St. David's Day Walk

We went for a walk this afternoon...on Almyros Beach.
Althought the weather has been pretty dismal for weeks now...rain, rain, rain...it stayed dry today!
I noticed these tiny flowers on the tamarisk trees, so delicate!
......and sea holly popping up, with fresh new shoots.
The sea washes up and leaves tiny shells and slivers of angels' tears, though we don't have tide in the Med. there is a gentle mark.
I also came across a giant sea-monster emerging from the waves!! Happy Birthday Dewi....we've loved having you with us this last 2 years...unbelievable how time flies!!



The island of Crete is inundated with 15,000 Chinese refugees this week..the Greek government sent the ferries, that normally sail between the Greek islands, to Libya. There were also Brits and other nationalities with them. They will be repatriated within a few days and leave...I'm proud this was accomplished without any pomp and palaver.
Take care

Funnily enough my other half was on about the Chinese refugees last night and saying that they had got out....

Great news about the refugees - why didn't we already know about them?? What a relief it would be for them to land on the beautiful island of Crete. Lovely photos.

Lovely spring photos...so pretty and the sea monster, well that must have been scary! LOL

Wonderful of Crete to take in so many refugees. I wonder where they will all go? All were in Lybia?
Wow!!!!!!!!! What were the Chinese doing here? Amazing, all that is happening in the Middle East right now. Scary too.
