On our second day in Greece, we went to the acropolis and wandered around through the Plaka district and the Roman Agora. This is me at the acropolis or more accurately the Parthenon.
This is a view of Athens from the acropolis. The city sprawled as far as you could see on all sides.
We went out West a few years ago and drove through the Rocky mountains. We didn't see any mountain goats there ... but they were on Hydra
|Our Hydra tour dog - Tropha|
The day after we went to Hydra, we took a tour to Delphi to see the Temple of Apollo. I didn't find the Oracle, but we had fun. At this point in our vacation, another couple had also joined us - Brad and Carey. The tour group was a little slow for our pace, but the bus ride to Delphi was quite nice.
|I think at this point Brad & Carey are the only ones in our group still paying attention.|

|The stadium at Delphi|
|Tracey taking a picture (obviously) me - not sure what that's about.|
After we went to Delphi, we went out for dinner at a restaurant called Strophi. Tracey & I are drinking ouzo the proper way - over ice and sipping it. Opa!
|Another shot from the restaurant. You can see it has a great view.|
After we ran the marathon we went out for dinner at a place that had Greek music and dancing.
Other amazing shots
Oh... and these pictures too.
Temple of the Olympian Zeus these are the tallest columns in Greece at 54 ft!
The reconstructed ancient agora
The Roman agora
There were so many shots I'm missing. But its wayyyy passed my bedtime. I have gone on a few other vacations with great pictures that I think I will post on. Look for New York in the near future. Sadly I have yet to run there... but someday!
