Corfue - Kanoniview in evening glow.

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.

Hello Henry,
Thank you for your visit and your kind comment. You are right, you do not see this view very often, and that's why we are going there again late september to enjoy the view with a cold glass of - well - beginns with b.

Enjoy your weekend,
Johannes

Tak Else,
- om knap to måneder behøver vi ikke kigge på billedet. Da kan vi igen opleve det live fra Kanoni medens vi nyder et glas koldt et eller andet.
God tur til Mosel. En af mine kunder har holdt sommerferie dernede hvert år i omkring 40 år og kan ikke tænke sig bedre sted.
Vores erfaring med Mosel er, at man ikke skal overnatte på campingpladsen der, hvor den løber ud i Rhinen - i hvert fald ikke, hvis det er tåget om natten. Det prøvede vi i vores helt unge år. Tuuuut. Båååt o.s.v. hele natten. I Koblenz var der iøvrigt Operette på Rhinen. Det var en fin oplevelse.

M.v.h. Johannes
