Chania's motorbike graveyard

We often get cross in a huffy middle class old person sort of way when we see people, both locals and tourists, carelessly tossing their rubbish into Hania's beautiful old harbour. However, this seems to be going above and beyond the call of duty in terms of getting rid of unwanted rubbish!

Bike fallen into Chania harbour

Of course, without seeing how the motorbike got into the harbour, it is impossible to tell whether it was deliberately dumped, ended up in the sea as a prank, or as the result of an accident on the road leading around the harbour.

I wonder how long it will stay there.

it is quite common in winter for vehicles to be sucked off of the surrounds by high seas (a family saloon with 4 Albanians was grabbed last winter killing all on board) so it may have been simply that somebody parked a little to close to the edge.

Given the frantic gale blowing tonight, I fully expect to find our lemon tree in the harbour tomorrow
