Wish I Was There Wednesday~January 11, 2017

It’s been cold. And snowy. But worse, windy. Nothing makes me long for someplace far away that’s warmer than windy conditions. I despise the wind. Would I love to be laying on a beach in a sunny warm clim? You betcha!

Currently, I have been enjoying the broadcast of the  PBS’s series, “The Durrells in Corfu” which reminded me of my own trip to Corfu a few years ago. Can I just say I LOVED all the Greek islands I discovered. What a country! There’s just no comparison to anything like the Parthenon; Mykonos with its iconic windmills and island mascot, Petros; and sweet Corfu that charmingly captured my imagination. Luckily my travel mates were vastly different from the eccentric Durrell family (can there be any offspring more annoying than those spoiled brat adult children??) If you are not familiar with the PBS series, in a nutshell it is about a poor widow who uproots her British family and  attempts to start over again in 1930s Greece and their family adventures. If for no other reason, the Swedish guy Sven, is worth watching. Just saying. You’re welcome.

So to get through this windy/nasty weather stretch, I did what many of us do. I went back to relive a fabulous trip in the photo albums. This is the image that spoke to me. It made me long for another stroll along that beach where I encountered one of the sweetest dogs I ever met while in Greece. Hope this charming beach scene at beautiful Paleokastritsa (courtesy of my dear German friend ‘sister,’ Andrea) brings a smile to you like it did for me. Oh, that beautiful Ionian Sea with its turquoise waters and ever so gracious people. I miss you so.


Where would you like to be today?

Live, love, bark! <3
