Patmos

14UploadedFile0.jpg 8UploadedFile1.jpg 2UploadedFile2.jpg We got an early start this morning (5:45) and took the four-hour boat trip (just our little group on a boat that seats 300) to the beautiful island of Patmos. As we approached the island (photo), we could see the monastery at the top of the highest peak. We first went to the cave where it is believed that John received the vision and dictated the words of the Revelation. (The photo is of the entrance to the small church above the cave - no pictures were allowed inside.) This is a very holy site for Orthodox (Eastern) Christians. Further up the hill is the Greek Orthodox monastery from the sixth or seventh century. Patmos is a very picturesque island (final picture) - we wished that we could have had more time there, but we had to make the long trip back to our hotel in time for dinner. Another wonderful and relaxing day!
