Canyon road Rethymnon - Plakias
Plakias was just a fishing jetty before, it was mentioned first time in 1961 when it was recorded to be a village with six fishermen having a permanent home. Few decades ago tourism found its way in here and today there are many resorts with houses and hotels. Suprised that there was still now three supermarkets and some taverns open! Very calm and nice place to stay for several days.
I was parked many days along the beach and noticed that there are quite a few foreigners living here all year round. I had chats with some of them like an English man, Swiss man, Dutch man, Belgium man, a German lady who we had a good laugh about the common things that we two shared. Maybe we see another time and make some walk together with our doggies in this area. Then I met this happy Irish chap who was just enjoying his first days of pension, beeing a free bird now ;) and an English poet who was in Plakias with his van too. By listening the people, locals or foreigners who lives in this country and culture, we can learn so much new things! They mostly always make my day ;)

Each evening the sunset was fabulous! As the sun sets here behind the see, you could see it well, viewed from the place I was parked.
