As I sit here at home in Surf City with a Nor'easter's wind and rain pelting the windows, I dream of our upcoming trip to the Greek Islands with 14 year old grandson, Michael. Having taken this trip 11 years ago I decided to post a few of my slides from that trip with the hope of adding many more satisfying digitals next month.

Sailing in the Greek Isles is a special experience.

Sponges (here in Athens) are one of the main exports of the Islands

I am glad for last week's beautiful weather and having had the chance to see the beach plum in bloom at our lighthouse on the north end of our island.
