A Window with a Glorious View


Gazing at the Temple of Poseidon from a Hotel window and thoughtfully sipping wine,while tracing vestiges from the past.The views were so evoking …

Poseidon Temple and Inviting Views

Poseidon Temple and Inviting Views

Well,it all started with a glass of fine wine which usually helps me to break free from limits and start imaginary journeys looking for inspiration.It was a sunny day radiating positive energy and felt an immediate affinity with the rewarding  views over the blue deep waters  and the surrounding area.Now,I knew I was ready to replenish my emotional stores.
Whereever I went couldn't miss the view of the Temple

Wherever I went couldn’t miss the view of the Temple

Wherever I went I couldn’t miss the view of the Temple and found a easy corner to start my journey on the  vestiges of the past.Odyssean pages (Sounion Hiron) opened and remembered that Menelaos stopped during his return from Troy to bury his helmsman, Phrontes Onetorides.And what about the finds that show the site was inhabited in the prehistoric period ? And the deeply engraved name of English Romantic poet Lord Byron (1788 – 1824) on the ruins ? Glorious pages,indeed !
Quiet corners to relax and find yourself in your self ...

Quiet corners and inviting views to relax and find yourself in your self …

The views were very inviting and promising and I thought it was enough of my journeys on the tracks of the vestiges …
Inviting Views

Inviting Views

Tring to spot the rest of my friends ...

Trying to spot the rest of my friends …

The brilliant sun started to set and a cup of tea would be the ticket to help me to come down to earth …
All was so Beautiful and Relaxing

All was so Beautiful and Relaxing

Time for pleasure,I thought to myself …
Time for Pleasure

Time for Pleasure

Time for pleasure … ,but I wonder,where do the stars go when they sleep ???

    • First of all huge congrats !!!
      I checked out your well -deserved Leibster Award and I was so happy you got it !!!
      Besides,I can’t thank you enough my dear friends Cee,Chris and Sobha for the nomination ! Feel totally honoured and delighted,let alone you give me a very good chance to expand my WordPress horizon.However,I find it very difficult for me because I don’t know how to handle all the links and the rest.As you’ll have already realised I am a completely amateur blogger and I don’t have the experience to follow all the details.Even when I want to participate in one of your challenges,I don’t know if there is a deadline or I can post any time later on.For example,I saw your wonderful posts on the theme ‘ Which way ‘,Cee and I was confused.Are we allowed to participate more than once and anytime ? Also,when I participated a couple of times in chalenges, I could’t copy/paste the logo.
      Please don’t forget that I am not a native speaker and I use English as a foreign language,not even as a second language,which makes a big difference,if you see what I mean.
      Thank you so very much my WordPress friends !
      Hope I’ll be able to participate in some of your challenges Cee,if I completely understand how it works.
      All the very best,
      Doda

                  • The 90 F,dear Amy is normally quite cool for us,but late May early June could be a bit cooler.Later in the heart of the summer we oftentimes get up to 104 F which is totally unbearable.
                    Glad you enjoyed it despite the high temp.Now,you know what I mean when I say heat waves … You have either to be in the pool,in the sea or in an air-conditioned room.To be honest,I am a winter person.Have a nice week,my friend !!!
