test the water, and it was really nice.  We were the only people on this beach.
