I am sitting on a plane which has just left Athens bound for Heathrow. The whole group flew in from Milos - on the only plane there is on one day! Very early. So we have all been mouching around Athen airport, drinking coffee and having desultory conversations about photography.
I would not go back to Milos. There is not enough of interest. Jacqui is doing a course in Morocco next April but says they intend to trek through the Atlas Mountains. I think that is a bit beyond me. But I fancy Morocco. Souks and bazaars sound good to me.
I have spent a hour or two this morning planning my life over the next month. The Berkshire Open Studios starts tomorrow and lasts three weeks but in between I must deal with my entry for the Complex Weavers book. This means finishing the draft, winding the warp of 12 yards, getting it on the Megado and weaving it. It is going to be tight. However everything else can wait till June. Progress will be reported.
Some photos from the last few days.
At the manganese mines
The church in Pollonia where we stayed.
A piece of carefully sited drift wood.
So what have I learnt? What lots of the camera buttons do and what apps, equipment other people use. I have ordered some stuff from amazon which should arrive today. One thing I must do is take photos of our layout for the Open Studios. Personally I think Dorothy has the right idea. She is off to Scotland for a break with friends immediately the Open Studios closes,
