27-Sep-2012 -- I had to schedule an unexpected professional meeting in Thessaloníki, Greece on the last week-end of September. I allowed myself one more day off for visiting the Chalkidikí area and this CP.

It is located at the very south end of the Sithonía peninsula. We reached the point on foot from the village of Kalamítsi after parking our rental car 1090 m south west of the CP.

Although very short, the trip to the confluence was one of the difficult kind and it took us 80 minutes to get to the point and come back through rocky ground where even the goats find it uncomfortable.

On our way back we simply followed those goats to the sheepfold as it was already milking hour and we were greeted by the sheperd’s dog which obviously knew for a long time that goats can find their way home on their own.

We ended our day trip walking in the hills surrounding Kalamítsi, some of them are covered with bee hives which produce a delicious honey.
