My View of Bitez Bay

photograph by algis kemezys ,

 

The view from my second story window gives me an eyeful of Bitez Bay on the south-eastern Aegean coast of Turkey. I usually check it out to see if the bay is calm or somewhat wavy. If the conditions are right I hop down to theRead full post »

I'm Dreaming of .....

 Cats and I have many traits in common, not the least of which is our mutual love of fish. I went to a local market here in Bitez to capture images of a wealth of Mediterranean fish, with a selection that makes my mouth water and would probably driveRead full post »

  The port of Aegina

 

The time has come to leave Greece and lovely Aegina. At the end of the day it's not just the soaring prices of life's necessities (like food and heating-fuel), the chaos caused by strikes and diminished services (like the bus) and theRead full post »

Be careful what you wish for because you just never know if you will get it. I, for instance, have been the traveling friend of both tame and untamed cats and dogs. I have always enjoyed Greece and Turkey for this very reason because sooner or later IRead full post »
