A bit of napping in between, and then this must have been Crete.
|At least from what I remember about the geography of the island |

After the first day of teaching today - a very lively and chatty group of very interested participants - and the first-ever SAQA meeting in Israel - I was offered a quick trip to the nearby beach by Judith.
|Lots of snails on the bushes on top of the cliffs|
|Little flower on the side of the trail|
|Sunset on the beach - but I had grabbed a piece of clothing |
instead of my bathing suit, so couldn't go for a swim!
