Statos Ayios Fotios

Now that the weather has cooled down its time to get the old Hiking boots on. Our first hike of the season started near the Kolios winery just outside the village of Statos- Ayios Fotios .

The path which drops steeply, leads down to the old abandoned village of Agios Photios where photographs were still attached to the wall and jackets were still on their hooks, it gave it a spooky feeling.

The old church was still in good condition and looked to be still in use. A number of home made wind vanes, made out of sticks, nails and cigarette packets dotted the path.

The hike back up the mountain is steep and several water breaks were needed.
At the end of the hike we nipped into the winery for a couple of bottles of wine.
