nothing like family time at the lake!

Snake Mountain, Vermont

Though heading out for a hike when half the sky is cloudy, last summer my cousin and I set out to climb Snake Mountain.  The view was amazing (obviously) with a cloud opening just over Lake Champlain (and Upstate New York beyond that). By the time we ran up and back down the storm was rolling in – made for dramatic photos! Nothing like the Vermont sky..Summer in Vermont

Summer in Vermont

I’m taking a break from dissertation writing for some family time in Vermont and a little friend time in New York too. I have some photos from last summer in Vermont which I will be sharing while I’m here, but mostly I’ll be taking in this view.

Battleship Averoff

Warning: this post is heavy on the Greek flag, but I can’t help it, that flag was huge.

In June when my Dad was visiting, we finally visited the Balkan War-era battleship Averoff, that’s now anchored in the harbour of Faliro, a seaside suburb of Athens. It’s now a floating museum, and a trip that was well overdue for us.

Stoa of Attalos, Athens

Stoa of Attalos, Athens

This photo I took of the Stoa of Attalos, in the Ancient Agora in Athens, was featured by Flickr on its ‘Explore’ page – so I thought I should share it here too! There is nothing like Greek light, and this is my favourite time of day. Early evening, and suddenly everything is golden.

Agia Marina, Lygourio

During our spring trip to ancient Epidavros, we made a brief lunch stop near the site of an ancient pyramid (yep, pyramids in Greece. who knew.) Although we were given a talk about the geology of the area by a local archaeologist, I was distracted by the possibility of food and by this lovely post-Byzantine church, dedicated to Saint Marina. It was completed in 1713, and although tiny, I liked looking around.
