Those of you who have been following my blog may remember that come every August, I pack a big bag and travel with my husband to the Peloponnese, Greece for our summer vacation.
We have been coming here for the past nine summers, always staying in the country side by the beach, just outside the village of Porto Heli. We stay the month, welcoming a flow of extended family, friends and friends of friends.
Our visitors are happy to join our evening walks along quiet country lanes.
Greece’s pine forests are fabled, each tree a veritable individual history.We encounter many fig trees along the way, observing the daily ripening of the fig varietals until ready for eating, on the spot.
Yesterday we collected grapes on our dusk walk as well as carob .
Mother Nature’s abundance is not to be taken for granted.
Have a peaceful weekend!
