“Have you noticed” I said to Hubby as we drove down the hill to our apartment, “that lots of the building sites we’ve passed haven’t changed much since we started coming here three years ago? Perhaps we should take a photo of them each year to see how they change or progress”.
“That’s a great idea” he replied. “Let’s start tomorrow!”
So the very next morning, as we set-out to re-aquaint ourselves with the island, we stopped at the first site at the top of the road.
“Well actually, they are obviously doing some new work,” I said. “Look they have barrels of water and new materials to work with.”
“But this hasn’t changed at all” he said at the next stop, further up the hill. “Yes, it’s such a shame as it’s right between two nice new houses.” I had to agree.
“Well, this is encouraging” I pointed out, as later on and much further along the coast road, we came across a completely new building.
“Yes, I think there was just an olive grove here last year” he said.
“It’s a lovely view . . . and quite close to the beach”.
“Hopefully it will be a nice new house when we come back next year”.
But later that evening, as we drove on to one of our favourite tavernas, we came across another site that hadn’t changed much at all since our last visit.
“Well they have started to add a new level here” I said. “I don’t think all these rods were sticking up like this last time . . . I’d be bound to remember such impressive erections!!!”
“Anyway, can you come along and hurry up please, that’s someone else probably driving on to our restaurant”.
“I mean it you know. If you don’t put that camera away, I’m just going to walk on without you! I don’t want to miss out on a table and you promised me a special meal . . . and a nice bottle of wine . . . to celebrate our first night back!!!”
I got my way of course . . . as I almost always do. Well, I’m sure you’ll agree it’s what a lady who’s been on her feet all day . . . traipsing around building sites, stepping over stones and piles of wood and around cement-mixers and cables . . . simply deserves.
And I’m sure you’ll come across lots more deserving ladies, and gentlemen, at this week’s Sinful Sunday by tapping the lips below!

P.S. I’m also hoping that all that traipsing around will qualify for the “Building Site” category at Jades Scavenger Hunt pages. And don’t forget, there are lots of other Scavenger Hunt “sights” at my Listings page . . . and now over 90 different locations on my Scavenger Slideshow page as well!!!
