Lake  Scottini

"Finally, we bumped our way down a stony track through the olives and there lay Scotini, an almost circular lake about seven or eight acres in extent, surrounded by trees and with a large reedy island in the middle and its shallow water full of jade-green weeds. As olive groves looked to some people, it too looked lifeless, yet I knew it was a universe of its own, for in its depths were weird darting, rolling, jerking, flitting forms of microscopic life, fearsome dragonfly larvae, small fish, newts, frogs, snakes and pond terrapins."
