Back from Mediterranean

Here are a few highlights from our trip.

The front of the Duomo [cathedral] in Florence, decorated with many shades of marble.

The Bridge of Angels, statues by Bernini across the Tiber River in Rome.

View of Greek theater from the Acropolis in Athens.

Lion Gate to the ancient city of Mycenae [lions are carved in the triangle over the opening].

Wine tasting on the edge of the volcanic caldera of the Island of Santorini.

I came down with throat crud on the third day, sore throat and coughing, and still have it.  Slowed me down some on the excursions.  But what a lot of fabulous sites we saw!


Now I am catching up on the mail, etc.

Today I finished two Scrap Bee blocks for Melinda.  She asked for any style of STAR made of scraps in a particular color. So here's a wonky 8 pointed yellow star and an orange wonky Friendship Star.


Taking my sore throat to Women's Chorus rehearsal tonight to LISTEN, not sing or breathe on anyone.



All the travel connections went smoothly
Lost a half a pound!!!
Wonderful memories

I like the smile on that last star as well as the quickie tour. I hope your throat recovers soon. Leading campfire songs at camp sure didn't do much for my voice but I had to sing anyway.

You packed a lot in in such a short space of time. I'd need at least a week in Rome and another week in Florence.

Love those stars.

Hope your throat gets better soon.

Your trip looked like it was fabulous. I'm curious if you went on your own, joined a tour group or cruise? DH wants to go to Greece at some point. I'm anti summer so an October trip would be fabulous.

Wonky stars are so freeing.
