Temple of Olympian Zeus

Lois and I (quite literally) stumbled upon this temple while walking from the Olympic Stadium to the Acropolis. The Temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens was build around 6 century BC.

If you look in the far distance, you can just make out the Acropolis on the left of the main columns.

The Church of Saint Nicholas by the sea

This lovely little church is right at the end of the quay in the Port of Aegina. The walls are covered in lovely paintings of St Nicholas (the patron saint of sailers). The paintings are not in the best condition – I am sure being so close to the water does not help, but the colours are wonderful, and you are welcome to take your time to wonder around and look at the artwork.

It is really small, so it won’t take very long. Worth visiting.
