Summer’s Last Hurrah

IMG_4296It is good to be home after experiencing the severe heat and crowds when traveling throughout Europe, and while I still have a post to share from Athens it feels great to be back at Heath.

IMG_1612 IMG_4214As summer comes to a close, I shall miss meals prepared outside on the grill and served with slices of seasonal fruit, but cannot wait to turn on the ovens to bake or the stove to cook stews and soups.

It is always thrilling to witness the transition of each season and fall has to be my absolute favorite time of the year. Perhaps it is because I am not a fan of summer’s  heat or humidity. I love the fact that soon there will be chilly mornings and evenings along with leaves rustling and the smell of wood from fireplaces. And, there is nothing, absolutely nothing that beats a crisp clear night filled with stars! Fall is almost here!!!!!

Stay stylish,

The Isle of Rhodes

IMG_5201 IMG_5173{Cats were everywhere on the island especially, around and about the Harbor of Rodos}

Rhodes is famous for the huge bronze Colossus {Kolossos means “giant statue} that once stood in the harbor, known as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World; is home to a medieval fortification in Old Town and has a geographical location, which is the gateway to the Aegean.

The beauty of this island is not just as a beach resort, but seeing the ancient built upon the new that makes it shores so awe-inspiring. Listed are few of my favorites sites when exploring.

One of the best assets of this island is the seafood, restaurants specializing in traditional Greek dishes with influences from nearby Turkey, and do not forget the ocean view of the Aegean when enjoying a meal.
