Big waves in Amorgos

The biggest waves I remember seeing in Katapola bay

Exeter City Football Club - the Grecians

"It was a tale of two penalties as the first-half drew to a close at Blundell Park, before the Grecians were later reduced to ten-men when Kane Wilson picked up two yellow cards."

Why are Exeter City Football Club known as the Grecians?  There is an answer here   - the Siege of Troy was re-enacted in Exeter in 1726.

The Express Scopelitis approaching Naxos on a windy day

The Express Scopelitis, the small local ferry running between Amorgos and Naxos, arriving in Naxos on a very windy day.  I've travelled on the Express Scopelitis in a very rough sea, with the waves lashing against the windows of the lounge - but perhaps not quite as rough as this.............................!
