Don't want to loose this topic Pia, so I split it and made it a new thread about your most amazing trip to Corfu.
The photos are beautiful. That little beach in the one photo is lovely. I hope you had a wonderful time.
Love that orange cat sitting side ways to the camera. Lovey dubby

Pia, do you know what kind of tree that is, 5th one up from the wonderful cat?
It is huge, beautiful, and the bark is so interesting.

Looks like a wonderful vacation Pia, what a beautiful area. The stones in that one picture look like they would be great to plant with tiny semps! Big Grin

Nice Pia.
The parts of Greece I've been to look so different. Crowded, for one thing!
I guess I should try an island next time.

Ah, I was right. Have a 50 year old fiction book that is set in Corfu and describes how close the island is to Albania. Now I have photos to back up my imagination! Thank you. Thumbs up
