Fisherman Mending Nets

 

This photo was taken in Georgioupoli, a small village 22km west of Rethymno on Crete’s north coast. Georgioupoli’s excellent beaches make it popular with tourists during the summer, and much of village economy is structured to take advantage of this. However fishing still plays an integral role in both the local economy and local lifestyle (and particularly cuisine!), and the village’s moorings are often packed with the archetypal small Mediterranean fishing boats immortalised on holiday postcards everywhere.
