This was our lovely view:
Pontikonisi (Greek meaning "mouse island") is home of the monastery of Pantokrator (Μοναστήρι του Παντοκράτορος); it is the white stone staircase of the monastery that when viewed from afar gives the impression of a (mouse) tail which lent the island its name: 'mouse island'.
The charming little Avra Taverna on the road to Benitses, was a perfect spot. We got to look at Mouse Island, drink a lovely ice cold beer AND watch the planes land!
[still having problems posting pics, but hey, maybe I'll just have to make short posts whenever I want you to see a lovely picture of the island! - or figure something out... yes-yes, I know.. Isn't a picture worth a thousand words?]
