Re: Anopolis/Aradena/Marmara then Loutro

In the past couple of weeks I have walked the Aradena Gorge both up (from Marmara to the bridge) and down (from the bridge to Marmara). When going up the gorge I walked the path that bypasses the ladders. When going down the gorge I went down the ladders. A few comments on the ladders / by-pass area...

Re: Anopolis/Aradena/Marmara then Loutro

Noah. I agree with Micki. I don't believe that the ladder bypass (what I call the "steps") is a good alternative for someone who is unhappy with heights. The steps are narrow and go up to a considerable height above the gorge. At some points the best view from the steps is a long way down ...

Re: What happend to this forum?

I disagree. If someone asks a question, it gets answered. Look at the recent thread in the books section. And some of us, including me, rather like the "diary" stories. They tell me things I don't know. They show me pictures of places I haven't been. Certainly they show me a green Sfakia a...

Re: Mouri - Kavros- Georgitsi / Chora Sfakion (May 2019)

An interesting thread for me. I did this walk in August. This was the first time in several years, and I had some difficulty when I first entered the pine forest. But let me start from the beginning. I'll get to Kavros in a bit. On this day I started from Loutro, walked to, and up, the Illingas gorg...

Re: News from Loutro

KV & All. Of course we all have our preferred places to visit and stay in Sfakia. I have been to Loutro almost all years since 1986. This past summer (2021) I was talking with someone who is the 3rd generation (during my time) running one of the restaurants in Loutro. I have known him since he w...

News from Loutro

I haven’t been to Sfakia for 3 years. I missed the summer of 2019 as well as 2020. So, changes I’ve observed took place sometime over a three year period. There seems to be a consensus that Loutro is busy this year. Not all the rooms are full each night. But, boats – the Sweetwater and Marmara boats...

Re: Is this forum “dead”?

Of course the forum isn't dead - as the responses to the question indicate. Erno has continued to answer questions, and provide information. He's done a great job through a difficult 18 months, and counting. I'll be in Loutro in a couple of weeks. I'll let people know what the situation looks like t...

Re: Bad news about the beach webcam

I believe it would be possible to raise the amount of money needed to purchase a new camera, and pay other ancillary costs, to keep the beach webcam operating. If the folks in Sfakia are willing to install the camera, and basically keep it running, it is not unreasonable that those of us who enjoy s...

I've got a picture. It's great to have the webcam back.

Thanks very much to everyone who made this possible.
