Green hills

Green hills

A couple more balcony shots for you today taken with the long lens. As you can see, the hills are green with herbs and in some places with grass, but in other places, the mountains and Turkey in the distance are as rugged as ever.

I was up in time to see the Blue Star come in this morning. With the Dodekanisos boats now down to only two visits per week, I wonder how long it will be before the Blue Star also cuts down on its journeys. At the moment we’re able to order shopping from the local supermarket, and just about all of what we ask for arrives a couple of hours later. That was something of a highlight yesterday as was my exercise session which lasted all of ten minutes in the porch between the two buildings that make up our house. Must try harder, as my school report always used to say.
