I didn’t get to hop to Santorini and Mykonos, like I’d wished in my summer wish-list but I visited the beautiful islands of Poros, Hydra and Aegina. They were stunning, rich in culture and history! We set out early one morning and set out by boat to visit these lovely islands! It was a beautiful breath-taking day! As we approached one of the Islands and I looked across from the stern of the ship where I stood, I actually felt like my heart expanded. As if I was taking in so much beauty, that it could never go back to the way it was before. LOL! I wish I had better words to describe it, it sort of put creation and my place in it in perspective for me. I was filled with gratitude. I think the sea and majesty of creation and its Creator have a way of doing that to you, doesn’t it? Enjoy the photos below:
Oh! By the time we got to Aegina, the battery on my iPhone had died, maybe I’d taken too many photos (looking totally innocent here!), so forgive the quality of the next photos… oh and by the way, I am open to receiving a lovely portable camera as a present on my next birthday or just-because! Hint! Hint!
Okay! That wraps up my post on the Greek Islands I visited on this trip! I take loads of photos, sometimes, when I see a scene so beautiful, I want to capture; I stare at it and then close my eyes for a bit, almost like I want to leave an indelible image in my mind, so that I can recall it at will. In Greece, I had many of those moments. I want to end this post by saying, “may life be truly beautiful for you! May you never ever lose your sense of wonder and your appreciation for what is beautiful in the world!” Ciao! be awesome this week, may September be spectacular and special for you! It is for me; my mum, sister and husband celebrate their birthdays in September! 3 of God’s great gifts to me.
