Greetings from Sunny Sifnos my G+ friends, especially the poker players :-)
Although we weren't here to look for birds we had heard and sometimes seen the Sardinian Warbler and until today only had a wide angle lens with me. But with the help of the 60-250 and a 1.4TC managed enough reach to catch one on one of it's rare excursions out in the open

An e-postcard for my G+ friends.......

This was the view from our hotel a couple of days ago in the small port of Adamas on Milos. We are now on Sifnos but will be returning to Milos in seven days and then staying there for another 7 days.

+Jasbir S. Randhawa Many thanks Jasbir, so far so good. Just going out to lunch on a local speciality that is traditionally eaten after church on a Sunday - Revithia: chick peas cooked for 6 hours with herbs and spices!

If there's another way of doing it...............
Introduction
To continue from the Tagline

- I'm a gadget freak but I don't have a single Apple product
- no Nikon or Canon
- my car has no pistons

Married for more than 30 years to Chris and we have two sons born in the mid '80s - you do the maths.

Used to play rugby, cricket and squash but, now, humping the "bigma" around is as energetic as it gets.....

Support Lancashire at cricket; Wales at Rugby and Ipswich Town at Football - work that out!

Bragging rights
Escaped the rat-race at 53 and haven't looked back since.........

Occupation
Half way between the doghouse and the madhouse...........

Not a hope in hell, gave that up years ago
Facilities and staff were very good indeed. Bar menu is a little limited in my view, and the Tandoori Salmon needs spicing up a tad.
