Athens and some quirky pics...........

Hey friends I am shouting a message here........ Listen up...







Over at : Us Four Gatos There is a very special cause . Take a look. There is a button on my side bar.



Now for a few more pictures. If you are tired of them just yell. There are a few of dads quirky one's, he likes to take these..See what you think..


How impressive the buildings are....



To have survived all these years...




















This old man was just so happy to have tourists sit with him for a photo...


He was handsome....




Now for the story of the dogs.. Mum was astounded that they were fast asleep an oblivious to the hundreds of people passing them by and actually stepping over them. The guide told mum and dad that they work guarding the Acropolis during the night. They spend the night unning about and barking, they are then tired in the heat of the day and sleep. Some of the positions they were lying in was funny.


zzzzzzzzzzz







mum was glad this no longer worked....



Hide and seek in the castle.......



A huge Anchor...



A colourful tin donkey.....





Funny tin bugs .....



Huge tin ants......




Look at my perch.....



A few of dads quirky one's......





Holding down the Parthenon...


See you tomorrow.. Love GJ xx
