Here's a structure that we drive by quite frequently. I've been told that it's an old monastery that has burned down. I don't know what it was officially though. Each time we drive by the kids ask about it and want to stop to take a look around. So, one afternoon last month we had time to explore what remains of the monastery.
This photo was taken from what I believe was the interior of the building.
Toward the back of the structure.
The field outside of the monastery.

Inside of the structure.
Alexandra's shoe fell off...
Her favorite gold shoes. It's great that Izabella is already a photographer and was able to document the moment! She's very attentive.
Pretty purple wildflowers.
More wild flowers. I don't know what these are, unfortunately.
There's a small shrine (εκκλησάκι) on the property which captured the curiosity of my little ones.
There's a fig tree toward the back of the structure. A friend of mine told me that she takes here children there in the summer gather figs.
Here, I'm in the field near the monastery. I didn't take too many photos from the inside because the weeds were so thick and high. One week prior to this adventure we walked through the overgrown weeds and a tick hitched a ride on my forehead, (only to be discovered as I was driving home!) so this time I didn't want to risk anymore hitchhikers on myself or the kids.
~Have a nice week~
