44. Retired Walking Friends

Exploring the hiking trails around the village of Tsagarada, on the Pelion peninsula, mainland Greece when we came across a stone hut nestled in a grove of chestnut trees. The Pelion peninsula – about two hours north of Athens – has amazing hiking. Thick groves of enormous chestnut trees cover the steep hillsides. As you descend, the forests give way to stony groves of gnarled olive trees, tamarisks and lemons, until you finally arrive by the sea. This country cottage sported windows with drying shoes – shoes that appeared to have been forgotten months ago, left on the window sill.
