The Slow Travel Moment in Crete

Cats, dogs, babies. There’s an overdose of cutesy pictures of all of them on social media channels. So here’s a duck.

Duck, Agia Lake, Crete

A man-made lake on Crete proved the perfect setting for a couple of Slow Travel moments, appropriately as our remit was to enhance a Slow Travel holiday. The setting was scenic; the mirror-like lake backed by a decorative cornice provided by the White Mountains, snowy white against a typically blue Greek sky. The noises from the local wildlife put smiles on our faces; from strange bird calls we couldn’t identify to the manic laughter of ducks.

As well as the ‘don’t you eyeball me’ moment with a protective duck, there were proud little egrets with limited patience and a friendly little mongrel who joined us for a while during our early morning amble around Agia Lake before he toddled off to snuffle among the reeds.

The pace was slow, and the company eclectic. All in all, a perfectly relaxing start to a day of exploring the west of Crete.
