(visited by Captain Peter and Leon Leprozo)

30-Mar-2004 -- After having left the Dardanelles [Çanakkale Boğazı, Hellespont] this morning we received the information about our next employment:

Loading citrus fruits and potatoes at Ashdod (Israel) for Sheerness at the mouth of River Thames and Antwerpen (Belgium).

So during the day we sailed South and Southeast through the Aegean Sea, at left the Turkish mainland, right the Greek islands of the "Dodhekánisoi" (Dodekanes, Archipelago of the Twelve Islands). Shortly prior sunset we arrived at Rhodes Island, on which Eastern coast we continued to sail a Southwesterly course towards 36N 28E.

Rhodes Island, which in Greek is called Nísos Ródhos, is very mountianous and the largest of the Dodekanes. The mountains are heavily wooded. Numerous streams, mostly dry in summer, flow towards the coast.

When passing the coast, we saw a small village, built entirely of white stones. Then we rounded Cape Lindos with its prominent lighthouse, high over the Sea.

A small rock, Paksimada, and hardly larger than a ship, is in the vicinity of the confluence.

Fortunatly we arrived at the confluence still at twilight, so we could make a picture of the view to NE, to North and to W, where the village of Plimmiri is located.
