Warning: Bighorn Sheep Crossing!!!

Aussies use road signs to highlight sheep crossings, we took it to the next level 😂

Food approaching ....

...actually we are like an oasis to them with all this vegetation in our garden, making it necessary to always check for four legged intruders that turn grass into wool... 😂

Misty morning in Frangokastello!

The village has woken to its first misty summer morning, with fog blanketing even the castle of Frangokastello. Visibility was low due to heavy fog that lifted after ten o'clock in the morning, followed by sunny spells. Gavdos and Gavdopoula still remain elusive!

Baby pool maintenance!

After digging for 6 hours and extracting 196 individual pool mosaic tiles, a childhood dream came true, I finally know how it is to be an archaeologist!!! 

Still no fossils found, that’s a real bummer

Sfakia on an extremely windy day!!!

Wind strength: strong enough to throw me on the road barrier as I was taking this photo, no chance to take a panoramic!

Northwest but with gusts all over the place... so much so, that we have salt on our car, in our parking lot in Frangokastello. A rare phenomenon, is the first time we see something like this!
