Santorini in Pictures

My inactivity is partially due to the fact that I have been on my summer hols. To Santorini where the sun, skies and sea are unadulterated, nothing but white heat and azure. A colour palette repeated throughout the island with splashes of yellow, geranium red and bougainvillea magenta. Reminisce with me for a while and next post will be back to more usual musings...

 "In such places life seems to fall to pieces and quietly recomposes itself in the right shape..."
from my holiday read byPatrick Leigh Fermor

Just a little food footnote : there was a lot of stuffing of food, stuffed squid, tomatoes anything really. These were our most favoured, feta packed cherry tomatoes and courgette flowers stuffed with herbaceous rice and feta.

There always seemed to be an incredible local baker on every street corner, perfect for a beach snackette pick up point. Bit of dark rye with ricotta like cheese, oregano sprinkled cucumber and tomato.
Perfect dog & Perfect spot

Definite favourite dish of the holiday : Filo like pastry encasing feta, drizzled with floral honey and toasted sesame seeds.

Sunset walk and wild shrubbery
