We are anticipating a possible business (paperwork) trip to Greece this fall
so my favorite walk is on my mind.
For years I have craved, zoomed, snapped and framed
the colors of Earth's natural blues and greens together,
against each other.
Even though the camera never does them justice,
I can't help myself.
They have become touchstones for me
and I honor them and my dreams together.
This walk along the backside of Nafplion's Old Town
scales both the rocky cliffside and the water.
And ends back around toward the Old Town
with a cup of Greek coffee (not to be confused with Turkish),
a view of Bourtzi in the foreground
and Argos across the bay.
And when the deep, rich, hot demitasse beverage made from the beans of a tree
have taken hold,
a walk along the palm-lined waterfront to the Old Town is in order.
I'll save the town itself for another post.
Fall is now upon us.
Hope you are enjoying all that it brings.
