Be careful with that sprained ankle. I sprained my ankle three weeks ago and it is not healed yet. Doing exercises to strengthen it.

After the swelling went down, I realized it was my foot I hurt. I finally went to the doctor this week and it appears to be a foot sprain (nothing broken). You are right - it does take awhile to heal! I am still limping along. Ugh. 

 

I hope you are feeling better!

Having visited Greece a few times, my only visit to Delos was 40 to 50 years ago, when I took a 7-night Greek Island cruise beginning and ending in Athens (Piraeus).  I remember visiting Corfu, Crete, Delos, Mykonos, Santorini, and one or two others.  I no longer have photos or documents from that trip, only fading memories.

 

I guess they would have excavated more of it in those 40-50 years too so it probably looks quite different now.

Today's sunrise will double as a where am I.  I have been there on HAL and Crystal has been there but not me aboard. 

 

I'm thinking somewhere in the Atlantic Provinces.  Fredericton?  Halifax?

I am going to zoom in on that license plate  to check that and  which side of the car the steering wheel is on(one way street could be either ) LOL

Flag looks like Canada?

I'm pretty sure it's not in PEI or NL.  How about Saint John NB? 

You got it!  Looking pretty much directly up the street from the cruise terminal.

Cobh, County Cork, on the south coast of Ireland

Yes, it is!  Has interesting maritime histories (e.g. military, trade, emigration, Titanic).

Cork day trips tend to visit Blarney Castle and/or Midleton distillery.

A few days ago I posted a sunrise in Saint John, NB.  This is from the same trip.  After Saint John I traveled by train to Montreal and dropped in on my cousin about 20 miles to the south.  This sunrise was taken from his farm, the family homestead since the 1850's.

That’s one of my favorite places, Roy!  The developer’s old office building was one of my favorite headquarters-type campus.  It’s funny to think of it as a supermarket now.

The space between Whole Foods and the lakefront entry is now being developed by the county as a mini kids playground.

 

Today's sunrise is from the same trip as the photo from my cousin's farm.  The train from Montreal arrives in New York too late to effectively allow a reliable connection to Baltimore and rather than spend the night in New York I got off a couple hours earlier in Poughkeepsie.  This sunrise is from Poughkeepsie:

Today's sunrise photo comes from the first of my round trip transatlantic sailings, 2012.  I sailed Queen Mary 2 New York to Southampton, transferred to Dover, and returned to New York on the Symphony.  This was August 28 from Queen Mary 2:
