Hydra, Greece – Leonard Cohen’s Hydra!

Who knew!!  This Canadian didn’t know that, many years ago fellow Canadian Leonard Cohn fell in love with Hydra (can’t say I blame him!),  bought a house – and didn’t change a thing!!! I didn’t see the house….I did see a tribute to him!!  Sat on it!!!  🙂

Leonard met his muse of 10 years on Hydra, Marianne Jensen.  Marianne is the subject of his song So Long Marianne and his inspiration for Bird on a Wire.

ps…….. The only singing I heard were the cicadas!!!

S, xo

    Your day in Hydra was well documented.A true island with no cars only feet, mules etc for transport 😘.On to the cliff side beaches, your coastal walk up the steps and a lady painting made for a serene setting.The rustic wharf followed by designer steps showed your eye 👀 for capturing the beauty you are in and the Michael sign to guide your way ♥️.I was tired and thirsty following this XI part bog 😍One can understand L Cohn being drawn to this rustic peace and beauty.
    And mussels, need I say more.🤗 Well done Stephanie!!!🌹
