Blue Bollards with a Twist of Mooring Rope

On a short ferryboat ride to the Island of Elafonisos, Greece I captured this image of mooring rope twisted around two rusted blue bollards. The vibrant medley of blues in the sea, sky, and boat caught my attention. As I look at the image now, I feel like I’m once again on the ferryboat gazing out…

Cycladic Style

Curved walls and an archway soften the look of this traditional white-washed home on the island of Paros. It’s a place I’d like to call home.

The Craggy Coastline of Kythira

Kythira is my favorite kind of Greek island. It’s off the beaten path. It’s rural with plenty of small seaside and countryside villages, and it’s relatively free of tourists. It’s a place where the ravages of the sun, wind, rain, and sea have created dreamy secluded beaches and at the same time, lonely swathes of…

The Doors of the Fishing Village of Avlemonas

Of all the lovely villages on the island of Kythira, Greece, the pristine fishing village of Avlemonas tops the list of my favorite places to go on the island. The village always has a cheerful, upbeat vibe with its whitewashed houses and blue shutters and doors. A crystal-clear blue lagoon at the center of the town…

The Doors of Aroniadika

The island of Kythira has a low-key rural vibe that has drawn us back to the island again and again over the years. While we gravitate to the seaside villages and beaches, we can’t help but also explore the inland villages filled with rustic charm. At times our curious nature for exploring the small villages…

The Cats of Greece

These lucky cats call Greece home. The cats look relaxed, clean, and to appearances, well-fed. Cats living the good life under the Grecian sun. A variety of animal welfare societies in Greece have a trap, neuter, and return (TNR) program, recognized to be a humane method of decreasing the stray cat population. I’ve noticed the…
