Vacation Photos

Purple Flower Vine

Here are some pictures from a recent vacation I took.  I'll describe each picture from my vacation, including information such as where and when it was taken, and what wonderful memories my vacation brings back.

These four pictures are not from a vacation, but Ed & I did go there for a race.  I have been at the Inn for a wedding in September 2001.  It was the brother of a friend.  The Green Room is as beautiful as the picture shows, and so is the Lobby!  This is a wonderful place for a wedding reception.

Melly & Akis

This is not a vacation that I've taken, but it is a dream of mine to visit some day.  This is a picture of a very, very dear friend of mine whom I meant via The Big Blue Marble thru JR HS.  It was an English assignment in 6th grade, if memory serves, and Melly was one of 4 pen pals I received and she is the only one who has kept in contact with me over the years.  I had one in Norway, one in England, Melly in Greece and I have forgotten where the 4th one was from.  In any event, Melly and I have kept in contact with each other for the past 20+ years.  She even asked me to be her Maid of Honor.  I would have loved to have gone to Greece and met her and been a part of her special day, but unfortunately, I was unable to afford it at the time.  Melly & her husband, Akis, live in Athens with their two boys, Stratos and Anthony.
