At last...


The first swim of the year! I have been looking forward to this for months.

This is our local beach, a mere 5-minute walk from the flat. The shadow on the left is that of my lounger - one of the best things about this beach is that you can sit (or lie) so close to the water.

The weather is perfect at the moment: temperatures of 33oC with a cooling breeze - it could not be better.

I took these photographs first thing when I arrived at 10:00. It got very busy later on, the busiest I have ever seen it at this time of year. I presume that because of  the economic situation a lot of Greeks cannot afford to go on holiday and instead, drive or take the bus or tram to the beaches near Athens to cool off and wind down.
