Horizons of Chania, Crete

27 Oct

As I was going through the hundreds of photos from our trip to Greece, I realized that there are many, many shots of horizon lines, especially where the ocean meets the sky.  These four photos were chosen from our stay in the town of Chania, Crete and capture one day – from early morning through sunset.  The photos were taken from different points as we explored the coast.  Each time I look at them it takes me back to that beautiful September day.

      A place that is edging its way up on the list of places to go back to. We were enchanted.

    I’ve never been to Crete, although I visited Corfu, Naxos, and Mykonos many years ago. Looks like a beautiful place. Love your hat, BTW. I have quite a few myself.

      It was gorgeous – more to come! I found that lately I like hats, especially in the summer to protect my nose – the best sunscreen lasts a few hours while a hat lasts all day.
