Travel & Thank: Day 7. Such a Small Town, So Much History
Still not much tan, but I'm clearly enjoying myself, can't you tell?
Since today the weather was even worse than on my glorious beach day - the skies completely blanketed with clouds - I spent the day exploring some of the major local historical sites, including the town's old and new forts, harbor, some ancient ruins and tombs and a church. This was a whole lot of walking, stair climbing and picture taking - a great work out both for me and my camera battery that died sooner than I was done enjoying every minute of my historical escapade.
I'm very thankful the day allowed for this much sight-seeing and cultural exploration. Be it a sunny day I'd be so tempted to spend at least half of it on the beach or by the pool that I just wouldn't get such a great chance to feel THIS historically accomplished!
