~~~~~~~Our first TDY with Robert~~~~~~~
September 15-18, 2006
Connor & Josh eat their lunches on top of one of the crew bunks
Our destination was not such a welcoming landscape at first...
...but then it gets better...
...much better...
....ahhhh...much, much better!  : )

We didn't get much time in Souda Bay before it was time to go back to the hotel and go to bed.  We had an early, early show time for our next flight...here the boys are trying to entertain themselves during the LONG hours of waiting for it to be time to board.  They ended up falling asleep before I had to wake them up hurriedly when it was time to go.  A bit of miscommunication led to us nearly being left behind while the plane went on to the next destination without us.  That would not have been good at all!
William & Josh eat the breakfast we bought before boarding the plane
the boys hang out during the long flight
an interesting (ancient?) form of irrigation
we saw many orchards that looked like they may be lime trees

walking back down toward the sea
getting closer to the sea...and the sidewalk gets smaller
sidewalk widens again...and now we can see the sea
three lanes of traffic...a horse-drawn cart, a moped and the blue car side-by-side
my guys in front of a fountain near the square
after the first stolen balloon popped, this dog learned to hold on gently as he played with a boy in the square

"Don't lose your head!"
(Can you see Robert & Connor in the background)
shock & horror!
echoes of the past
can you see the three monkeys?
William thinks he's funny...putting the straws in the back of Connor's shirt
no love for the paparazzo...LOL!
