Botany lesson on the Magic Island

This year in March we had very- very warm weather (south wind, 25 celsius) and now at 15 Celsius we feel cold.Not much appetite to go out.But today afternoon we went for a drive and a little walk out and of course Geocaching .

First we replaced the box in “Sailing area” cache. But it was too windy to stay on the beach.

Then we drove up to Milatos cave where George checked Wind&Water  cache and we placed a TB in. After we visited the cave –again without proper torch- so we couldn’t discover very deep. Maybe we will next time.

On the way back to the car we had a botany lesson. Crete is a fantastic island. I am living here more than 25 years and I can still find marvelous things. Today was the Herbs day.

origanum dictamus( ερωντασ)

I am not sure what it is. It smelt like Origanum dictamus ΕΡΩΝΤΑΣ BUT….

We made a lot of photos and Juktas collected some herbs too. The tomorrow salad will be with fresh, green thyme. I can’t wait.

On the way back we placed a new box in the area.  When I go out I always find some special place to show to others. I don’t have to look for it, there is something everywhere.
