Paxi
Paxi is a little gem. The next Ionian Island down from Corfu, it attracts day-trippers and yachties who love
 its tiny main town of Gaios. It's another Venetian remnant with pretty, colourful old buildings. The protected
waterfront is a mass of boats of every description, and the main square, with tavernas surrounding its pink church,
 is particularly attractive. My photographs include street scenes, some odd little shops and faded facades of the
 old buildings. Pix no 1060 is an interesting remnant of World War Two - an aero engine now propping up a
 fig tree! The last pictures are of the pristine blue waters of Antipaxi, the tiny next-door island
with the amazing
Blue Cave.
