A walk around the island!

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:

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…

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.

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!

Random snaps that were left behind since last spring!

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 usLilly in bed

Making pomegranate liqueur for Christmas! The easiest gift, recipe here!
