We tend to go away at the hottest time of the year but Corfu was experiencing an unusually cloudy late July. However, there are benefits to the cloudiness:
I can’t get enough of these bleached morning colours – they’re so delicate and almost indescribable in their shades.
Thankfully the clouds were chased away leaving days with clear blue skies and stunning evenings. Watching the abundance of water traffic is the perfect way to while away the hours, and our plan to one day sail around the Mediterranean is discussed at length on a daily basis.
The boat on the left appeared one morning and stayed for the day before unfurling her sails and setting sail again. Isn’t she a beauty! In fact, why are boats referred to as feminine?
And there was much excitement one evening when this yacht appeared in the private bay just below our apartment. It made me think of Bogart and Baccall films and conjured visions of the late Princess Margaret in full party mode entertaining into the small hours!
Dusk is another wonderful time for watching the swallows dart about catching their evening meal. I tried my best to get pictures but this one looks like it has been stuck on afterwards!
The best views of the sunsets are seen from the other side of the island, but the east coast is not without beautiful dusky skies in the prettiest range of mauves and greys and I will leave you with my favourite image from the holiday.
There will be a few more posts from Corfu in the future but enough for now before the blog turns into a slideshow of my holiday!
I have to say though that whilst the blog originally started as a necessity for my business, it has evolved into a brief record of my daily comings and goings. A couple of weeks ago my computer hard drive threw the towel in and I lost a lot of documents and photographs from the last twelve months. Thankfully I have recorded most of the events here and it has made me realise how much my rambling and musings on the blog mean to me.
Thank you all as ever for continuing to pop by, reading and commenting. There has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes and fingers crossed, by the end of the week, I will have a shiny new website to show you.
