Sounds from home – evenings

Each evening, when we are all relaxing around the house, we can hear the people below at the restaurant chatting and laughing.

Sounds from home – Mornings

Mornings are so peaceful here. I usually wake up around 7:30 or 8:00 am.  While laying in bed, I just open my eyes and look out at the Sun rising and glistening on the beautiful blue Mediterranean Sea.  Yep, that’s right baby!  I don’t even have to lift my head from the pillow to see this view!

We do also hear a faint rooster off in the distance, but only if we are already awake.
