1095 – octopus

Afbeelding 3

Just as we entered the ferry for our visit to MT Athos in 2009 (here you see the ramp of the ferry boat) we saw something in the tiny waves at the beach near the peer.

Okto1
It was a small octopus almost trying to get on land and not aware of the danger of being caught.

Okto2
Never saw something like that before but we had no time staring at it because we had to catch the boat.

That same evening after a long walk we ate octopus at Mylopotamos cooked by Father Joachim and from a recipe by father Epifaniuswho wrote the famous Athos cookbook.
