You know, it’s the one we were after last spring and summer in Greece. The one that got away.

We’d had a good trip and an interesting experience. We’d moved on. . .or so we thought. . .
Last week when I wrote about “Opportunity rocking the boat” I didn’t quite tell the entire story as not only did that inbox of ours last month hold tempting alternate cruise offers, but it brought news that the owners of that ‘stone house’ were now in a position to sell it and they wondered if we were still interested.

We’d looked at other properties, lots, homes, unfinished structures. We considered building. We considered forgetting the whole thing. We thought of our ages. We thought of the work needed to make this house ‘pop’. We thought of many things. . .

Greece was set aside somewhat as we went to San Diego where I was attending a conference, but The Scout continued and stepped up the email conversation.
Then he found a reasonable airfare to Athens. . .

We arrived in Greece last night, those dream catchers in hand. Unlike my rather naive writings of last summer, I am not going to say we will capture the dream of that ‘stone house on the hill’. That remains to be seen. But, one thing is for sure, it will likely be an adventure. We do hope you’ll come along with us for the next few weeks as we report on chasing the daydream – again.
We’ll be at the mercy of Greece internet access – which is somewhat limited in the Mani -- we do know the new house has none. Our presence in the blogosphere, Facebook and Twitter might be a wee bit disjointed but I’ll report back as technology allows.
