Making the most of my extra day in Greece after the competition had ended, the trusty travel guide came out again to lend some suggestions of where to explore.

I headed south and was greeted by some superb views over the Greek coastline.

My destination was Cape Sounion to visit the ancient Greek temple of Poseidon. It seemed appropriate given the activities I have been recently pursuing.

Against the strong winds that were blowing across the cape, this tree seemed to be coping particularly well. Everywhere else was scrubland and exposed rock.

It was another impressive view of the coastline from by the temple.

After this, I relaxed and watched the last sunset I would see in Greece from a nearby spot.
