Poseidon Sunset

At the southern tip of this part of Greece sits Cape Sounio.  On a hill overlooking the sea are the ruins of a temple built for Poseidon, the "god of the sea."  It's supposed to a fantastic place to watch the sunset.

We've seen lots of ruins of ancient idol worship.  In glad they're in ruins.  My all the idols of my heart suffer the same fate!

The "golden hour" was intense, and Terry really blended in with the surroundings.  Turns out we were not supposed to be on these rocks, but we didn't know and got away with it for a few minutes.  

On Top of the World

Well maybe not the world, but the top of the Athenian Riveria.


This was not a typical tourist destination. We had to drive up an insane road until it got a little hard to continue.  See our car below.  

Then we climbed the rest of the way on foot even goingnthrough this hole in a cell tower fence because it was an easier route.

But the view at the top was worth it!

We also enjoyed hanging out in the "Hellenic Hamptons" as this area is called - yachts, sailboats, heliports, spas, etc.  

Settled for as swim in the Aegean.  Love this place.
