Dragon’s Schism

Sailing the western coast of Skopelos today we passed the Dragon’s Schism where according to local legend: “…a homicidal dragon, which had been terrorizing people on the island, was preached to death by the island’s patron saint. Apparently Saint Riginos’ sermons were so boring that in order to avoid them, the dragon fled to the cliffs east of Cape Velona with the preacher following close behind. There, to escape any more sermons, the dragon threw itself off the mountain to it’s death, whence the cliff split apart. The dragon’s soul is said to rest in the abyss.
