It feels like yesterday that I was showing you photos of an empty village… signalling the start of winter. But that’s history. It’s SPRING! There are signs of life… there are people watching the sunset again… there is painting going on… the new season has begun. But before Oia dusts herself off and puts on her Spring & Summer finest… I thought we’d take a quick walk to welcome the new sun-setters and say goodbye to winter for another year.
almost 6pm and it’s till daylight… that spells SPRING !
a shortcut here…
and a shortcut there…
and the sunset view opens up… the place is still a little dirty
but the “old girl hasn’t even begun to get ready for her season”
although… dusty as she may be right now
she still looks a picture…don’t you think?
over at the fort, well… tourists will do what tourists do,
they pose… they hug… they kiss and they just stare… mesmerised.
Oia is weaving her magic all over again !
this is what they have come to see of course… as well as the old girl herself.
Oia will not disappoint them. It’s actually a great time to be here…
( is there a bad time to be here ? )
at the fort… not all the locals are as excited as the happy group of Chinese teenagers…
and this… this is the luxury of this season. Two girlfriends having a glass of wine at sunset
in Oia… with nobody else around. A luxury indeed…
there are so many lines to go with this image…most of them I couldn’t even print in public !
Instead I will let you fill in your own tag line for this image and maybe send it into me ;-)
Hope you enjoyed our last winter walk…
Spring… bring it on !
