Our next drive took us down the very rugged peninsular of Mani. This area in
history is know for its internal feuds and darted about the mountainside you
can see houses of a fort like structure and castles.
We spent a couple of nights in Neo Itlo Bay by the stoney beach.
On walking along the coast we were joined by a lovely stray dog we called Eris.
She didn’t leave our side for 24 hours.
After a very steep drive around Mani we were caught in a storm on the
mountainside. We sat the storm out off the main road we headed off again up the
east coast greeted by a beautiful rainbow. This was the first rain we saw in
Greece. It was quite an epic storm.
The next stop took us out of Mani to Valtaki beach, near Gythio. where we
camped just off the beach next to the Dimitrios shipwreck. You could walk right
up to it and peer inside through its rusty shell.
