Kassiopi Corfu pt1

We have flown to Corfu for a week in the sun, hopefully! Leaving the rain behind., we are staying at Kassiopi, a small quiet village about an hour and half from the airport.   upon arriving in Corfu a coach connection was supposed to be waiting for us , and a few other people . But no one was there!!!   the small "office" in the airport was un attended!      Eventually 40 minutes later we where on a small mini bus heading to our apartment , fortunately the driver was dropping a family off on the way to Kassiopi which meant we were 2 nd stop , the others were heading to the opposite side of the island so they would be hours away from their destination.

                               The view from our veranda  , olive and Oleander trees

 A quick look around the garden and i have spotted loads of butterflies  ,  macro lens on and lets get some pics .

                                                                     Common blue i think .

  A Copper ,  bright orange upper wings while flying but didn't get a close enough look at it .

The beach is just at the bottom of the garden , 3 minutes walk.      just look at the water clarity   wow!

                                                      Albania looks so close from here.

Think i will take the drone for a quick fly , Yes i brought it .

                                                   straight up above the garden .

 Down onto the beach ,   i have been flying for less than 5 minutes and someone has just fired a shotgun at it!!!!!!!  WTF!!       Mad Greek woman is now running down the beach towards me shouting her head off!      shouting if i see that drone again you will not see it again and you will be in big trouble with the police!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!         i have been flying out over the sea 200 mts from any property , totally legally ,   stupid bloody bitch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 I have just taken this last image before landing and having a shouting match with the bitch!      i will look for police tomorrow as i and my property have been threatened!

  I'm really bummed now, cant even risk flying again here. Jan even heard the shotgun back in the apartment.

Time to walk down to Kassipoi village and the harbour to take a look around.  pics taken with my new  i phone 7 plus  except first one .

                                                             What a beautiful harbour.

                               Walking around the headland on the right side of the harbour.

                                                                       a beautiful beetle :)

On the way back through the main street this is on a low wall ,    looks like it has 2 wounds on its body and isn't moving , a quick pic is taken .

                           The end of an eventful day in Corfu.   what will tomorrow bring?
