1085 – Athos coasts: "the Desert"

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.
