Very First Sketchbook (#10)























Hidden fortification, Rhodes 
(Fine point marker in A5 sketchbook)

In 1309 Rhodes was occupied by Knights Hospitaller and under the rule of the newly named Knights of Rhodes the fortified city walls were built. That appears to be one of their crests on this underground entrance I found in the moat. With no torch, I decided going in wasn't an option.

Grab a torch and transform yourself into Indiana Jones

I've taken a torch with me on every holiday since that one, but never found a use for it.

Your post has a lot of character. It looks like it is waiting for someone to explore it. Thanks for sharing it with us.
