I hesitate to say that winter has arrived but at least we are getting some perfect autumnal weather. Cold with beautiful misty mornings and then sun once it has burned off. I must say if I could be guaranteed this sort of weather you could keep warmth. I seem to operate perfectly when it is like this, the sunlight lifts the spirit, the air is clear and fresh, I can move around more quickly. It's only the shorter days I can complain about. I did however get bloody soaked on the way home today. Following a blissful walk in this morning I decided to walk home as well. I could see the sky was very dark in places but you know, cooler weather so I can step out a tad. Anyway I foolishly had chosen the canal route home which is pretty but offers little cover if it rains....and it did, it came down in stair rods with a nice mix of hail into the bargain. Anyway, nothing that a rub down with a stiff towel didn't put right!

OK the photo is from the last trip, taken on the south coast of Crete close to the town of Ierapetra (Ιεράπετρα). I must say I'm not a great lover of the south coast. Yes it is a tad warmer but it also seems dustier and less interesting. There just seems a lot of mess there and the outskirts of Ierapetra (Ιεράπετρα) are a good example. It is gradually getting better but things move slowly there. I can't remember if the poster was telling us of a death or the anniversary of a death, I think the former but I'm not sure without digging the larger scan out. If you have an interest here is an aerial view of Ierapetra (Ιεράπετρα) and the surrounding area. The shot was taken close to the coast bottom left.

School days
How I wish for school days
How we used to run and play, Oh baby

Now those days are gone
But we keep on going on
Wondering where they're gone
School days

I remember my love
Man, good times were easy all the time
How she really blew my mind
Oh, won't you come back to me
Oh darling, can't you see
I need you here with me always.
