A plan gelled to head out in the rental car, so off we went to visit a rustic but upscale hotel, a smaller
b&b where the proprietress and friend maintained a quirky farm with chickens, 14 dogs and fruit trees including delicious mulberries that melted in your mouth when popped fresh off their stems. It seemed like a good idea to venture further to Gallipoli where we wandered another ancient city filled with chic tourists and patient locals enduring the summer swarm that insured their livelihood year round.
It's hard to know when to stop photographing. Every vista is new. I am enthralled by the light, my surroundings, the people and the way they move about their familiar routines. Novelty brings its own infusion of delight and I am grateful for the chance to be here.
