A long walk

After breakfast we head out to walk around the bay. It's absolutely stunning. We've been to a good few Greek Islands now but we've never come across such wide sandy beaches and coves before. We keep walking along the water's edge. We leave the sun worshippers behind on St George beach. We come across another sandy bay with a lone surf shack but nobody's wind surfing today. The beach is completely devoid of people. Further round we happen upon an inland lagoon and another lone surf shack. Our shoreline stroll is blocked by some vegetation so we wade around it. The next obstacle is a fish infested inlet that we paddle across scattering the shoals in all directions. Finally the shoreline ends at a rocky outcrop. But that doesn't stop us because dolphin shoes are excellent for scaling rocks. We pick our way around, through and over some huge boulders and settle in a delightfully peaceful spot to rest, swim and stare into rock pools - idyllic. Time doesn't matter as we begin to wander back. We stop at the first beach bar and order long cold drinks, calamari with ginger and honey - so tasty, and a Greek Salad. We swim again and head back to the hotel for a drink on the balcony before a little siesta - what a chilled day.
