Flight to Athens

After our wonderful little excursion around  Samos Island, we went to the airport.  It was just a small one-room airport.  

We had to walk out on the tarmac to get onto our plane.

What fun to fly over the  Aegean Sea.

Can you spot Samos on the map (right side) ?

We loaded onto a bus and drove to our hotel.
They have IKEA in Athens too!

An interesting Holiday Inn

interesting parking

One apartment dweller enjoys greenery - probably wishes to live in the country

I enjoy various architecture

When we got to our hotel, Jim got all the room
 arrangements and handed out the room keys.

Next - Mars Hill!

Fall day

It is such a beautiful fall day!

Had Young Mom's Bible study in the morning.  I LOVE these girls!!  

When I got home, I called my walking partner.   I have several hours of work to do at the computer today and I knew I needed to walk and get some fresh air!   The weather is just perfect for a walk outdoors!  57 degrees and no wind.  My friend was not able to walk.  She had helped with the election and had been on her feet from 4 pm until 2 am.  She's still recovering from a broken toe and was in pain.   So I picked up my camera and took a walk around the lake by my home.

I wonder if these guys will head south this year.  
The Farmer's Almanac says it is supposed to be a COLD and wet winter.

I saw several squirrels scampering about gathering nuts, presumably.
 This is my willow tree.  I feel like a kid when I get under the limbs!
A little hide 'n' seek!


This past week when Claire was here, she loved jumping in the leaves!


I decorated outside and inside a few weeks ago - I love fall decorations!

Some people are putting up their Christmas decorations but I won't until AFTER Thanksgiving!

It is my favorite holiday!
