“Look there’s another sofa left on the side of the road” Hubby said as we walked down the hill from the Taverna towards our apartment on the beach.
“Good, I need a rest-stop” I replied. “Even at this time of night, it’s still hot and sticky!” But just as I began to get comfortable . . . !!!
“What do you mean you didn’t hear it???” I hissed as the car, slowly, passed us by. “How could you not have seen it coming round the corner???”
“BECAUSE . . .” Hubby stammered “it’s such a tight bend, and I was looking through my camera. You didn’t hear it either! Did you!!!”
I eventually calmed down of course as we walked on, especially as Hubby promised another cocktail at the beach bar below.
But I’m sure there will be some much more relaxing and calming stories at
this week’s Wicked Wednesday theme of “muse”.
Just tap on the button below to enjoy.
Whilst it was a rather short rest-stop at the time, it is fun remembering
it now, and fun to add the experience to my
Abandoned Furniture Exposé Vŭ pages here.

This week’s theme at Marie’s Wicked Wednesday is all about memories . . . and it’s always fun when I am away on my holidays to remember, and re-visit, previous sites and excursions. Such as returning to several Building Sites we first visited last year, to check on their progress in the 12 months since.
So it was quite encouraging to see the beginnings of new work on what was just a series of rods sticking up here last summer.
And the work on the lower level round the corner was coming-on as well.
As some brickwork has clearly been added to what was entirely
open walls last year.
But then just further on down the hill . . . near one of our favourite little bars
. . . this site didn’t look to have changed at all.
Well, except for perhaps moving the cement-mixer from one side to the other.
I’m hoping that when we return in 2018, I will be able to report on more progress and development. It gives me something to look forward to.
But, in the meantime, there will be more looking forwards . . . and re-living fond memories . . . by tapping the button below!!!
And to help me remember to re-visit these same building sites next year,
I shall add them to my Exposé Vŭ pages here.

Since I mentioned coming across lots of roadside Abandoned Furniture during our Grecian summer vacation earlier this year, I’ve received several messages with locations of similar “abandonments” here in the UK.
Whilst most have been too far afield . . . this morning I learnt about a black leather sofa which was actually quite local.
And you know just how much I love black leather!!!
But no, I wasn’t tempted to sit and lounge . . . it looked a litte too “used” for that.
And anyway I wasn’t sure whether the owner might be stepping back outside
to add the rest of the suite!
Though if they had done, I would have certainly instructed them to dispose of it more responsibly, rather than causing such unnecessary and sinful sights
on a public pavement!!!
For more sinful sights . . . of a much more responsible nature I’m sure . . .
simply push the lips below!
As I already have a Sofa on my Scavenger Hunt pages, I’m thinking I may start a separate “Abandoned Furniture” category on my Exposé Vŭ pages.
Please feel free to add your own.

One must always remember the most important rules of the road
whilst out driving . . . such as:
1) Always fasten your seatbelt; 2) Keep your eyes on the road;
3) Keep both hands on the wheel and 4) Give clear signals to warn other
drivers of your intentions.
And of course, after parking, make sure you take your car-keys with you on leaving the vehicle . . . so as not to get locked-out !!!
I’m sure you will learn more safety tips, and proper care of car-keys
by driving over to this week’s
Wicked Wednesday by pushing the button below!!!
This latest journey is too late to add to my Scavenger Hunt car category, but it was such a nice drive that I just have to add it to my Exposé Vŭ pages.

“I think it’s actually brand-new you know.” I said to Hubby. “I’m positive it wasn’t here last year”.
“Yes, you’re right” he replied, “the concrete looks like
it’s not even properly set yet!”
“Oh and look, the flashing message on the screen is saying something about using ‘The latest digital-recognition-technology'” I told him.
“You don’t think that blue-button is secretely taking photos do you?” I asked
as I spun around, suddenly worried about my card details. “You know I don’t like these machines . . . I always have problems with withdrawals“.
“No of course not,” he replied. “That just means the way it reads the hologram
on your card. Just quickly tap-in your number otherwise it will be declined.
You said we needed cash for cool drinks at the Taverna next door.”
He was right of course, and a cool drink was certainly more important than worrying about holograms and cameras!
But I know holograms are being discussed more seriously at this week’s
Wicked Wednesday so why don’t you join me over there by tapping on
the button below!!!
I’ve already visited an ATM in my Scavenger Hunt travels, but this one was such a nice location that I just have to add it to my Exposé Vŭ pages.

As the weather begins to draw in, one has to make the most of
a sunny Saturday morning . . .
. . . and enjoy a quiet and peaceful stroll in the park.
But I know I am sure to find a little more hustle and bustle later on
by tapping on those Sinful Sunday lips below!
The weather for my stroll today was much nicer than my previous Stroll in the Park at my Scavenger Hunt pages. So nice in fact that I’m adding it to my Exposé Vŭ pages to remind myself to revisit it again in the future.

“Do you think they know I am on my way?” I giggled to Hubby as we pulled over for a comfort-stop on our way to the beach.
“No, I’m sure they mean things like Water-Skiing and Para-Sailing” Hubby replied. “Not the sort of ‘water-sports’ you have in mind!”
“Oh, I’m sure mine would be much more fun!!!” I exclaimed as I got back into the car to continue our journey down towards the beach. “Let’s see what we can do when we get there!!!”*
I’m sure you will discover lots more “sporting fun” at this Sinful Sunday by . . . carefully . . . para-glanding on the lips below!
And I so loved the fun I had, that I think I will add this to the Signs category at my Exposé Vŭ pages.
*P.S. – As a special treat, my Balcony Members can see . . . some of . . .
what I got up to on the beach from >here<. Enjoy!!!

It’s become something of a personal pilgrimage over the past five summers
for me to climb back up my favourite Grecian Stairs.
So, when I learnt that this month’s Sinful Sunday prompt was . . .
“Stairs or Steps” . . . well how could I possibly resist! Especially as these
steps hold such special and lovely memories!!!
See who else is climbing stairs this Sinful Sunday by stepping gently
on the lips below!

I’m sure you know just how much I LOVE my Scavenger Hunting . . . but sometimes, having initially found what I thought was a lovely location for a Scavenger Hunt category, I then stumble across something . . . or someplace . . .
I love even more!!!
Like, for example, this wonderful “Bench” which I discovered on my recent Grecian holiday. It was so peaceful and relaxing to stop and gaze at the
lovely view down the valley.
So at the risk of out-staying my Scavenger-welcome . . . but not wanting to waste some lovely new locations or situations . . . I thought that I just simply had to start a new Exposé Vŭ page for an occasional new, and fun,
Scavenger revisited !!!
And don’t forget, there are lots of my initial and actual Scavenger Hunt locations at
my Scavenger Listings page . . . and now over 100 different locations on
my Scavenger Slideshow page as well!!!
