at the pier in Aegina port
We decided to go into the town of Aegina because there was really nothing to do in Aghia Marina.. we had a nice breakfast at the hotel and waited for the bus to come.. the bus actually only come every 2 hours, so we caught the second earlist bus which was around 10.20. We arrived in aegina 30 mins later and we walked towards the temple of Appollo which was a 3 euro entrance fee. But we were allowed to walk and touch the ruins so i guess it was worth it.  There were old ruin houses around the temple and there were some expanation of the growth of the town around this temple.

It was a very spring-like day, hot so we could walk around with t-shirt and no jacket- look up the pics with us and the ruins on a meadow full of those yellow flowers! Litterary spring time! From the temple of Apollo we headed towards the little streets and markets and walk and walk.

.and walk.. . until we ended up in the outskirts of aegina town. It's pretty nice town, but except of the temple and few small churches all u can do there is just relax in the dozens of cafes and restaurants, especially the ones overlooking the port. For lunch we had gyros. Then  we walked along the short stretch of rocky sand they called the beach. the real ones are supposed to be out of town in Perdika. When it was around 14.00 we decided to cath the bus back to Aghia Marina around (which was the last bus into that town) .  We had alot of time on our hands so we decided to walk up the mountain.
There was no path so we walked just across forest and rocks, climbing up. From the hill/mount there was a beautiful view over the village and the bay of Aghia Marina. Although short before the top RJ stopped and didnt make it to the very top of the mountain. Weakness!
;))
Then we walked down and around the village and along the beach. And our day finished as usually here, in the Achillion restaurant, where we had another great food.
