Frame #9. It was gone. So was the inspiration.
An old woman passed from there (wasted a few frames) and then I went on the nearby beach.

Then I went for a Souroti (the Greek sparkling water) and I waited for the rest of the party to properly bake themselves under the sun.
On the way back to the villas my daughter started running up a staircase. Frame #17, the staircase:
