Took the bikes to the Paestum Ruins – how cool the history of this place. It was founded by the Greeks in the 6th century b.c. Though many parts are from the Roman days 3 temples, a memorial tomb and a meeting place are actual remains from the initial Greek settlers. Paestum was a seaport which over time has retreated about a mile. The Greek sites remain because the Romans were superstitious and didn’t want to destroy the temples and tombs. The Ceres Tempe dates back to 500 B.C. the Temple of Neptune dates back to 450 B.C. and the Temple of Hera from 550 BC is one of the oldest Greek Temples still standing, it is massive in comparison to the other two. In 1943 Allied paratroopers dropped in near here and Temple of Hera was used as a military tent hospital.

We have become quite capable as a team in hand washing and letting out to dry our laundry, and so it was. Enjoy sometime at the pool and then a game of rummy before retiring.
