THE MAGIC OF APRIL IN RHODES


I'm enjoying "my" island in this wonderfully quiet time... it's pure beauty and magic!



One of my sweet kitty friends enjoying the late afternoon sun in the old, magical Turkish Cemetery (my beloved Zoe's first home)...  



I still have the fascinating Old Town almost all to myself... A magical view on one of the minarets...



The magical, winding alleys where time seems to stand still...


An old mosque from Turkish times slowly decaying...


Another one of my favorite alleys (Omirou)...

Annuk, fabulous and so empty, bet those same lanes are teeming in the Summer! I love the old Mosque and it's quiet crumbling!See you were prepared for the cats:)

Lovely photos. The cat looks happy.

Annuk said...

Thank you ladies, glad you enjoyed!!! :)

Juanita, Sue and Tessa: yes, I always bring my kitty friends some treats when I visit them, the old Turkish Cemetery is a special place to me! :)

Sue: well, these particular lanes (my favorite ones) never get too crowded, but it's hard in the summer to take photos like these, with no-one in the background! And the best known streets get REALLY crowded in the summer, so I always escape to my quiet places :)
I love that crumbling mosque too, it's on my favorite little square!
