Water Music

by paulmichael

We spent the Orthodox Easter holidays in a village on the Cretan coast called Kalives. There was a lot of lamb but surprisingly little sunshine – guess you can’t have everything. The wind got up as well which caused some nice waves that I went out to record.


Here I am, photographed by MJ, on a little jetty trying to record wave sounds from 2 directions at once with my binaural (in-ear) microphones. You remember them, right? And that the recording is best listened to on headphones?


Towards the end of the recording some party music from nearby intrudes, punctuated by what I think is celebratory gunfire…

Kalo Pascha!


Weekend Wanderings

by mjpichette

We spent the weekend exploring the Chania old town and the harbour area. We were here two years ago, so some of the places were familiar, but lots of new things to discover, too.


The perfect place for a meal after a walk through the old town.

This was my second visit to The Well of the Turk. We arrived early Friday night, hence the empty tables… This restaurant has lovely Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food. There is a tapas plate with houmous, tzatziki, baba ganoush, and other lovely things that is just perfect with a glass of white wine.

The old mosque at the edge of the harbour functioned as a place of worship until 1923, but is now used for art exhibitions.


Here are some more shots from around town.

And some from the Old Harbour area…

And the sea… I just love the colours of blue and green you see here.


The Gate of the Sand

Thanks to the Internet, we are working in Chania this week. The Air B & B we are staying at  looks over Koum Kapi beach. The sun is shining, the sea is blue, and it is Friday! We’re off to explore what this warm and wonderful city has to offer. Here are a few photos from yesterday’s walk.

And a few from today… early morning and lunchtime. I love the bench with the sign saying “Free Internet Access.” It’s a reminder that we could literally work from the beach… although, in reality there is a bit of a glare on the screen, and the beach itself is a bit distracting 🙂
