Images from my vacation in Greece -1

our beach

It has been a week since I arrived with my husband in Porto Heli, a heavenly place by the sea in Greece.

Every morning we begin our day with a swim in the calm sea at a beach which is almost private but for an elderly couple we meet every morning and great with the customary “Kalimera”

Everywhere our horizon is framed  islands .

We take our breakfasts on the morning veranda, back of the house, shielded from the rising sun, but cooled by the early morning breeze .

Most mornings  are spent reading, writing or visiting the local villages.miniature boat1

The house in which we stay is beautifuly decorated with local art, drift wood and shells.

Before dressing informally for supper in one of the local Tavernas, we take a leisurely swim at the beach,watching the sun set.
