Postcard from Greece- Thassos

Thassos is reputedly the Greek island from Homers Odyssey on which the Sirens lived,luring Odysseus into staying for many a year when he should have been going home. It’s our favourite Greek island, and we have been ten times now. We are not alone, we chatted to some people on the ferry leaving the island and this had been there 13th visit.

I have divided the pics across two posts. Enjoy!


Watching the sunset over the harbour.


Fishing boats in the morning.


Greek salad, iced coffee perhaps?


Olive wood


I love the pink!


Cockerels everywhere.


Sunset reflection.

Would this have lured you back do you think?

  5. Fabulous–no other word! My sister is in Santorini right now and I have been drooling over her photos, too. I love the pink-painted gourds (they are gourds, right?) They make me think of floppy, stylized flamingos.
