The End of a Beautiful Day

Time, as usual is flying by...
This is the afternoon of the last post.
Sadly, my camera battery died whilst I was taking all the photographs up at Katharo, so these were taken with my phone camera. Hence they are not as clear.

We walked beside the sea, taking in the gentle lapping of the waves and the crystal clear sea.
We're so lucky to live on such a diverse island, all those wonderful flowers and such a vista in the morning.
Then a quick drive down to the coast and just look....
Yes, that is Geoff on his hands and knees, he spied 2 parrot fish lying on the tiny jetty. Whether the fisherman forgot them or what, but it did seem such a shame they'd been left. There was no one around. No, we didn't take them.
Finally, we had a much needed swim here, from this tiny cove, not another soul around, it was delightful.
Dewi had his first ever swim too, took to it like a duck to water....so to speak!!
Well, no, of course not!!...you didn't really expect photos of me... with my swimming costume on, did you???

I just would love to dive into that water - the color is SO wonderful.

I would have loved to have seen the parrot fish. What a place Crete is, isn't it? x

The water looks so clear and inviting...yes, I would love to go in that water too, as MIM said. I think your phone takes pretty good photos...I can never figure out how to download them. What makes you so lucky, Jude, is that you appreciate your surroundings so much...your cheer and complete connection to all aspects of life is inspiring and admirable. Love to you and may you have many more such beautiful days <3

That water is so tempting! You are lucky to live in such a paradise - but from your posts, it's clear that you truly appreciate it. How is the garden coming along?

Oh and I thought it was pretty good here. Bum!

Judith said...

I'm jealous, can't remember the last time we were on the beach. Might get a day off soon, here's hoping.

Well, why not?? Hard to take a photo of yourself swimming, right? Jude, this is so beautiful and you ARE very lucky. Wish I could visit.

Enjoying the travelogue. I really may have to change my "someday" travel plans.

Calico Kate said...

In answer to the last - yes absolutely!!
Super clear blue sea, wow what an end to a lovely day out and about.

Oh dear. How I wish I could have joined you in the water. (Mind you, some low lying countries may have gone under when I got in)

Your photos are fabulous! I have visited Crete numerous times, some for research and some for family holidays and i have loved it everytime. It must be wonderful to live there!
