Nice route map, but all three are in Cyprus rather than Greece.  Probably somewhere in Kykkos.

On the subject of Bethesda , the name and location brought the following to my mind.

The name Bethesda was embedded in my mind years ago from Bible studies as a water pool where a man was healed by Miracle intervention :o


So looking for this pool of water to help coch y bonddu find his roots leads us to a stone structure, reported as the Pool of Bethesda

Disappointingly this pool is not your modern typical 100M with lanes marked, so if he [Dave that is] intends running model speed boats he may need to enrol and train in stonework at a College of Masons or a Temple of Free Stones {-) so to enable him to make suitable modification or and water proof the pool

That takes me back to about 1960  :embarrassed:    First year College.  "Mitchells Building Construction, Elementary Course"
It came in useful when I was involved in re slating part of the Victorian State Parliament building with good Welsh slates %%

My disembodied voice once featured on local BBC TV, accompanying a minute-long shot of my right hand swirling a pint-glass of Belvoir Brewery's latest grog. I'm still waiting for the royalty cheque.  ;D
