The hills sing glory to the LordIsaiah 55: 12 ( Just a small part of this verse but this is how this cycle ride made me feel.)
What you can see is a watery sky below and a wide open one above. Yellow sage is starting to bloom and maybe some pink Tamarisk. There is so much of it in bloom it makes softness of the blue.
I had to find out about these dogs. Here are the words used to describe them: ‘ independent, brave, decisive, loyal, with a high sense of duty and strong protection instinct.’ The ones I met were all of this. I met one later lying on the tar with all the goats around him as I past he got up and shepherded them towards the sea. This is when I took this picture. They are amazing . There was no one looking after these goats only two dogs and the goats obeyed them.
We cycled 10 miles in all most of it between a fresh water lagoon and the sea except for part of the way where we had lagoon on both sides . This was where the beautiful white herons were as well as a red legged, black winged birds with a white body and black head. Quite stylish I would say. They were scooping mud but not stopping to taste.
A quiet morning ride. The afternoon wind started as we returned.
Thank you for looking at this part of Greece. My admiration is for the dogs!

Love dogs (and goats!) I once delivered a package to a house with a long walk and a serious, take no prisoners, herd dog. I spoke softly and kept an eye on her, but the moment her owner opened the door, she collapsed into my side like I was her long lost buddy. Greece – I’ve always wanted to go!
I didn’t go any nearer. Those dogs were on ‘tourist’ duty.🤣This is a lovely country.
Now I know that if I ever get the baby goat I’ve always wanted, I will need a herding dog to go with it. Great post Sandy!
Ah, thank you! They will get on fine! The goat and the dog that is.😅

Yes, the sky has been changeable. But yes now and then all blue.Today a different group of big dogs wanted Bess. I didn’t like that!
