The Amalfi Coast Road

If I ever get another chance to visit the Mediterranean, I would love to do the Amalfi Coast Road again. It is a World Heritage Site for good reason. Beautiful. Breathtaking. Amazing.

My Visit to Jaffa

Posted on Updated on

Last fall. Mr. M and I were so very fortunate to visit Israel during a relatively peaceful period. One of our stops was in Tel Aviv, a busy and exciting modern city. Just on the outskirts is a small area called Jaffa, an ancient city with evidence that it was inhabited as early as 7500 BCE.  It was late in the day by the time we got there,  a lovely time to visit, but not so good for photography. Still I have a few decent photos to share. This is an excavation of Roman ruins. Jaffa was a port at the time of the Romans.

Yesterday, I posted some photos from my travels and I identified them as Malta. They are most definitely NOT Malta. They are from the island of Cephalonia, or  Kefalonia, a Greek island. Shame on me!  Read the rest of this entry »

Today was a very busy day so I am just going to post some of my travel pictures. I took these in Malta, a lovely little island.

The first one is of a water wheel that is part of an interesting natural underground water system that transects the entire island. Read the rest of this entry »
