A cold day today.
A cloudy cold day but perfect up on the hill…
Athens, mt. Penteli and the Olympic Stadium
Looking towards the sea…
Tiny beauties on the ground
…and with beauty comes this too:
The Beatles: Because
Because the world is round it turns me on
Because the world is round
Because the wind is high it blows my mind
Because the wind is high
Love is old, love is new
Love is all, love is you
Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue
[John Lennon / Paul McCartney]
On my way down, I saw some feathered visitors wondering about …I think one of them spotted me. Chukars! Obviously also enjoying their walk!
A beautiful Thursday evening, everyone…

Thank you for the reblog! 🙂
This song is perfect for this post.
Athens looks very fascinating! Thank you for this, and the special on ground beauties. They are as beautiful as any Angora Goat!
This song moves me… always!
Thank YOU for taking the ride with me and ….you mean …’elegant’ as any Angora Goat?!!!!! 😉 😂🤣😂🤣
Hera love and extra extra love from me
[to J&J too!]
Lol! I guess you’ll always be a bit Angora Goat Elegant in my heart!
J&J (brats) send some of their fur to Hera!❦x❦o❦x❦o❦x❦o❦x❦o❦x❦o❦x❦o
Quite the variety in this post. Whoa … Olympic Stadium sure stands out! … ahhhhh … the sea … so how far is the main cruise terminal?
Ah, so glad you enjoyed the ride, Frank! The distance from Pireus Port to where I was standing is about 19km …planning your next cruise?!!!!!!!!!! 😃👍 😉
Glad to know it is relatively close! … Not sure when the next one in that region will be.
Be sure to let me know though… whenever that is! 🙂
That is a must do!
warning … I’m a hugger.
… but I can hold myself back.
Settled … I’ll hold back.
Nuh, friends don’t!!!!! 😉
Beautiful photos, beautiful day, beautiful song 😊
Oh…. thank you, my friend. This song can make anything look beautiful! 😉 well, it was a beautiful day too! 😀😉☺️
Very moving and uplifting to the mind, spirit and soul,peace
That song will brighten the gloomiest day! Thanks for tagging along! Peace
So cool to see your world. Great bird – with racing stripes, no less.
Thanks for taking us along
My pleasure, Phil! Yes… the racing pheasant! 🤣😉 well, not exactly a pheasant but of the same family. I tell you though, the guy in front didn’t look like he enjoyed my presence much! He was probably the one telling the lot to move faster (to my disappointment)!
Birds are such living art works
Speechless! Such sprawling magnificence.. the light on the sea.. the soft mountain.. the perfect tune! You are definitely ringing some bells here! 🙂👏👏👏🙂
Oh my o my…… I am so flattered, my friend but you are too kind! Still, I am so glad that these -very unprofessional- shots convey my feelings too! ☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️
Your feathered friends bring it all home… give it context. Nicely done! We’re lucky to have you! 😺🐶😊
Or… I am the lucky one, for our friendship! 🙂 They do, funny little guys! 😉
It’s nice if you can connect with animals. Not everyone has that gift! 😊😊😇😻
Sometimes I feel I communicate much better with them… 🤪😉😂🤣🤣😂🤣😂 on a side note, I talk to my plants too! 😉 😂🤣😂🤣
Yeah I do too… “don’t worry… I’m going to water you soon…” or “I’m bringing you inside for the winter so you don’t freeze outside!” that kinda stuff. 😊🙂✨🎄🙂😊
Yep yep ….exactly!!!!!!!!!!! [on occasion I have been known to sing to them too …well more like hum – we don’t want to spook humans!] 😂🤣😂🤣
giggles Btw, that Beatles song is one of my favs. The whole 2nd side of Abbey Road just might be my favorite pop passage of all time. I used to listen to it as a kid, immersed in nature at Georgian Bay. I think I mentioned that b4. Very special. Very wild. Untouched. GOOD CHOICE!
2nd side only? 😉 To be honest just because they were so popular -as a kid- I didn’t listen to them much. It was a bit later that I began realizing that these guys were out of this world, for lack of a better word! This particular song moves me so much EVERY time I listen to it.
I like the whole album but the way all those partial songs flow into one another… I just think it’s brilliant! I heard one person describe it as a “medley” but I don’t think that word does it justice. “One two threee four five six seven…” 😀
I agree with you!!!!!
I feel that I am with you, where history continues to inspire our cultures. Many hugs!
Awww… but you are!!!! Many hugs back and xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Just absolutely beautiful ♥️😊🌺♥️🌺🌹💞💜🌸🌸🤗
Was a lovely walk… Thank you, sweetie! ❤️😘😍🤗🌺🌸xoxoxoxoxoxoxo😘😍🤗🌺🌸❤️
A big big: 🤗
Back to you!
And perfect choice of song…
This song would be a perfect choice for so many occasions but today as I was walking in the cold, the quiet grey and everything around me just brought it in my ears! 😉 xoxo
Your cold sure ain’t my cold, of that I am certain 😉
There is a peacefulness to walking in the quiet grey though, don’t you think?
Oh, yes there is!!!!!!! 🙂 I wouldn’t bet on the cold bit! Sometimes out cold can be pretty harsh… but I wouldn’t go as far as comparing though! 😉 xoxo
😉 I tease you, of course.
I would not expect -35C in Athens…
…naturally! 😉 😂🤣😂🤣
It was indeed!!!! One of the joys walking that hill! 🙂
Worth the effort!
🙂 🙂 Thank you!! 🙂
You’re welcome, Marina!
