A couple of live webcams for you.
« on: April 30, 2012, 03:39:47 PM »
Sorry folks but these cams are near the dreaded Hersonissos. Real time streaming so you can check what the day is like and enjoy the fact that you are not visiting the busier parts of the Island.
Really worth a look, just wish there were webcams like this near Plakias. On the other hand it may make more people want to visit. Best keep it just how it is.

Looks like either the first link works only during the day or the webcam is offline, the second link is working fine tonight 30th April 2012.
The first link was so interesting too. Drunken Tourists, wandering small dogs and Woman who appeared to be harvesting weeds for Horta?

Plenty there to keep people occupied. The reason I posted my two is because they are live & like watching television. Ok the quality is not as good as Tv :-). Off to look at some of the others on that map.

The Skiathos one is good (when its online) you  can control the pan/tilt and zoom, it covers the town and harbour near the end of the Airport runway

Thank you. Know both these cameras and the website well. Very useful for those that do not.
The reason I posted the webcam links is because they are in real time so like you are looking out of the window and watching life go by outside.
Great to see the forum beginning to come to life after winter hibernation.
Such a fantastic and informative forum. I noticed that you have eaten at Taverna Agia Fotini Chris. Any chance of some feedback on this thread? http://forums.plakias.co.uk/index.php?topic=1707.0
Thank you for your webcam links and any info you can give about Agia Fotini Taverna AKA "The Old Carob House".
