Picture + 100 Words: The Stairs

There were 180 steps. I counted every one. Not when I was descending and looking out into the sparkling Aegean Sea. Only on the ascent did I count. After hours of swimming, snorkeling, reveling in the fact that no one else at the resort wanted to go down that many stairs to this dream of a beach. On the way up I counted to 180 and then I turned around. Atop the cliff with a wall of sea staring back at me, I was slightly out of breath but already planning the next trip down.
