KEFALONIA

I begin this page with five pictures of the waterfront of Patras, Peloponnese, Greece, taken on my departure for Kefalonia, the largest  of the Ionian Islands of Greece. The ferry brings you to Sami on Kefalonia, the site of the filming of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, a quiet, serene place, its waterfront strung with tavernas. 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. Have a look at the catch of the day! 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. It’s a haven for yachties - when I was there I counted seventy yachts moored along the waterfront and in the bay. It’s a picture-perfect place which wasn’t devastated by the earthquake 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 person’s paradise.
