During my return from Aegina island I photographed some Seagulls that followed the boat almost to Piraeus
Aegina is a Greek island with an area of 87 km² located in the Saronic Gulf. The capital of the island including the picturesque port is also called Aegina.
Aegina is located a very short distance from Athens the capital of Greece and therefore it is suitable for short trips as well as long vacations or even for a day trip or cruise.
The main sights on Aegina are the Temple of Aphaia, the archaeological site of Kolona and Paleochora also the Monastery of Saint Nektarios which is an important place of pilgrimage for Orthodox Christians on Aegina.
