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?

Another  dark can't beat that

The  view  from  the  door of  our  room.
