Thank you Suz. Saw that most mornings for nearly three weeks, as you've guessed I'm an early riser. Tom

Thank you John, we had a fantastic time and managed to do a few days touring whilst we were there, we had a dreaded night time flight and got home about 05.00, but it was worth it although I feel like a zombie today lol. Tom

Tom, you make me long to visit the Greek Islands again, this pic is exactly the same as on some of the Islands in Greece. A lot of history between the Turks and the Greeks - looks insanely awesome. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

Thank you Victor, have been up early a few mornings and first you get a red glow then the spark that starts the day. I was lucky I had my phone to hand. Hope you're well Tom
