The same bay and view were enjoyed by Anthony and Cleopatra, who stopped for a brief respite while they were en route to battle with the Roman legions in North West Greece.
These where the legions he had deserted for the love of a great beauty.
These tables hold great beauty too, as they are not just rubbish adrift on the waves but are the separate pieces that make a whole in the form of delightful furniture.

Take some unused shipping containers, place them in an unused dockland right in the middle of a thriving city, add food, music and lights and the rest comes of its own accord.
In November 2013, Brisbane's Northshore suburd Hamilton, welcomed the opening of a unique shipping container-based market called, Eat Street Markets.
With more than 50 shipping containers specially reconfigured as mini-restaurants, bars, galleries and produce stores, the markets aim to recreate the ambiance of a South-East Asian night market. www.northshorehamilton.com.au/?name=Eat-Street-Markets
Open on Friday and Saturdays from 4.00pm till 10.00pm, and on Sunday from 11.00am till 7:00pm on the river right next door to Portside Hamilton, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

At an opening last night I was almost more drawn to a wonderful jacket worn by someone than to the beautiful art on the walls.
I just had to ask where he had acquired it... New York, Paris, Sydney?
“Oh I made this myself. I just bought this tapestry from a Vinnie’s for $5.00 and then I sewed it on the back of this jacket.”
This is a great example of shiftazine thinking.
So go to your nearest charity store or church fete and see what beautiful tapestries or pieces of fabric that will transform a jacket or coat that has lingered in your wardrobe.
