Simple pleasures

My theme of gratitude continues… and today for the ability to wake up in one county and country and to be having lunch in another.

Sailing is a huge part of our extended family life and the boys have been brought up with adventures you can have on the sea.

I am just grateful for the simplicity of island life; sun and sea … and just family. No airs. No graces. Just the simple lessons of respect, as much to each other in small spaces and the open elements, wind and tides; ropes and fenders.

And the simple pleasures of carafes of cold red wine, skimming stones, souvlaki and midnight adventures on a tender.
