A day on my own in Athens

Friday, November 01, 2013

My husband is at a conference today, that is actually the reason we came to Greece so I took this opportunity to go for a walk by myself and enjoy the sites and the sea.
Here are a few of the beautiful things that I saw.
























I enjoyed walking by the sea and watching all the people go by. The picture of the squid is so fun, I eat it all the time but I haven't really seen it like that, just out of the sea.
There is so much to see and do here in Athens and my 2 hours of walking was very enjoyable.
It is sunny and about 70 degrees so it is the perfect weather for being here.
Thanks for stopping by. I hoped you enjoyed a little bit of my time here!

    Great pictures! Though it is on my continent, I have never been to Greece yet. Thanks for sharing your trip, it makes me want to visit.

    Though they look a bit smarmy, squids are very intelligent animals, able to solve logic problems. They are also incredibly playful. Just hope fishermen have stun them before killing them because these little critters are extremely sensible to pain. :(

    Thanks for sharing such lovely pictures, love the beautiful blue sky. The flowers are so beautiful, unlike the flowers that have dying off here with fall in the air.

    Your pix of the sea are breath taking. So incredibly beautiful. What a wonderful place to "spend a couple hours". I never had squid always heard it was very chewy, but than I guess you would have to know how to prepare it. LOL Love the flowers and that sunshine is blinding me...haha....it's cloudy/rainy here. Continue having the time of your life. You deserve this. emoticon
