Kefalonia
This page starts with four pictures of the quay at Patras, where travel to Kefalonia begins on the ferry.
It's the largest of the Ionian Islands of Greece, and
the ferry first brings you to the small town of Sami.
 Sami is probably known better as the place where "Captain Corelliís Mandolin" was filmed - a quiet, serene
 town, its waterfront strung with tavernas, and with plenty of yachts in the marina. Outside the town, the Melissani
Cave
is a subterranean sea-water lake with beautiful blue water, accessable by boat. I have included some pictures
 of swallows nesting in amazingly difficult places. They fascinated me! The main town of Kefalonia is Argostoli,
situated on the tranquil Gulf of Argostoli, where swans swim and the waterfront doubles as a fish shop. 
While there I happened on a funeral procession led by the town band - a solemn occasion. To the north of
 Argostoli is the pretty village of Fiskardo. Itís a haven for yachties - once I counted seventy yachts moored along
 the waterfront and in the bay. Itís a picture-perfect place which wasnít devastated by the earthquake of 1953,
 so the old Venetian buildings have been restored and repainted. Laid-back tavernas line the waterfront
 and beautiful mansions stretch along the bay. A rich personís paradise.
