Summer's end

I know that the title of this post is misleading, given that we're nearing the end of October,  but our beach is closed, and this is the definitive end of the summer here. 

This is what our beach looks like now. All the beds and umbrellas gone, and even though we still have access to the beach, it's a completely different landscape to what it was before.

This is what it looked like in the summer.

This has not stopped us from swimming however.  Our last swim so far was on Monday, and it may well have been the last as the weather is changing. We may decide to continue swimming in the lake  where the water temperature is a steady 22-24oC throughout the year -  we will see how it goes.

During the last two weeks we have been going to the 'free' beach which is also near where we live.

It's a lovely little bay

and we swim across it, beyond the rocks in the distance, to the beach we  favour in the summer months, and then back.

Still lots of people using the beach and swimming

The winter swimmers will continue coming regardless of the weather. This is a group of them, in front of the winter swimmer's club hut. They use the beach as their social club, and in this instance they are having ouzos and meze.
