Just checking in with you....This photo of sunset is breathtakingly gorgeous. How fantastic you could capture it. Both of you seem to be terrific photographers. Helps to have good scenery and good subject material (no dearth of that!!!) hugs to you and to lunabird!

A glimpse of the town through the trees.

We wanted a photo of the full moon and I just happened to get in the way. I'm not actually looking at the moon, nor even trying to look like I'm looking at it. I am simply smiling while he takes the shot, having just come from town where I smile constantly.

Noodle Heaven

Ed yelled at me when I snapped this shot, saying "We don't need a picture of me swimming with noodles!". I disagreed, as you can see. He worked all morning at various chores while I walked Luna and took care of some business issues while we have internet. Later in the day he treated himself to a nice swim, with both noodles. One of them is mine.

Many local boats dot the harbour.

Orange Flowers and Roofs

Luna and I took a long walk the morning after we arrived here (smiling the entire way) and while Luna studied the many goats along the hillside, I studied orange flowers and orange roofs. The streets are narrow, the goats roam freely and the flowers are everywhere. So are scooters, one after another.

Church

Our first afternoon stroll around town led us toward a church choir singing beautiful, but very different hymns than what we hear in the states. I snuck in through a back door and watched several small children be received by the priest with a bit of holy water to their foreheads. I was entranced, naturally. Later we learned the church dates back to the 1800's. The place was packed, probably related to Easter.

Dinghy Dock

We ate in town last night and were pleased to have Luna invited into the restaurant, although we were prepared to take her back to the boat. We are always appreciative of such flexibility. I am standing on the dinghy dock which is right around the corner from where all the action happens.
