Kannaviou Countryside

Published 26th of April, 2019

You could be forgiven for thinking that the Ezousa Valley runs from the sea to Episkopi Village. But it continues below Letymbou all the way up to Kannaviou. And guess what? It's just as lovely up there.

The Reservoir


Let's start our exploration at the Kannaviou Dam. Now, you might be growing tired of looking at pictures of dams, so I won't feature too many shots. It does look pretty though. In the far distance, you can just make out a red dot that is Alex. She went to the other side to see if she could find the overspill.


She also had a look around while she was there...

Still a metre or two to go before the overspill is breached. Hopefully in the mean time we will have found a better angle from which to photograph it.

Meanwhile, I stayed on the near side of the reservoir. I was following some croaking frogs.

These reservoirs look so, so different when they are full(ish).

Ezousa Washout

On our numerous visits to the dam over the last few days, we have also taken the opportunity to explore the countryside between the Asprokremmos and Polemi. How had the rains affected the Ezousa Valley? Was one of our hidden picnic areas still intact? Could I even get from Ezousa to Kallepia, like I had done on a previous blog? Would I rescue some German tourists? The short answers are badly, ish, no and yes. For a more in-depth discussion, read on.

A couple of years ago we stumbled across a sad little memorial at the mouth of the Ezousa River. We thought we would check it out again a few days ago, to see what the area looked like after the rains. The question was, how would we get to it?
