We returned to this village in The Mani; as we were as taken with it as had been the English-born writer Patrick Leigh Fermor and American David Mason. Both have written of its beauty. . .and both of them, like us, have been hoodwinked by its charms.
We had planned to stay here for four nights but we’ve already extended that to seven (it is nice to travel as we do with flexibility built in).
|One of the many we've visited so far in our search|
'That’ perfect house. . . to buy.
A second home.
And perhaps we are simply chasing a daydream. . .ahh, but for those of you who remember Bucerias, Mexico. . .you will know, perhaps not.
|Daydreaming. . .of possibilities|
Later we were hiking a goat trail through an olive grove to get a better look at another house that had caught our interest. And even if it is a daydream, it isn’t every tourist who can say they’ve had that experience, right?
|Lemon tree and artichokes abound this time of year|
Too bad they don’t stay longer, we thought. They, too, would likely be seeking ‘that’ house for themselves.
We've had some problems with the blog in recent days so I hope to be back soon but if not, I will as soon as we are able. Watch for daily updates on Facebook and Instagram. Hope to link up with Travel Photo Thursday (if I can figure out when Thursday is in South Korea vs. Greece - we just had daylight savings time here so we are now 10 hours ahead of West Coast America.)
