Did you know that Greece has over 6,000 islands and islets? Most are so small, they're uninhabited.
Now, for Pat Hatt. I was so focused on getting a good shot of the skull, I didn't read the description. While I can't promise you it's in the cat family, Pat, I can promise it looks like one. Right? Plus, it's over 3,500 years old (That's almost equal to the number of days you've been blogging!).
The Minoan civilization at Akrotiri was destroyed by a volcanic activity in approximately 1600 BC. All sorts of structures and bones/skeletons remain intact for our viewing pleasure, this old majestic cat (?) included.
Here's an ancient (as in, thousands of years old) creation depicting feminine beauties. It made me think of our empowered and feisty goddess of blogland, Debra. This one's for you, She Who Seeks.
Crete is one of the largest of the Greek islands. There's a lot of maritime activity there. A Turkish prison too. This anchor, now a monument, can be spotted in the Cretan town of Chania. It's for none other than Sage, our maritime blog friend. Anchor's away, Sage.
Atlantis Books is the coolest bookstore I've ever seen. This underground store graces the island of Santorini, in the village of Oia (pronounced Ee-uh). There, I found an 1897 collection of Jane Austen's works for only 1,700 Euros. One Euro equals approximately 80 percent of the US Dollar. If any of my loyal blog friends is worth it, it's Joanne. The whole set is for you, Joanne! Enjoy.
I'll stop here for now. I have more dedications, in time.
Be well, my dear sillies.
Take care of yourselves, and enjoy the new week.
