Summer Retreats off the Beaten Path

Dead calm waters and summer reflections in peaceful and quiet places which have  escaped tourism and commercialisation.Natural beauty and calmness that make you really feel away from a bleak world .

Drawing the blue curtains and revealing placid waters, pebbles,fruit,flowers,veg,hens,yes, hens living  free and happy in a seaside orchard.All is so pure and life is so simple and peaceful without the hustle and bustle of the big cities.

Just some quick Greece-related posts before leaving for cool European destinations …


  1. I can feel Greek summer warm when admiring You beautiful photos.

    • I have to thank you dear Jet for your delightful comment which made my post more significant.The appricots from our orchard by the seaside,they are bio and helped a bit only with some organic fertiliser.They are delicious and juicy; I wish you were closer to send you some ! Now,I’m sending you my love and hugs , Doda 🙂 xxx


  4. Your photos are a cornucopia of peace and silence. All the wonderful growing things. Some yummy and some just for the eye.


    • Thanks a million for your generous comment,Gretchen, and especially for the word “cornucopia” that you used.No wonder that you know the connections with the Horn of Amalthea.That’s what I really like in your wonderful paintings and inspirations..You combine painting with deep knowledge so impressively.
