TP Thursday: A Poros Morning
It's been a year and still the memory of the stroll we took on Poros is as brilliant as was the morning we took it.
The day simply dazzled the senses. We wound our way from the harbor, climbing higher into neighborhoods on narrow pathways that looped between houses; the shutter's snap, the sound of birdsong and an occasional dog’s bark were all that broke the silence.
This Greek island, about an hour from Piraeus (Athen's neighboring port city), is part of the Saronic Island chain near the Peloponnese coast. You can see on the map the narrow strip of channel that separates Poros from Galatas.
We’ve spent a lot of time this last year rememboring Poros: the people we met, the dogs that befriended us, the places we ate, the long walks we took, the hours spent watching boats and ferries come and go, and we speculate about the possibility of returning for a much longer stay. . .weeks. . . perhaps a month. . .perhaps more. It could be done, we think.
There are places like that in the world that draw us back to them, the Greek islands of Crete, Symi and Poros among them.
What about you?
To where do you dream of returning?
