this photo entry will be the 1000 photo of kythera I have entered on kythera family website since its beginnings ... I would like to thank the administrators of this website for the entering of photos ,stories and all information about the island from all kytherians in kythera and in other countries ...I would like to dedicate this entry to all the generations of the departure from the island the many 1000s of people that left the island to seek better lives and opportunities abroad , some never to return and others that returned to visit love ones many years later ,also I want to acknowledge the sorrow and pain that parents must of had when farewelling their children or family members at agia pelagia or at the drop of site at the now tree of sorrow site just outside of potamos ... also I would like to dedicate this photo to my father Theodore Trifyllis of trifyllianika , who left in the 30s aged only 14 , to come to Australia .. he told me that he was still waving goodbye to his parents till the island disappeared out of sight when the boat was turning past kavo mailo ...the stories of his time in kythera made me fall in love with the island , and this website allows us to pass on our stories and photos for all generations past and new to get to know kythera and to see what's happening on the island ... thank you to you all , I look forward to my next 1000 photos .... in this photo father mariatos at laryourtisa church in potamo for the 6th January epiphany service
