Springwatch

With work on Two Choices almost completed, I took myself off on safari this afternoon.

The yard that we are in sits on a spit of low-lying land on the south side of the entrance to the Gulf of Amvrakikos, over 200 square miles of sheltered water that is known for its abundant wildlife. Unfortunately, much of the swampland around the three enormous boatyards has been reclaimed to provide an increasing amount of hard-standing for yachts, an easy cash crop. However, once the sea breeze dies down in the evenings, the air still echoes with the sound of amphibian love songs. Last spring when we were here, I was unsuccessful when it came to frog sightings. Today, I got lucky 😀
