This video was made mid of september 2018, and the little potami creek still had a lot of water after a longer no rain period. The video shows my walk all the way up from the Potami beach area to the bridge close to Tsourley and not far from Lekka. This time I went on through the creek some hundred meters, and saw a great part of this little rivers – I’ll be back next year! On my way back, I passed the little monastery until I reached the street above the bridge again. From there I took the way back along the western side of the creek through Tsourlei and after ca. 15 minutes walk I climbed down again to the beginning of my water walk. All in all a ca. 3 hours trip.
