1667 – animals in the summer

September 7th 2014 we arrived at Lakkou skiti. The day before a heavy thunderstorm hit Athos, which gave a lot of rain.

A few hundred meters further we saw this crab on the road!DSCN5094 (Large)It is a freshwater crab, usually found in or near wooded streams, Potamon fluviatile, harvested for food since classical antiquity. It lives in many countries with a Meditteranean coastline.
