It has been a long and hard week and this walk around the island was exactly what I needed on a beautiful windy yet partially sunny Sunday!
Here are some of the photos I took today and some old ones in the end of the post:
These two goats where locked up in an abandoned building.
We went for a superbly delicious lunch in Pandeli. I love all the shells stuck on the buoy, it looks like it was done on purpose…
ANd the mandatory visit of the castle with its lovely view of Agia Marina and Alinda!
And an older photo I took in Athens of some out of focus lights. I call it ”where is you focus?”
I just emptied my phone from around 300 photos… Haven’t done that since August… So I decided to make a post with a selection of photos.
Lilly sleeping and looking very comfortable in an uncomfortable position…
A huuuuuggeee, fist sized, moth I spotted on the way to work on a hot August morning.
A last September swim in Pandeli. One of the things I miss about summer during the winter is not the weather (I hate summer weather) but rather being in the sea!
I designed this cake and the pastry cook realized it! One of the best meals I’ve had at the lovely Mylos restaurant!
When she is not wondering out in the ‘wilderness’ she is almost always sleeping…
And autumn arrived with some great storms… And yes autumn is my favorite time of the year! Perfect temperature and rain!!
And some great cloudy skies
In Athens for the Christmas holidays. It was really interesting how the city has changed in a matter of years!
We tried molecular cocktails on my birthday.. I was not impressed, even though I absolutely loooovee cocktails
Aaaand back to the office….
I hope everyone has a lovely year!! And most of all I wish to all Greeks a productive and positive year with all the changes we so long for!!
This summer has been the craziest and busiest one! Work has been exhausting but very satisfying! Summer was sweat and very hot! Met a lot of new and interesting people, saw old friends after a long long time, went to the beach a lot and drank A M A Z I N G cocktails (see photos below!).
A beautiful mojito
A strawbery cheescake in the makings
Mojito & lemonpie heaven!!
There is this anual exhibition of REALLY old vehicle every August! Some beauties are in display…
And the ocasional pigeon flying around!
In February was the Greek carnival! Here we have a good specimen of what homemade zombies look like!
and we also had Ash Monday, with a great meal of seafood..
I sometimes think she is plotting against us…
Spring is here
full of crazy colors
and the usual cat in the dumpster
crazy wild flowers I wish I had in mygarden
So I decided that in order for this blog to seem still alive I will post a few snaps from last spring until about a month ago… As I still cannot find the time to upload proper posts I have decided that for the moment I will post snapshots (which are very often taken with my phone)! Enjoy
First spring coffee under the sun!!
Easter Sunday (a big deal in Greece) and little brother woke up late
The rollings on cement
Summer full moon can be majestic
It gets so humid in the summer that the road is literally shining
When autumn comes and it gets a little gold she always comes to sleep in the bedroom. As for the rest of the year she doesn’t care about us
Making pomegranate liqueur for Christmas! The easiest gift, recipe here!
I woke up to this… Cute and scary at the same time!
Don’t let looks deceive you he is a little devil!
Sunbathing after the storm
Oh hi, are you sitting on the computer? Oh well I’ll sit on your keyboard…
