When I took a closer look I found out that the small building at the end of the peer was a fountain:DSCN2056 (Large)And in its wall I found this memorial stone:

DSCN2055 (Large)

The stone tells about the restoration of the fountain and the kiosk in 2004, in memory of the painter Derek Hill. We showed some of his paintings/drawings in post 439 and 1139.

I found another Athos painting of Derek Hill:
