The People And The Sea

Posted by Granita To Go, 11 November 2009 - - - - - - · 3,683 views

I've come to believe that people who live within sight of the sea are able to recognize more easily the shades of gray in our lives and our decisions.

A Day To Be Spent On The Balcony

Posted by Granita To Go, 23 October 2009 - - - - - - · 2,236 views

Good morning!
Another very beautiful day in Crete. I have trouble leaving my house because I have the best of all worlds here. Inside the house is comfortable and cool. Outside the temperature was just right all morning here on the front balcony (on the west side of house). Here we have the best view of the sea.

Now the sun is starting to nea...

Weather: Sometimes Hot, Sometimes Chilly

Hello, hello. So good to be back .
I was going through a painful loss. My younger brother passed away totally unexpectedly. Terrible shock. I still have trouble with accepting what has happened.

But now, I am well enough to write again. It's best to "get back up on the horse as soon as possible" everyone says.

We've been having won...

Days Of Nice Rain And Coolness

Two more days of great rain. Still soaking into the soil at a slow rate. Today and tomorrow we should have more of the same. The water table of Crete should be replenishing very nicely.

Turkey has had a terrible tragedy with six months worth of rain in two days. All over the world the same problem with flooding is repeating itself even in my lovely...

Bare Feet And Marble Floors

We've had rain each day of the last three days! Early morning Monday seems to me to have been the best kind of rain. The rain lasted a long time and thoroughly soaked into the ground.

Today is the first day since spring that I haven't been barefoot on our marble floors to keep cool. I'm wearing socks and slippers . . . and a sweater...

As Day Progresses So Does The Heat! To A Higher Level!

Posted by Granita To Go, 06 September 2009 - - - - - - · 1,677 views

After the noon hour I grabbed up a basket of wet clothes to hang out to dry on the back balcony. The back balcony is on the east side of the house, usually by this time of the day the sun has traveled far enough to the east to leave the balcony in shade. Before I had even stepped completely out the door I was so startled by the intensity of the heat...

Cooler Temps Coming With Autumn In Crete!

Posted by Granita To Go, 06 September 2009 - - - - - - · 1,641 views

Autumn is my favorite time of the year and slowly, slowly I feel the temperature cooling here in northwestern Crete. Today the breeze over the sea is coming from the west causing some small waves with a bit of white froth. The water is a steely blue with patches of turquoise. The northern horizon is clearly delineated from the sea today. There is a...
