Work is still going on in the potami valley. The water that falls when it is raining can flow through these stones that are placed in the “cages”. The river banks stay intact. Thank you Mike, for some of the photos.

That looks great! In our country people make these blocks for fun. On Skopelos they are at least very useful! Well done and very good looking!
Wow, that’s a terrific job. Really interesting to see the photos of how things are progressing after the storm. Thanks.
These wire cages filled with rocks/stones are known as ‘gabions’. They have used many on the land next to the vets, Dimitris and Niki.
