A fishing boat bobs quietly in the harbour, waiting to be taken out onto the sea.
The view of the wonderful city of Nafplio from the Fortress of Palamidi. In the middle you can see the Venetian Bourtzi Castle, and the coastline of the Penopolese peninsula in the distance. The city is the most wonderful place to wonder around and get lost in. It is full of little alleys, shops and restaurants. And if you follow the coastline there is a wonderful walk (wall run for me) along the side of the hill.
Here are a few more pics of the Fortress of Palamidi in Nafplio.
A courtyard in the fortress, with the Greek flag flying high, and the Aegean see and coastline in the distance.

This tunnel is actually up on the battlements of the Fortress of Palamidi in Nafplio, Greece. You can climb on the walls along the outside of the arches to have a magnicifant view of the Aegean sea.
I saw this boat moored in the trees on the beach just outside Nafplio. I’m pretty sure that it hasn’t been out to sea for quite some time. I just have to wonder what happened to in, and how it got into that state? I bet that at some stage it was sitting on a trailer and them somebody took the trailer and stripped the boat of anything useful and drive off, leaving the boat to slowly decay among the trees.
