Fanari trail

Today in temperatures approaching 30c we took to the Fanari trail in Kefalonia. It's a steep, hot start until you reach a small chapel where after a couple of minutes the track levels out.
The trail is wide and wooded on both sides with occasional views down to Argostoli bay and across to Luxouri.
We had a short break at a newly finished lookout surrounded by litter. There are rubbish bins all around but still litter is everywhere.
A little further on we came to a memorial for murdered Italians during the 2 nd World War. Murdered by Germans no less.
The area is quiet and thankfully well kept and rubbish free.
We missed a turning and joined the coastal road a bit too early which meant we had longer to walk before reaching our favourite coffee stop. We wasn't disappointed, it's the best coffee on the island.
The VW owners club were having a rally at the camping ground and surprisingly we spotted a few U.K. Number plates.
The coastal path into Argostoli is flat and scenic with quite a few elderly locals taking to the water to cool off.
In the town we decided to get a taxi back to our villa €7, where we were greeted by a 4 legged visitor eating the plants.

That all looks very agreeable, Alan.

Blue skies, good refreshment stops, lovely scenery... hard to see a downside really. Enjoy every minute.
