Summer ?


posted on 3rd of september, 2011

After one of the worst summers in the UK for 20 years, getting stressed out at work in the office.
I was glad to be able to get away on holiday for a couple of weeks to the Greek Island of Zante with my family.The weather was fantastic, clear blue skies (the odd white cloud to break up the monotomy) plenty of sea, sun, sand and stifado. It was great just to wander along the beach (with camera at the ready) watching the world go by. Catching the odd photo now and again.
As my daughter is studying classics at "A" level, so we took the opportunity of a trip to mainland Greece to visit the site of the original olympic games at Olympia. The sense of history was almost tangible... with the temperature in the stadium at 30 degrees + walking the length of the track was enough ...let alone running in full armour as the ancient Greeks did !

Having spent ~7 weeks walking in the UK this summer - mainly Lake District - I wouldn't swap it for any amount of sun and/or heat (and yes, I have experienced warmer climes quite a few times).

I'm originally from the UK but now spend most of my time somewhere a great deal warmer in the summe rand colder in the winter... I have not seen a drop of rain in about 6 weeks and am now loning for an English summer :(

I also cannot wait for the change of seasons to give me a little more photographic inspiration!!!
