Blue fishing boats on Zakynthos

I know they're a bit picture postcard, but I do love these traditional wooden fishing boats I saw on the Greek island of Zakynthos.

Even those who now earn a living from tourism still feel a strong connection to the land and sea, growing their own fruit and vegetables behind the house and going out fishing in the summer months. In October, when we visited, most of the boats had been taken out of the water for the winter, when hunting takes over as the favoured outdoor pastime of the men on the island.

Funny feeling to stumble across somebody with same interests and same publishing style. And the fact I almost went to Zakynthos this year makes it more weird.
