Steve’s Vacation: Part 2.

Greetings everyone from the land of heat and sun and water and friends and heat!  Well, I never really thought at one time that I would be doing some posts from another country.  But here I am.  And where is here?  Where I am.  You expected more?  Well, I was planning to post a picture of my hotel today and then it would be easy to figure out.  Except I forgot to take a picture of this place this morning when I was out.  I took a lot of pictures.  And I was planning to take a picture of my hotel.  But…I forgot.  Maybe tomorrow.  After all, still 4 days left.  Can’t count today, since this day is nearly over.  Back home it’s still noon hour.  Weird really.

Yesterday was a fantastic day.  The day of the castle.  Okay, there is no castle there anymore.  But there was, as I mentioned before.  But what a beautiful spot.  Lovely park like setting.  Paths to walk on all over the place.  I would probably get lost.  Fortunately my guide is smarter than me.  I do feel sorry for her though.  She is putting up with a lot.

Amazing who you can run into at an old castle.  I took this picture without her knowing.

There is also very picturesque lookout spots for taking pictures of the beautiful scenery.  Speaking of scenery.  That ferry at the top of this post is huge.  It may not look it.  But it is. Kind of like a big floating box.  Apparently it is the largest ferry/shipping company in this part of the Mediterranean Sea.

Back to the castle.  I think my favorite spot was the waterfall.  Absolutely beautiful.  I could have sat there for a long time watching that.  Except I’m sure they saw me coming and they removed all the benches from that area just before I got there.  Naturally.  And then while I’m taking pictures of this beautiful waterfall…the water stops falling.  Like someone shut off a tap or something.  I couldn’t believe it.  I broke their waterfall.  Hopefully no one finds out.

I have seen quite a few different birds here too.  But so far I have not been able to get a picture of any.  Well, I could get the pigeons and gulls.  But we have those, even though they are a little different.  Just a little.  There is a pair of doves out here too, but they have so far stayed away from my camera as well.  They are similar to our mourning doves, a little different color and they sound different.  There was a large sea bird of some kind today but out of range by the time I got my camera out and focused on it.  Saw some nice black and white birds at the castle, briefly, no idea what they were.  Plus a couple other birds.  Maybe yet.

Well, guess I will stop again for now.  I hope you have enjoyed another peek at my vacation here in…a very Nice spot.  Anyway, until next time, I hope you enjoy your weekend and God bless!

Steve.

    • Thanks Huguette! Things happen wherever I go! I’m sure she didn’t know at the time, she did after. I sure hope I can get some of these birds anyway. Yep, time for bed and get ready for another day!😄😴

      • I agree with you Huguette, and yet…things do happen to me just like they happened to my dad. Now, he could blame me, but…who do I blame? Me. Sigh. It’s all in good fun though.😂😁Yes, I am feeling much better, thanks. A bit tired due to some young guys out back here last night drinking and making a lot of noise until 3 am. They are staying at the hotel. But otherwise feeling good and ready to go out again today!! Shortly.😁🌞📷🌴

      • I agree. The manager says, they’re only here for a short time and just having fun. Well, I’m only here for a short time too and would like to sleep so I can have fun. Oh well, everyone is different I guess. On my way out now for another day of walking and pictures!!😁🌞📷🌴🚶‍♂️😎

      • Really now? Short time 😕😕 so stupid! But some things are basic when you’re in a respectful institution I guess
        Enjoy your day and good luck with beautiful pictures 🌞🌞😊

      • I’m back from my outing today. You would not believe all the things that went wrong today. I still say it’s me!!😂😂I know it isn’t, just coincidence really, but amazing anyway. Did get a lot of pictures, just not what I was after. But nice anyway, and an enjoyable day, except for the thunderstorm, but I did make it back to the hotel before it really started raining hard. The elevators here were broken so I had to walk up to the 4th floor. Doesn’t sound bad, but after all the walking today…I barely made it! However, it was enjoyable!! I hope my guide thought so too.😂🌞🌧😁📷And that’s only some of the things that went wrong!😂

  3. What a wonderful “guide” to allow you to think she didn’t know about the picture taking. Women have eyes all over the head. They know everything that is happening around them 😂😂
