Pic­ture this: an is­land, a win­ery and a street

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - TRAVEL 2013 - TRAVEL WRITER

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to Juliet Les­lie of Clare­mont for her pic­ture of a church on San­torini in Greece.

She says vis­it­ing Greek is­lands was mag­i­cal.

“This Greek church was on the is­land of San­torini.

“I loved the crisp white walls, blue domes and rus­tic stone walls off­set by the stormy back­ground.

“We walked al­most the full length of the penin­sula, en­joy­ing vis­tas down the steep cliffs to the Mediter­ranean sea be­low.”

Les­lie wins a R300 meal voucher at Blow­fish Restau­rant in Dol­phin Beach, Blou­berg.

The run­ners-up are Sue Grove of her pic­ture of a street in Lis­bon and Charles Fil­lies of Ron­de­bosch for his pic­ture of a statue on Saronsberg wine farm in Tul­bagh.

Grove en­joyed the vi­brancy of Lis­bon.

“It’s a very vi­brant city, al­though a lot of build­ings need some at­ten­tion and look quite run­down.”

Fil­lies cel­e­brated Christ­mas in July in Tul­bagh, at the foot of the Win­ter­hoek Moun­tains. “It was alive with ac­tiv­i­ties. There was plenty to drink and eat: glüh­wein tast­ing and milk bread; a chilli eat­ing com­pe­ti­tion; good live fes­tive mu­sic; wine tast­ing and a ride through an olive grove on a Santa trac­tor-driven sleigh.”

GOD’S HAND: Juliet Les­lie was en­am­oured of the white­washed build­ings on the Greek is­land of San­torini.

TIME-WORN: Though some of the build­ings may need re­ju­ve­nat­ing, Lis­bon is a vi­brant city, says Sue Grove.
