AGIA MONI .. 6TH AUGUST ....

just a reminder to some people that kythera in august is not only packed dances, with local and imported bands, souvalki,loads of happy children, dancing their feet off, blistering hot days with water springs to provide relief, markets, concerts ,movies, rain and swimming... also there are many wonderful and moving church services to attend which a lot of Greek Australians seem not to attend , its a shame really because even if you are not a religious person these mornings can be very moving and they are a part of the kytherian and Greek heritage for many many years .. in years to come no one will be attending these wonderful kytherian church services as it is mainly the over 60 years of age that attend , so apart from the above past times on the island with making movies , taking photos from the air , diving for ship wrecks etc , consider the values of the island and respect and attend our wonderful churches on the island

epiphany / theophany church service laryourtisa potamos ... my 1000 photo entry !

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
