Chania, Crete

Crete is a very large Greek island with an interesting history. The apostle Paul was being taken to Rome as a prisoner. His boat stopped here, and made an ill-advised attempt to cross open water at an unseasonable time. A mighty wind blew them off course and they wound up being shipwrecked.

Our day in the beautiful port city of Chania, with its beautiful harbor lined all round with open air cafe, pleased us immensely. We met a Greek family visiting their college age son. We spoke no Greek and they spoke no English, but we managed to communicate, taking a picture for them and they for us.

We enjoyed a pleasant stroll through town, a delightful lunch, and snapped photos to our heart’s content.
