... poor, so I made two big decisions. First, I decided to teach a month of summer school. Second, I decided that I would blow my summer school money on a trip to Greece. I had never been there and had seen so much about it that I had fallen in love with the idea.

We buy courgettes, aubergines and a big bag of apricots. Absolutely delicious! Drive on to ...

must have been abandoned for years. How wrong I was!
The lighthouse is said to be built in 1873
and my guide book says that it is 25 meters tall with a range of 9 nautical
miles. The sight is depressing and I decide to walk all the way back.
At least I manage to take some beautiful photos!
Have a look…..
