Photo of the Day #29

At the entrance to the Bay of Navarino is a small weather worn island with an interesting rock arch cut into it by the sea.

The Bay is famous for the naval battle fought here in October 1827, during the Greek war of Independence, when British, French and Russian ships decisively defeated the Ottoman and Egyptian fleet. The outcome ultimately led to the independence of Greece.

Interestingly, it was the last major battle in history entirely fought by sailing ships.

We stopped on our way to Pylos, a lovely town in the Bay, to take this photo of Lady Roslyn peeping through the arch.

About us

We are Nic and Catherine Hodgson from Cape Town, South Africa. Our plan is to commute between Cape Town and LADY ROSLYN, spending a few seasons cruising and exploring the Mediterranean Sea, an Atlantic crossing, time in the Caribbean and with luck, a season or two in the Pacific.

Along the way, we hope that family and friends will join us.

For now though, we are taking it slowly and enjoying life one trip at a time.

but for life not to escape us"
