Married to the lovely Geoffrey, my soulmate. I have two fantastic big kids,both married, whom I love and miss every day I'm not with them, but I know they're living and loving their lives and we make up for time when we get together.I now have three granddaughters too...
We don't go in for traditional Christmas, we enjoy getting away from everything and experiencing something completely different. Last year we spent the day on a desolate beach. We've had a seafood fest on our boat in Spain. This year we decided to head for the mountains.
When our friend Sandy asked if she could join us with her husband Chris, we said ok, but we're not going to be 'doing' Christmas. They said that's fine and they'd bring some unchristmas food. Sure enough, when we stopped to stretch our legs high up in the mountains, Sandy brought out 4 still warm Cornish Pasties!!! Food from heaven according to my dear husband, being a Cornish man... It made the day for him. We had warm mulled wine, coffee and some delicious filo pastry sweets filled with a creamy custard.
We were up on the Thripti range (approx. 1100 m) looking over at the Dikti range (approx.2150m).As you can see from the first photo, Dikti was covered in snow. It was very crisp and cold where we were but, thankfully, no snow. As we descended we were facing the Lybian Sea and were able to capture this magnificent sky and sunset over the dramatic black sea.
