Under the scorching sun, hilltop Hora, is now a hazy tumble of bleached-white houses that cascade amphitheatrically down from the medieval fortress to the fishing port of Skala where I find myself beach bumming with Peter and our little cute poodle barking elegantly at the gentle lap of the sea against its paws, wagging its tail impishly with eyes glinting in the glare of the sun, silently beckoning us to cut short our little trip to heaven before the sun’s rays blow their finest, and the turquoise blue of the sea turns into violet mauves and ethereal purples shrouding us in some tribal mystery with the sound of the water like yodeling voices as they swell begging me to dip into it again!
