I gotta get me a baby goat!

I wanted a dog until I met a goat. They are the cutest, cleanest, nicest animals!

Milk from the bottle, not even the cats eat like this!

My neighbor Eutixoula (they are hers)

Pops with the goat.

Me trying to feed them.

SCUBA Diving in Kalathas

This was the spot we chose because the other place was windy and wavy!

I tagged along with my new friend Yianni who was getting his PADI Open Water Certification

Here is Nikos the instructor (left) with Yianni

Getting ready for the next dive

Coffee in Apokorona and Various Other Pics

Coffee @ Liakoto Art Cafe in Vamos, Apokorona. The place has an outdoor area with an amazing view of the Lefka Ori Mountains and the Village of Vamos.

Me on the ledge hanging out.

View of the Lefka Ori Mountains

After coffee we walked around the village. It has a very rustic feel to it and many of the houses have been restored so the village is very traditional looking. It was one of the most beautiful villages in Crete that I've been to.

Beautiful doors (shout out to Lenz)

Stone walkway...

Traditional olive oil press

Lemon tree (san ton antho tsi lemonias!)

My aunt had some old pictures in her house including this one of herself

And this one of my grandparents (father's side)

And off topic the avocados are great here (shout out to Artemis and Aliya ;)

Sembronas (Σέμπρωνας) in the Spring...

The sign on my grandfather's coffee shop.

Our skeleton house waiting to get some meat on it!

What you talkin' bout Willis?

Hanging with the homeboys.

My uncle's sheep thinking I'm going to feed them..PSYCH!

Take a look at this cock! (Get your mind outta there!)

This is the poor victim who will be on my plate tomorrow, Easter Day. To all my vegetarian friends forgive me.
