Gialova




Having visited Pylos and Voidokilia beach, we stopped at Gialova, a small village on Navarino bay to have some lunch. Near the village is the Golden Beach, known as Divari to local people, a narrow sandy strip separating the sea waters of the Bay from Gialova Lagoon, a Natura 2000 location that has been declared 'a place of particular natural beauty'. It's an important bird habitat and is furthermore the only location in Europe where the African chameleon is to be found.





We had our very late lunch at Ela's the restaurant the one on the left of the photograph above




 
We could see Pylos in the distance.
 





The mural of the jazz musician on the first floor of this house was just behind us.






There are some very young olive trees, but others, like this one we came across on the way back, are ancient.




 
Their twisted, gnarled trunks are wondrous
