Village Markets

It looks like , the travelling merchants and the  local farmers are establishing a new market everyday of the week in a different village, in our little peninsula. They are always a great place to meet with locals and shop for your necessities. As there are no big stores in villages, it is possible to find almost anything. Here is a one, we stopped last week..

Waiting for customers is easier with a game of backgammon..
 and who can resist to listen some gossip..

Beach combing..

This weekend, there is a rather big storm going on outside. Lots and lots of rain and wind. So we have snuggled inside the home with a roaring fireplace, lots of books, DVDs, music, teas for the day and wine for the night.

I keep watching the big waves at the sea and wondering what each one of them is bringing for me. As soon as the weather settles, I will be back to may active beach combing duty :)) I love collecting stuff from the beach. Here are some nice stuff that I am displaying at home but some day I should have to show you some of the weird things, I came across..

Have a great week friends...

Mediterranean New Year...

Happy New Year dear friends... Yes, we are at our beach house and welcomed the new year here. This year we have a rather winter proof beach house thanks to our new fire place...Cheers..
For the new years' dinner we were at our neighbours place and we had turkey.. I really dont know how it became a tradition but at new year's dinner table, there has to be a turkey in Turkey :))

Our days are filled with lots of reading and writing as well as long walks at the beach..Hera is enjoying her leash free days here and rarely stops at home for some food and sleep..

 Its sunny but cold which I call a perfect winter day..
