Ancient History: Ruins of the Greek Theatre, Taormina

Taormina, Sicily ~ April 25, 2004

We were not with the group, but we often found tour groups at locations such as this one. Most of them at this time of year were German groups. Lee would amble in close and learn something; however, not understanding more than a few words of German myself, I either read the book or wandered off to take photos.

If the clouds were not in the way and the picture showed a bit more of the distance, you would see the famous active volcano, Mt. Etna.

Any comments on the photo size? I just enlarged the format, but what I don't want is a blog that takes a long time to load. Let me know, OK? The old pix are the smaller size until I change them.

This blog is sponsored by Tapir and Friends Animal Store.

Your photo loaded right away - no problem. Love the size.

Great photo, too. So dramatic.

I'm just now getting around to my email...we spend much of the day in Orlando...

Denise wrote and said she was doing the exercises faithfully...but is moving slowly, whatever that means. She thinks they are definitely helping...

Thanks for your kindness!

Loaded quickly for me, too and DOUBLE WOW! Love this "photo of the day." Makes life look like it's worth living, doesn't it? Always good to have such an active reminder. Making my Day!

Like I said earlier WOW, what a well composed picture of a site that could make a person lose his composure.

Wow! That's a theater with a view... of more than the stage.
