    The sea excursion around bays of Sevastopol city
    [​IMG]
    The symvol of Sevastopol
    Symbol of Sevastopol &#8211; the Monument to the flooded ships, it symbolizes respect of inhabitants of Sevastopol for the heroic subspecies made in 1854-1855 by a management of the Russian navy fleet.
    1854.
    Command of the Russian fleet makes the responsible and difficult decision, the ships should be flooded at an input in a bay. Captains and sailors open sluices and leave the ships which gradually go down under water.
    The fleet is flooded, the input in the Sevastopol bay is closed, the city is rescued from the enemy.
    In honor of a courageous act of seamen in 1905 in Seaside parkway was will erect the Monument to the flooded ships which became in due course a symbol of Sevastopol.

    I called to my friend, help me i need go down downwards from mountains.
    I was in 7 km from him on mountain road. Alexander has risen to me on special small off-road car Luaz. :D
    Downwards we lowered a motorcycle from mountains together.
    Likely have lost in weight on 5 kgs. The clothes could be squeezed out. For weariness hands and knees shivered. My friend was out of itself and abused me all road.:rofl

    To us has come to mind to pass on mountain road through the Crimean reserve from Soviet in Alushtu. Having passed about 10 kilometers, we have rested against gate. It has appeared that through journey is closed, because in this reserve have constructed to itself summer residences any local bigwigs. Not at any price the watchman hasn't wanted to pass us. On a parking before collars there was Honda Africa the Twin with German licens plate. We have got acquainted with its owner Olaf &#8211; the cheerful and sociable guy from Berlin, thus modest, as all Europeans.

    Have decided to go together on Ah-petri, and then through mountains to Bakhchisarai. Lifting on was ah-petri remembered by a narrow streamer with such turns that few times I wasn't entered and jumped out on a counter strip.

    Kinds opened the wonderful.

    About six evenings we have appeared at top of Ai-petri mountain. It was fantastic panorama overthere. We were driving about 15 kilometers aside from road on a plato. We set up camp in the Yalta reserve/

    My friend Alex said - I will not tell lies, if I will tell that it was the most unforgettable spending the night on all route. What did he mean? :evil :rofl
    Olaf was surprised much, having seen at Russian the present armchair. We have treated with its huge portion of macaroni with a stewed meat. Olaf didn't prepare, and ate any rolls and any fast food which it there and then before us has thrown out. We had a bottle of local wine, Olaf &#8211; a two-liter large bottle with beer. Have dissolved a fire and talked until late at night.

    Next day have gone to go for a drive across Crimea have gone down on the other hand the Crimean ridge. We Have found the lake, have made the fire, then I long fried a hen on the lattice.

    Alex and my wife have refused to eat. We with Olaf have kneaded it together with appreciable pleasure.
    Afterthat we have again overcome the Crimean ridge in the opposite direction. We went on other old dirt road.

    Having taken place, descended to bathe and even have jumped few times from not so large rock.
    In the morning we have left Olaf. He was need to go to Odessa.
