A journey through the Island of Crete!

So my awesome hubby came home from work this morning and asked if we wanted to go to the mountains...of course I jumped at the chance...they snow is almost melted up there and the kids have been begging to go to the snow! So here are a few pictures to share with you of our AWESOME day!
All of us at the Samaria Gorge on the Island of Crete...Who would of thought such amazing mountains could be mixed in with gorgeous beaches!
After we left the Gorge we took a different route than on the way up and these windmills is what we found on the way...Crete is in the 21st century! LOL I love seeing these here...I think they are awesome looking and a great way to gather energy here on the Island.
And this is where the road led us! This beach is called Soygia (Sue-giah) beach and it had the blackest sand I have ever seen on a beach and the most amazing rocks in the word...the kids and I collected a few..okay maybe a dozen or so rocks...they are really neat!
I just love this shot of Andrew, David and Emelia watching the tide roll in...isn't it a gorgeous site! The awesome dark sand and the amazement of the kids looking at an infinity of ocean...My heart just melts thinking of the awe and wonder they are experiencing...who am I kidding I was feeling the very same feelings myself!
What a cool little town carved right into the mountain side! I love how picturest this little town of Kambano is and I thought you would all like to see it too!
Thanks for stopping by and letting me share a little of God's beauty from the Medeterrainian Sea...I hope you'll be back soon as we have only experienced a little bit og the Island and there is much more to explore!
I will share a card with you tomorrow!
Happy Stampin'
May God bless you today and always!

I love the pictures... I would love to see some of those neat little villages in Europe... but I wouldn't enjoy the flight... too far! That is why 2 of my favorite movies are "An Affair to Remember" (the original w/Cary Grant) & "Under the Tuscan Sun"... love those little towns.
