The Pelopennese

Being in the Pelopennese is like travelling back into a different time. It is incredibly beautiful both scenicly and culturally. Since our time there went pretty much perfectly, we don't really have any stories to tell, so we figured that we would jsut explain some pictures.

This is us, hanging out on our private beach, waiting for the sun to set. There were kilometers of wide sandy beaches and we were the only ones enjoying them!






This is Finikoundas' port. It had bright fishing boats that bustled in and out at sunset, bringing back what we assume to be smelly smelly fish.









This is Finikoundas. It is one of the most beautiful places that we have been, right at the tip of one of the peninsulas that extend right out into the sea. This beach is actually made up of smooth rocks.






This is me on the dock in Pilos. I had to post it because my hair looks so nice, and let me tell you, that doesn't happen often over here. The sea and the rocks in the back are neat too though. They jut out of the ocean randomly in Greece, and it is really stunning.








This is Pilos again, but the town side. Aren't we cute? Pilos wasn't even a planned trip, but due to the lack of public transportation in Greece, especially on Sundays, we ended up here. Not at all a bad place to end up.



We had alot more pictures, but apparently Blogger doesn't want to upload them for us. I guess you will have to wait till we get home to hear about Jonathan's "Save the Eel Foundation" (We are currently accepting donations).

WE REALLY REALLY ENJOYED THE TOUR GUIDE STORY. WE WOULD DO THE SAME IF CALLED UPON HERE IN NIAGARA FALLS. BUT WE WOULD PROBABLY NOT RUN INTO CHICKENS. ONLY SNOW AND TRAFFIC. WE WOULD DO BETTER AT THE COTTAGE THEN WE WOULD JUST RUN INTO DUCKS!!!

The bougainvillea in this photo is absolutley gorgeous!!! although we enjoyed all the photos---Paul would be in pistachio heaven there for sure!!!

reference:
"This is so typically Cycladic that I had to post it. Can you believe that they still have such beautiful flowers in Decemeber? Everyone has them, too. Maybe it is a requirement. If so, its a good one."

Keep well you two.
