Think inside the crayon box :)

Think inside a crayon box

Think inside the crayon box :)

This long weekend is such a welcome reprieve from school. The best part is it just doesn't seem to get over. We made a short trip to Tarpon Springs yesterday, a predominantly Greek establishment in Florida. The place is called the Sponge capital of the world and has enough to pack in for a day trip......apart from sampling distinctive Greek cuisine. Shall do a post on this charming li'l place, the minute I find some time off from being lazy :)

This vivid collection of shells was screaming to be clicked. Have a great weekend all :)

I enjoyed this post but the one below even more. The dog looks pitifully tired and maybe suffering from arthritis.

Hi Moi,
That must have taken a while ,just thought i would check if the rain has arrived yet, i did post it 1st class so it should be with you. If it hasn't it could be because it hasn't stopped raining here all day..again

Cheers Mark

Nazzareno said...

...for our luck, you passed from those parts...

Kerri said...

Mmmmm, love Greek food! Those shells are the prettiest things! Isn't it wonderful having 3 days off? !!!!

annulla said...

I've never been to Tarpon Springs, but I believe that many of the sponge divers there come from the island of Karpathos. True?

Have a great weekend yourself!

inspired said...

Very very colorful your right these shells were just crying out to be photographed ...

laurel said...

I have driven through Tarpon Springs, but never actually stopped. I need to go get some Greek food.

Ash said...

Such lovely colors....awesome!!!

Moi said...

Kerri : so do I : I love their flavors and I wouldn't mind if world moved to 4 working days in a week :)

Annulla : I was told a sizeable number of them are Greek communities of Kalymnian descent. I will need to ask locals to get you the answer.

Laurel : Welcome here: u may the next time ..and enjoy the Greek fare they have to offer :)
