One of my favourite coastlines, the spectacularly stony and stunning Plaka, pure paradise!

In the early morning hours, when many of us are cursing - oops! - I mean, hitting -  the snooze button for a few more precious minutes of sleep, before facing tedious traffic on the ride to work, this fisherman in Agios Nikolaos, Crete, has just finished his shift, and quietly docks his boat next to the only other vessel on the shore, until his next traffic-free trip out to sea.
Seaside dining, is in itself, very appetizing, but so are the views from Plaka. In the distance, the island of Spinalonga, the Venetian fortress that subsequently became a leper colony in 1903.
