We went with the Elders and the Sisters on a Zone Trip to the Temple of Poseidon.  It is located on a hill on a small peninsula at the southern most tip of Greece.  It is called Sounion.  The wind was blowing about 40 miles an hour and I took this picture of Mom facing into the wind.

THE TEMPLE OF POSEIDON, GOD OF THE SEA.  Poseidon and Athena fought over the city of Athens.  Athena offered an Olive tree and Poseidon offered sea water.  Poseidon lost!
