......we spent high in the mountains..
Dewi was practising to be Zeus,
while we craned our necks watching griffon vultures
cavort in the sky...the wingspan of these birds is over 240 cms!
There must have been something very tasty down there...can you see the heads of 3 vultures in amidst the boulders?... and the ravens trying to get in on the act too..
Since Geoff finished working at the end of October, we've had some wonderful weather, so we've made the most of it and we've been out on day trips.
So, I thought I'd share some photos with you, showing the views, wild life and flowers.
Crete needs lots of water after the summer..we've not had nearly enough, but even a small amount brings out the gorgeous flora that this island is famous for.
