Solitude

Uploaded by: Granddad

Friday October 29, 2010

Kalamata, Greece

Caption: One of the attractions of our home in Greece is that you can go swimming in the Mediterranean in the morning after breakfast and then be in the heart of the Taigetos Mountains in time for a walk with the dogs before lunch. It certainly puts all that time I used to spend in the office in perspective. For one thing nobody is taking minutes! In fact apart from the dogs and us - there is virtually nobody, unless you go out of your way to find them. Coming from a crowded island such as Britain we appreciate the solitude - so we don't often try! While the hills are now recovering from the forest fires of 2007 there are still plenty of scorched trees and bare hillsides to see.

You're so right, Alan~~isn't WU just the greatest site for meeting new people from all over the world with a love of the outdoors and all the beauty around us? Thanks for the background you include on each of your photos--it adds so much more dimension than just what we see with the eye! :D Kathy

Thank you, everyone, for your kind comments. I meet far more people on this site than when we are out and about on our trips in Greece. That is just the way I like it!

About Granddad

Granddad

We are English, (except our dogs, who are definitely very Greek, having been abandoned strays who took us in out of the kindness of their hearts). We retired to Greece in 2003 to escape the phoney political correctness endemic throughout the Anglo-Saxon world and to mix with some real people again. We live in the Exo-Mani in the extreme South of the Peloponnesus, where the sea and countryside are beautiful and the weather is also less political (i.e. they don't tax sunshine yet). The site provides an opportunity for us to bore the whole world with our snapshots and for which we are duly grateful.
