Just about a "perfect day" ...

Today - Its a stunner ...

Last night it rained for a few hours,enough to put the dampener, under plans to go out. This morning is sunny warm and exposed skin, beginning to glow. It's also about birdsong, butterflies, acrobatic house Martin's, and the sound of bees going about their business. 




If I had a hammock, I could lay back, close the eyes and take it all in ...

Nikos has been up early and is flying along on his lawnmower. He has taken the collection box off, and there is a shower of cuttings, and detritus emerging in his wake. It looks like a high speed muckspreader ...

Aghia Eleni this morning, was gorgeous, and around a dozen Sunbeds. Even the fish were jumping out of the water, to take in the views. If there is a paradise today, then this is it. 




Koukounaries has three areas of Sunbeds, crystal clear water, one man having a paddle at one end,and a swan sitting on the beach at the harbour end. The light is fantastic, the sea azure blue, and distant Evia has a purple tinge to the mountains ...






These spring flowers, are on a patch of waste land. They started their life, down near the airport, and now their seeds have germinated, and are giving a lovely display of colour. Some are so tiny, it's easy to miss them, or trample them underfoot ...







Wish you were here? Of course not ....
