In 2007  we took a  trip to  Crete  and  while  there  we visited  Spinalonga  . Sinalonga  was a Leaper  colony  between  1903 to 1957 and  before  that  it  had  a  colourful  history!Read  about  it  here

A beautiful and  tantalising view of  the  sea  and  the  mainland  so  near yet  so far.   OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A beautiful sky , and a beautiful  day  the  sky  framed  the  little house with  the  sturdy  brown door!a blocked up window above the arch..I wonder why?
