Watch out for splashing waves!

This fabulous oak tree is growing in the middle of the outdoor dining area of a taverna in Armenoi, Hania.
It provides natural much-needed shade during the summer, and when the wind breezes through the trees, it's like a natural form of air-conditioning.

maich bicycle

Autumn is nearing in Hania. The weather has definitely cooled down, although there could be anotehr heatwave coming at any time in the near future.

This bicycle hasn't been used in a while. It's probably been left here (at MAICh, a graduate school for agriculture students in Hania) by a former student, to be used by a new student next year. All the leaves will start going red soon, which will show up the autumn flavour of the season really well.

The clear sea of the Mediterranean, under a bright burning sun, makes it a very inviting place to be on a hot summer's day.

One of the most beautiful beaches in Hania (Falasarna) is slightly marred by the appearance of so many greenhouses right along the coastline...

I need a blogging break, even if it is a staycation one. I'll continue posting on a highly sporadic basis.

Here's what I'll be doing in the meantime...

See you maybe in Hania!
