C is for Cos

Which is a bit of a cheat as it is generally spelt with a K not a C. But the Greek island of Kos can be spelt Cos, as in Cos Lettuce, and it gives me an excuse to showcase a Cincopa collection of ‘C is for’ photos taken there or thereabouts.

    My friend’s parents fly back from Kos today, they told her it was 50 degrees there at the moment. Beautiful pictures, enjoyed the slide show. Greece is one of my favourite destinations.
    BTW thanks for the Raft name check,but think you might have meant the circles of Amy’s Miscellany, my head was in the clouds:-)

    All the crags and curves of Cos in a splendid slide show — great work SP!
    Now I am craving a trip to Cos.
    Thanks for a superb contribution to the C world.

    Joy: Sorry about that — the link is fixed. I try to visit as many ABCW posts as I can and link back, but sometimes I do it in a rush…

    Joy and Helen: I too wish I was in Kos, or Thasos for preference, but having piad for our daughter to go to South Africa and our son to Turkey, me and Mrs P are stuck in the rainy UK.

    I can’t figure out exactly when you went to Kos but regarding the photos my favourite was the simple “Cupboard” picture. Very Mediterranean. Mrs P looks lovely. Perhaps you could send her over to Sheffield on a train and I’ll give her what most women need – a good long…shopping expedition!

    It would have been 1992 I think in the days when photos were on film and I took the trouble to put them in albums, rather than lose them on my computer. “The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there,” was never truer.

    As for Mrs P, she hasn’t changed too much and still doesn’t wear hats, but she certainly needs no encouragement to go shopping, thank you very much!

    I rather like Cos lettuce – and in fact it’s the only lettuce my son’s rabbit can eat, which doesn’t upset his stomach!

    The place Kos (or Cos), looks very beautiful!

    Fussy eaters those rabbits. Mind you, at least they will eat lettuce which is more than my son will.

    Cos/Kos looks like a very interesting place to visit. I also love the cupboard shot. It’s full of character…unlike the cheerless cleric! Thanks for the quick trip to the Greek Isle!
