So, like I promised the day before yesterday,I am back, with lots of things to share and pictures to give you a taste of this lovely corner of Greece.It's early afternoon and we're resting after another long day at the beach.Here I go then.
On Tuesday morning like I said,we took our first tentative dip in Ionian waters.And what a dip that was!Frozen!Honestly, the water felt like ice cubes against the skin.......beautiful,clear waters,but freezing.But we kept at it, and after a couple of hours it felt slightly better.That same evening,after a much deserved lunch and nap,we set off to see one of the castles in Parga.Not the one of Ali Pasha but a Venetian one.I heard it was some sort of citadel, a fortress.Today, only some ruins remain,which,sadly, are not maintained properly.Part of it has become a cafeteria,and the rest has been surrendered to Mother Nature to do her worst.Still, despite all of the above,it's a gorgeous site, with an even more breathtaking view of the city of Parga.To top it all off, it was a night with a full moon,which made the evening and the whole scenery even more magical and otherwordly. I took some pictures to give you an idea.
Today, on the other hand,I was feeling loads better,so another trip to another beach.This time it was a more secluded beach,really cosy and cute.Nothing fancy.No deckchairs,no beach bar.Just a small canteen/taverna.The waters were as clear as anywhere else.And I have to say that they were a bit warmer and thus more tolerable to swim in.My daughter just didn't want to come out.She had to though.....the water was more tolerable, but still cold enough to make her lips turn blue after a while.So with much procrastination we set off.We sat down at the taverna for a bite to eat.Pity they have nothing for vegans...I was forced to eat things I hadn't eaten in months now.But hey...when in Rome you do as the Romans,vegan or not.So, I'll be off to rest for a while and get ready for the evening expedition,wherever that may take us.But before I bid you farewell, for now,some pictures of today.....
As always with love and light.Be as good to yourself as you are to others.
