 Above an old piece of amateur advertising at a taverna in the village of Sami. Below a wuild turtle in the lagoon at Argostoli.
Above a rowing boat waits in the amazing  collapsed limestone cavern lake at Messalini. Below a ferry glides from the mainland to Sami.
Above the beach at Petana. You drive down a scary hairpin road to get there and below our white Ford Fiesta hire car on the ferry from Lixouri back to Argostoli - saving a twenty five mile drive around the gulf.
 Well that's all I have time for just now. Got to get my breakfast. Best wishes....YP x.

  1. Thanks for these photographs of Mediterranean sunshine - they lift the spirits. It's quite a few years since we last visited the Greek islands and I think it's time we went there again!

    1. Nothing stays the same. I recall visits to the Greek islands in my twenties. Magical and almost other worldly in the sun-kissed blue. Yes. Come back Mr P and bring Mrs P too.

  2. A beautiful array of photos. That lovely little bay would suit me down to the sand!

    1. There's a job going for a cook (not a chef) in the middle taverna.

  5. Looks good, makes me feel like diving.
    I hope the pocket money is not proving too expensive the bottom has dropped into Sterling and the stock market is collapsing upwards according to the BBC. We now have no government with the exception of the LibDems----Who?

    1. Maybe Britain should experiment stepping forward without a government. They only screw things up. What kind of diving were you thinking about Adrian? (Chortle!)

  9. So lovely! I am glad you are enjoying your trip! Did the food at the tavern resemble the advertising, or did you find the flavors to be more three-dimensional?

  10. I've never been near any of the Greek islands, but the Mediterranean gets such incredible colours around Sicily, too, where I used to spend nearly every summer for 10 years when I was a much younger Librarian.
    Good to know you are having such a wonderful holiday.

  11. Absolutely beautiful YP. Good to know that there are still some places that are relatively unspoiled. What happy memories you'll take home with you.

    My cousin owns a villa in that area, I should look him up :)
    Enjoy dear friend.
