The birthplace of Zeus
Last stop…the beach
Birth of Zeus, Lasithi Plateau, & Ayios Nicholas
Jackson and I took our rental car and drove all around the northern side of the island. Crete is HUGE and would take years to see everything. I was determined to see the site of the film Moon Spinners (one of my fav childhood movies) so we set out on a journey to find it. Well, we did not really find anything from the movie but we discovered a lot of cool things along the way! The best part being the supposed cave of Zeus’ birth which is deemed the most storied ancient site. It was a beautiful cave and very well preserved! The journey getting here took us through huge mountains next to a turquoise ocean. We ended the journey in the beautiful town of Ayios Nicholas where we had a late lunch and hung out on the beach a bit until a crazy wind storm blew in.
