Info from Wikipedia:

      “Jonathan Livingston Seagull, written by Richard Bach, is a fable in novella form about a seagull learning about life and flight, and a homily about self-perfection. It was first published in 1970 as “Jonathan Livingston Seagull — a story.” By the end of 1972, over a million copies were in print, Reader’s Digest had published a condensed version, and the book had reached the top of the New York Times Best Seller list, where it remained for 38 weeks. In 1972 and 1973, the book topped the Publishers Weekly list of bestselling novels in the United States. In 2014 the book was reissued as Jonathan Livingston Seagull: The Complete Edition, which added a 17-page fourth part to the story. ”

Some photos from Chiliadou, Nafpaktos Greece. The last days of summer, farewell till next year.




The Byzantine Church of St Nikolas is situated in the village of Ano Gerakari.

This location has a fantastic view which spreads to the surrounding hills and the plain as far as the castle of Zakynthos.

The sleepy village of Ano Gerakari is still mostly untouched by tourism and is easily reached from the resorts of Alykes, Alikanas and Tsilivi.

The beach Gaidaros Just off the beach of Tsilivi. A part of belonging to the community of Planou and the other belongs to the community of Tragaki. The natural point that separates  it is a river that flows in this creek. A small hill also separates Gaidaros  beach from  Tsilivi beach. Located 8 km northeast of the town of Zakynthos.
Consists of sand and in some places there are a few pebbles. The water is shallow, warm and crystal clear.It is well organized with sun beds and umbrellas and  water sports. It is not very crowded and tourist traffic in the region is strong and which takes place just a few meters from the beach, is considered a quiet beach.

“A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.”
John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath
