On the bus on the way back to the apartment, I suggested on the spur of the moment that we get off halfway at the Kanoni stop. On our way into town this morning, we had seen from the bus a small island off the coast and were eager to explore it as this would be our last chance to do so.
Pontikonisi Island means ‘Mouse Island’ in Greek as, viewed from afar, the island gives the impression of a mouse. It is more widely known as its English name.
The fact that the church happened to have a peacock on its roof just added to its charm too of course! This is the third time this trip that we have seen peacocks in the wild, the other two being on an island off Dubrovnik and near Ohrid. I am still as intrigued by the feathered animals as I was the first time.
