Our series on thoroughbred horses is galloping toward the finish line, which is the perfect spot to see how hard these horses work. American Pharaoh, living in luxurious stables and spending his days making whoopee is the equine dream, but the reality for most thoroughbreds is day after day of hard work.
As you may remember, Jo over at Restlessjo invited us to enter some of our photographs in Capture the Colour 2013. Thanks to you we’ve knocked out BLUE, GREEN and RED.
On our second RTW we decided to spend at least one week in each location … hopefully longer if it captivated our interest.
We decided to get off the beaten path … I mean way off. In fact I think we were trespassing (if that fence we climbed over meant anything). We’d been hiking the Santorini Cliff Trail between Fira and Imerovigli, marveling at every sight, but it was time to do the backstreets.
I have no statistical support, but I suspect that this week must be the peak of grocery store injuries. Shopping carts zip around like overloaded guided missiles, and distracted shoppers are a health hazard.
While gazing at the panorama of Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head, a strange coincidence occurred to me. I realized that the first and last stops on our RTW are both locations which have active volcanoes.
We fly to Cyprus today, and consequently, this is our final post from Greece. We’ve been in Greece for 6 weeks, and while this isn’t a long time, it has been our home. And usually we reminisce a bit about the place we’ve been.
