Corfue - Kanoniview in evening glow.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Vlaherna monastery up front, and behind it the Mouse Island (Pontikonisi) with its Pantokrator monastery. The legend tells that the Mouse Island is the ship of Faiakes petrified by Poseidon in revenge because he helped Odysseus. The island got it's name because the stair leading up to the monastery looks like a mouse tail when seen from a distance. In future the landing strip of the airport will be extended to about where the little boat to the right is sailing.

Du hast mich überrascht Gerda - unmittelbar dachte ich dass meine Frau (sie heisst auch Gerda) mit mir Spass machen wollte. Vielen Dank für deinem Like. Korfu kann ich dir wirklich empfehlen, aber wichtig. Such dir ein Hotel aus im Stadt der abends unheimlich charmant ist.
Schöne Grüsse,
Johannes

Hallo Johannes, ich war auch schon auf Korfu, allerdings nur einen Tag, bei einer Kreuzfahrt ist man eben jeden Tag woanders unterwegs.

LG, Gerda

Thank you very much Sirka - From where the photo was taken you can enjoy the view with a glass of Wine before dinner, since this photo was taken just before the sun went down behind the mountains.
Greeting,
Johannes
