Lindos - an archaeological site on the east coast of the island of Rhodes, Greece

June 14th, 2008 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places
 

Lindos is a town and an archaeological site on the east coast of the island of Rhodes, in the Dodecanese in south-eastern Greece. It is about 55km south of the town of Rhodes and its fine beaches make it a popular tourist and holiday destination. Lindos is situated in a large bay and faces the fishing village and small resort of Haraki.

Above the modern town rises the acropolis of Lindos, a natural citadel which was fortified successively by the Greeks, by the Romans, the Byzantines, the Knights of St John and the Ottomans. This makes the site difficult to excavate and interpret archaeologically. The acropolis offers spectacular views of the surrounding harbours and coastline.

Dolphin Encounters Bahamas, Bahamas

March 14th, 2008 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places
 

Dolphin Encounters began in 1989 when two bottlenose dolphins from a defunct aquarium in Nassau were rescued to be relocated to a large seawater dolphin habitat on Treasure Island (a.k.a. Great Guana Cay), Abaco, Bahamas. Soon after, six more dolphins joined our marine mammal family in Abaco. This created the foundation of what is today known as Dolphin Encounters in Nassau.
