|There are still footprints embedded in this stone|
|These “faces” were actually water spouts and sat on top of the pillars to catch the rain|
Looking at all of the ruins, I was amazed at the structures and how a lot of them were still standing to this day. Most of the ruins left are from the training areas, not from the field itself, which is simply a large, open dirt field with a strip of marble marking the location where runners would take their mark.

|Olympic Field with the marble starting line. Very simple.|
|Where the judges sat. The spectators sat on the grass that was gradually sloped upward.|
|The girls running on the field.|
After our tour we headed back to our ship where my husband and I splurged on a private cabana wine pairing dinner while sailing the Greek Isles.

I have to say I wasn’t that impressed with the food on the ship, other than their private restaurants, but this dinner was superb (and they even made me chicken to substitute the seafood and lamb…though I was so full I barely ate it!)
