March 2001 - Our "Worst" Day On Siphnos

The coldest and windiest day we spent on Siphnos, a day on which people apologized for the weather, was a spectacular day for hiking along one of the coasts

Walking down the "road" to Kastro Inside a church Icon Maggie lighting the oil lamp with a candle.  This picture shows the oil lamp paraphenalia one finds in nearly every church, including some paper on which to wipe one's fingers
Kastro on its hill.  The little harbor is to the right.  Kastro is at the end of a long valley that runs down from the old agora.  I cannot help thinking of invaders, in the dead of night,  creeping up the hill with swords to slay the inhabitants.  Old cemetary on the way to Kastro entrance to the cemetary We don't know what this plaque we found in the cemetary means, but we'd like to know.

Below Kastro the water was churned so white that it looked like milk Heading back to Kastro Kastro house Kastro in the distance
