Hidden away in the Saronic Gulf of Greece is a tiny Island that covers approximately, a mere eight square miles. However it is eight square miles of un-spoilt beauty. This magical island is called Agistri.

Barrel washing

Similar too many of small Greek islands Agistri does not have its own water supply, all the water used is brought in by boat.
Therefore water is a well managed commodity.
Because of this it is commonplace to see barrels left on the beach like the one in this photograph so that the seawater can wash out any residue that may be left in them from local wine making.

What a lovely shot. Wouldn't that make them salty though? They obviously have it sorted though!

And, if this was Cornwall... a whole differant story! Smugglers and ship wrecks! Has the imagination running. Good catch!

Thanks to all for your wonderful comments.
As for the pirates and smugglers, for those that are interested here's a little more history of the Island....

It appears that at the end of the 17th century Agistri was abandoned, most possibly because of the frequent pirate raids in the area to which a small island such as this was particularly vulnerable.

In 1821 the island was inhabited although the population was too small to be mentioned in a census of the time. By 1835, however, a municipality in Agistri was formed by Royal Decree and 248 inhabitants were mentioned.
Here endeth the history lesson.
Your comments are really appreciated - Thank you.
