Seven Springs is a tributary of the Loutanis river about 5 kilometres west of Kolymbia on Rhodes. Very busy in the Summer months but still worth a visit. There is just a trickle of water at this time of year at the source.

Set in glorious woodland where big plane trees take central place near the water.....

Domestic geese seem happy enough here......

Even a green toad seems content to sit in the shade......

The area is covered in pine woodland........

Below the road where the springs meet the Loutanis river just odd ponds remain......

And on the the gravelly bottoms fresh water mussels abound.......
