Those old gods and goddesses were very smart - getting people to build such fancy temples in their honor. I always kinda liked Isis, but my favorite god is Dionysus. I like wine!

And yes, the water along that beach is quite warm...because it's the Gulf and because it's relatively shallow.

I forgot...I wanted to say I like your new profile picture but wonder where is Ms. Lombard? :-)

Simply stunning. The Temple of Isis must have been an awesome place when it was still used.
