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.

Hello Henry,

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.

Noch einmal vielen Dank Henu eins. Ein toller Aussicht, der man mit ein Glass kaltes Bier oder Wein vom Kanoni geniessen kann.
Noch ein schönes Gruss,

Thank you very much NIKOS, I am glad you like my photo of the Vlaherna monastery and the Mouse Island. It is indeed a fantastic place to enjoy a cold beer og a glass of wine. I was there again October 2014, and it is not my last visit.
Warm greetings,
