A holiday in Crete

We had the most wonderfully relaxing week in Crete, back in July. And I realised the other day that I hadn't shared any photos with you! So, this is a rather photo heavy post!
 Hugh at the hotel with the view to the sea
 Evening view of the pool from our balcony
 We visited Heraklion Archaeological Museum - me with some Minoan pottery
 Hugh at the museum with some Roman statuery
 We took walks along by the sea

 We ate LOTS of delicious food
 We watched the sun set every evening from the taverna whilst eating the delicious food
 We went for a ride on the little road train
 We visited the Palace at Knossos and had a guided tour
 We found some shade at Knossos and used the self timer!
 We watched another sunset!
 I drank a complimentary glass of ouzo every night

 We swam in the pool at the hotel
We swam in the sea
 We visited the Creteaquarium
 We took a selfie and tried to get the shark in it too (just)!
Hugh took a photo of me with the sunset in the background
We used the timer again on our last night on our balcony

And because I can, because it's my blog, here is another sunset photo!
(not the best, but I still like it!)

No doubt these photos (and more) will be showing up on my scrapbook pages when I get some time to start scrapping again. That's the problem with summer - too much time is taken up with making the memories to scrap, that I don't have the time to scrap! Actually, I have been having a great summer making memories and will love reliving them during the cold, grey winter months when I will have plenty of time to scrap!

Lovely photos, Crete is one of the places I'd love to visit.

I was just reading about that museum last night in my new Mary Beard book. It's great to see the photos! It certainly looks like you had a lovely time

I visited Crete over 40 years ago, and Santorini just last year. I love the Greek Islands and would return in a flash! Gorgeous sunsets!
