My sweet daughter and I had a glass of wine on a tiny patio in Greece, on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea... the waves were crashing just a few feet beyond us... splashing with gusto many times.

As the water came up on the patio floor to our chairs, we lifted our feet and laughed together.

We had so much fun... just sitting there in such a gorgeous place and talking about our day. Then, she asked if we could stay and have another glass.



Two if by Sea!

Relaxing and laughing with loved ones... excellent medication. The best medication of all.

The wine was just an added plus. :D

A shoehorn? Maybe. But, I think not. I don't do many actual "drugs/medication" unless in severe pain... so couldn't think of anything else to shoot... being a "happy by nature" person.

Life is good... even when it's not.

P.S. For those not savvy with American History (like me, although I did know this), "One if by Land, Two if by Sea" is a nod toward Paul Revere and the one lantern in the tower to warn if the British were coming by Land, and two lanterns if they were coming by Sea.

Lydia, you can always make my day! I love your sense of humor and your love of life. Great medicine indeed.

Your image was my pick for the blue and this has nothing to do with the overall "Greek" mood.
It is clearly as well as highly underrated unlike some really strong competitors.
Thanks by the way for the explanation of the title!
