Well what have I been up to since the last post in June? Things seemed pretty quiet right? Maybe I took the summer off? Nope. First 2 weeks of July was off to Europe and the last 2 have been weddings and getting the new studio moved into. Let's take a look at some of the European highlights!
One of the Morgon villages in the Beaujolais - Cotes du Rhone wine region. We had a beautiful day for a drive through the French countryside.
On Crete, a stop at the Archeological Museum included a stop by the Phaistos disk, one the fullest examples of Minoan language in existence.
Still on Crete, the refurbished temple segment at Knossos replicates the underlying stone mural depicting the Minotaur of Greek legend, which the Minoan civilization takes its modern namesake from.
In Kusadasi, Turkey, the silk cocoons of silk worms are spun together to string together the fine fibers into weavable material that will eventually become a rug.
A classic example of a Greek seaport. The ancient gatehouse shows the port security dating back to antiquity.
The Great Library at Ephesus, outside Kusadasi, Turkey, shows the grand facade still standing.
Finally, the Geneva Lake fountain in Switzerland was kind enough to give us a rainbow welcome to the city.
