Agios Theologos .Sunrise, sunset mmmmm







Agios Theologos twists and turns out of Kefalos to the furthest point North West, although famous for Sunsets is equally spectacular in the daytime with its tiny bays, rugged headline and choppy waters. Patchwork terraces of small fields mapped out by stone walls litter the landscape. Wild terrain of volcanic origin, covered in wild thyme and oregano spreads as far as the eye can see until it too becomes edged by azure sea and red rocky outcrops.
Goats amble across the road and geckos bask in the sun on vertical rocky surfaces. Bee hives merge into the landscape and bide their time until the August harvest and the honey festival.
Little blue and white churches built in the apparent middle of nowhere stand testament to Greek Orthodox beliefs and family values. I can’t help but notice these things as I make my way to the only Taverna at the end of the road. I chose sea bass today simply grilled with village salad and potatoes roasted in olive oil, lemon juice and rosemary finished off with the most delicious Ravani and ice cream. mmm mmmm heaven. And as I sit there paying homage to all things Greek as if from nowhere a Priest arrives to share in homage to sea bass today simply grilled with village salad and potatoes roasted in olive oil, lemon juice and rosemary finished off with the most delicious Ravani and ice cream.
Mmmm mmmm heaven.
