Last weekend my walking programme began with an 'outing' with the girls and the dogs. It was another sunny day but the atmosphere was dull and the air full of Saharan dust.
There were loads of people up there. walking in the ruins, driving around or like us getting exercise with a view. From some vantage points, on a clear day, we can see the outskirts of Athens and Piraeus.
The police car passed at some stage but didn't stop to look for masks or sms no. 6, permission to take outdoor physical exercise, walk the dog or feed stray animals.
A dusty horizon. Looking down towards the harbour of Vagionia, below the ruins of the temple complex dedicated to Greek god of the sea Poseidon. This whole area would have been full of houses, docks and warehouses once upon a time
The girls came up from town and brought coffee with them. After the walk we sat to chat. That is Junior and Molly with us
An elderly olive tree.
The threshing floor opposite the temple site. I don't think this is part of the ancient ruins. It's old, but not that old
