Bridge over no waters

Uploaded by: Granddad

Sunday January 24, 2010

Kalamata, Greece

Caption: We got a break in the weather on Sunday and drove up into the Taigetos through Altamera. En route we stopped to admire the view over the bridge on the Kalamata to Kardemili road with the peaks of Halosmenos covered in snow in the background. Only a few years ago people had to cross those mountains on foot using goat tracks where they existed but usually just climbing across the snow. Better men than me, Gunga Din! (with apologies to Kipling) I also want to say 'thank you' to Canon for repairing my camera when the mirror came adrift. I know that it was a manufacturing fault, but their customer service, through Johnstones of Glasgow, was faultless, and absolutely free.

Thanks everybody for your kind comments.
For Randel52 I have booked the flight and will be in your backyard at Mariposa on 29 February. See you then!
For Debra, I was celebrating life but due to my advanced years I forgot why I was celebrating. Eh, what? I look in the mirror each morning to make sure that I am still here and see my Granddad looking back. As he died in 1936 he is not now in the best of physical conditions. I need a better mirror.

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.
