nothing like family time at the lake!
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..
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.
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.
The food was good too.
