The sea and the girl

blog

I want to make a stop here and talk to you about the castle on the picture below-The Castle of Ali Pasha Tepelena, an Albanian ruler, who served the Ottoman empire in the Pashalik of Yanina . Please excuse the blurriness of the picture, it was taken with 200x magnification, therefore it was very far from out point of view. I haven’t had the pleasure of visiting in person yet, because the place is accessible only by boat.

Hopefully on our next trip to the South of Albania we will manage to untangle from family obligations and do so. Wait, let me rephrase that again, on our next trip to the South I will have to take all my family on a boat and do so!

The beach we visited on that day was one of the most beautiful I’ve ever been. The water is simply crystal-clear. Hence, the name-Mirrors Beach.

I wish you all a lovely weekend my darlings! Hope you enjoyed the post as much as we did creating it.

Cheers,

    What can I say? Other than your blog gets better and better. Would it surprise you when I say I know about Ali Pasha Tepelena?
    Oh, that hat. I would love to be able to wear a hat such as that. But I do not think I could get away with it. And the photo of you in that beautiful sea. You could be in the next James Bond film. The latest Bond Girl.
    Anyway. Stunning photography. And what a beach. But was the sea warm or cold?
    Oh, I am away for ten days, beginning Wednesday. Hope to catch up with you on my return. Keep safe.
    Kisses. Jo

      The only reason, I think you know Ali Pasha Tepelena is Lord George Gordon Byron. Am I right? You shall be missed Jo. Have lots of fun! Hugs

        The sea was freezing cold that day! I was brave to get in the water only one.

        I don’t think it is the only reason. But I do love poetry. The Greats. Shelley, Keats, Yeats, Elizabeth Barrett Browning. The War Poets, the Romantics. The list is almost endless. Is this something else we have in common?

    Amazing place and photos my darling! Anestis is shy too to feature on my blog but I am on the way to convincing him haha! These crystal clear blue waters make me want to go on vacation or at least visit a beach here in Mykonos, but I can only see them from our office’s window haha!
    Killer body by the way 🙂
    Wishing you both a great month!
    Love,
