Holiday snaps

A totally random selection of holiday snaps

We begin with... probably the best beach bar in the world...

And this beach wasn't bad either - yes it really was that quiet at around 11am!

 As we sailed past the 'Mamma Mia' church, the boat crew kindly played 'winner takes it all' and we sang along... Well, as they say, when in Skopelos...

Local legend has it that some fishermen came across an icon of St John the Baptist while fishing off this rock. They left the icon on the beach and returned next morning with the necessary kit to move it to safety, but it had gone. They searched everywhere until they found it right at the top of the rock. Believing it was a message from the Saint himself, they founded the church of St John the Baptist on Skopelos.

A little Greek nature

A little Greek insect. (Check out the English girl's pink skin!)

A little Green texture - shower head on beach

Kind of cool eh?

  5. Oh wow what beautiful shots!!! I especially love the first you looked sooooo relaxed I'm jealous :0). I just had a look at some of your previous posts. Really love those faces on the backgrounds. What a great exercise to get the creative juices flowing differently. I've never done a background first then drawn on top (with out a plan I mean) it sounds liberating I think I need to try this. Thanks for sharing those great holiday snaps too :0)
