Inspiration Avenue Challenge - If you could go anywhere

When things seem a bit hum-drum
or the cares of the day are pressing in,
then it's time to do a little 
wishful wandering!

If you could go anywhere, do anything,
where would you go?
what would you do??
what would you see? 
This week's challenge over at Inspiration Avenue  is to describe where you'd go and what you'd do if you could go anywhere.  I would go back to my hometown in Greece where I could watch the boats on the marina and take in the beautiful sea.  I would sit out on the balcony with a cup of tea and watch the peacefulness of the village lifestyle go by.  I would slow down my life and take time to enjoy my surroundings.
This creation started with a black and white photograph of the marina in my hometown.  I changed it to a sketch in Photoshop, and colored the background.  Then I used brushes in Photoshop to add the sun and other embellishments.
