Two images from Rhodes in summer with big blue skies and scorching sunshine – both of which have metal locks, signs or doors and the colours of autumn.
My eye was drawn to the colours and shape…
Just lovin’ summer in Greece
I love that feeling of acres of time ahead at the start of a holiday. Even now with our 10 days in Greece nearly done there is a spaciousness still. So much time to simply sit and be.
My favourite time, the early mornings as the low sun slowly rises, before the full heat of the day. A wander through the quiet alley ways of this tiny Greek island town, stopping to note the colours, a doorway here, a view over far away island there. And as I wander imagining all those people tucked up in their beds – some snorers, an arm round a loved one, some curled up like a ball, old and young, sleeping soundly still. There’s a peacefulness about that imagining of a town still mostly asleep.
Then down to the harbour for a cappuccino and hot freshly baked bread bought from the bakery and back to my still sleeping partner. A swim and a muse in the sun on loves and losses, on good intentions for my life back in London soon. And then finally he wakes and these precious solitary moments are done … Til tomorrow,
What greater contrast could there be between the view from our holiday villa on the small Greek island of Halki and our London life left behind …. Just for a week.
Fabulous contrast. Acres of time stretch out before us. Steps right down into the sea , sunshine on the terrace, time to read, snooze, muse and just be.
