Ailsa’s Travel Theme is Secret Place.
The bay of Tolon was first written about by Homer so it’s not much of a secret but at the time it felt like our own private slice of heaven.This was taken in 1973 – we had been camping through central Europe in the cool and damp for over a month when we arrived in Greece with its welcoming sun, heat and scenic beauty . The latter half of our stay took us to the Peloponnese where we stumbled upon Tolon. We had this cove all to ourselves.
Today Tolon is no longer a simple fishing village, no longer hidden or secret but has become a popular tourist haven.

I still think of it as our private, idyllic cove in paradise.
