Keliotes showed us some pictures of a Russian photo-album from 2009. Apparently some Russian pilgrims managed to embark on a small fishing boat, that sailed around “Cape” Athos in order to catch fish. The pictures are relatively rare, because no boats cross the cape on a regular basis.
First I will show the coast as seen on the Zwerger-map and show you the boat trip from Lavra to Kerasia/Kleftiko:
I start by showing you a picture of the boat on the 7th of may 2009 with the fishermen, near the coast of Lavra.

The small harbor named Kleftiko, with Karasia above it
The catch of th day with a humble monk
Another catch with a happy monk
A third catch with a monk who lookes happy, but also a bit worried (I agree if you look at the sharp teeth of the fish)
