the ferry boat at souda port

A very alluring sunset above the port of Souda where the boats leave every night from Hania to take you to Athens. The large buildings to the right of the ferry boat are silos where grain and flour are stored (bread flour is not produced in Crete on a commercial basis).

I'm at a children's entertainment centre, hence the ping pong tables.
