Expedition Team:  Jacque Kelly, Dave Miller                                                                                  Expedition Date:   April 2018

Jacque & I traveled 55 miles south to Lindos & visited St. Pauls Bay & the Church of Apostle Paul, where St. Paul landed to preach the word of Christ. Next to the bay on a large hill is the Acropolis of Lindos & the Temple of Athena (400AD).

We rode donkeys (Photo#3) up to the summit and toured the ruins.  The relief of a Rhodian trirame (warship) carved in the rock at the foot of the steps leading to the Acropolis (Photo#5).

The Acropolis of Lindos (Photo#2 & #4) is a natural citadel fortified by Greeks, Romans and others who once occupied it.  The Temple of Athena (Photo#7 & #8) dates back to 300BC.  The columns are remains of a Helenistic stoa (Photo#9 & #10) built around 200BC.

We stopped on the way back at Seven Springs Restaurant & had lunch outdoors in a shady, comfortable dining area next to a spring feed creek.  Several ducks kept begging and interrupting Jacque’s lunch.
