... made cut, but only 72 ft wide, so no good for the large container ships. There is a submersible bridge, which we watched come up, after the boats had done their thing.
We have viewed many ruins, such as at Delphi and of course the Acropolis in Athens, and the amphi-theatre at Epidauros. While we find these humbling in terms of the history, we are getting a little ruined out, particularly with the hoards of people crowding them. We can be tourists, but ...

We buy courgettes, aubergines and a big bag of apricots. Absolutely delicious! Drive on to ...

must have been abandoned for years. How wrong I was!
The lighthouse is said to be built in 1873
and my guide book says that it is 25 meters tall with a range of 9 nautical
miles. The sight is depressing and I decide to walk all the way back.
At least I manage to take some beautiful photos!
Have a look…..
