Corfu

We are off to Corfu, Greece this week.  This port of call was on July 29, 2010.  A beautiful Thursday morning.  Off we go.....


We passed through the main part of the town of Corfu and headed out into Corfu's lush and verdant countryside of olive, orange and lemon trees.  Our destination was the village of Gastouri, where we visited the Achillion-the mansion built by the Empress Elisabeth of Austria and later owned by Kaiser Wilhelm II.  Its beautiful gardens and statues have been left intact for visitors to admire.  We continued to Kanoni for a distant view of the convent of Vlacherna and Mouse Island.  We returned to town by a different route and took a walk through the narrow streets of the old district.  We stopped at the beautiful St. Spiridon church before returning to the ship.

Hope you enjoy the beautiful sights of Greece and thank you for visiting me at My Cozy Corner.

I am happy to join Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.

Hope you leave a comment and become a follower.
