“Every time I stand before a beautiful beach, its waves seem to whisper to me: If you choose the simple things and find joy in nature’s simple treasures, life and living need not be so hard.” -Psyche Roxas-Mendoza
«Κάθε φορά που στέκομαι μπροστά σε μια πανέμορφη παραλία, τα κύματα της φαίνεται να μου ψιθυρίζουν: Εάν επιλέγετε τα απλά πράγματα και βρεθείτε χαρά στα απλά θησαυρά της φύσης, η ζωή δεν χρειάζεται να είναι τόσο σκληρή».
Why oh why can’t life be like a relaxing and beautiful day at the beach?
“Besides great climates and lovely beaches , California and Greece share a fondness for dysfunctional politics and feckless budgeting”. -James Suroweicki (a back to reality quote)
I wait all winter to see shores like this, and it’s worth the wait.
A hidden gem of a beach next to Voidokoilia beach in Messinia in the Peloponnese mainland of Greece.
Life should be a beach, but we humans complicate things a little too much!
H Ζωή θα πρέπει να είναι μια παραλία, αλλά εμείς οι άνθρωποι περιπλέκουμε τα πράγματα πολύ!
Run to the sun.
The last photograph that I took in September of a sunset on a beach in Greece. Now, the rainy winters of Greece have set in. I just read that online today that meteorologist predict that this year will be Europe’s’ coldest and longest winter in the last ten years. So I guess I’ll be looking at these photographs with heavy nostalgia from December through March 😦
Landscape of Voidokilia
‘Voidokilia’ beach is a very famous beach in Greece and it is considered to be one of the most beautiful in Greece. It is located in Messinia, Peloponnese. The landscape is very unique with its sand dunes and marshland, and the beach that has a circular Omega type shape. It is a great place for bike riding too. The day that I went was not great for swimming. It has been a rainy summer so far in Greece. I arrived in the evening as I was just quickly passing through with no intention for staying too long, but I when I got there I wanted to stay a while longer. So, I will definitely re-visit this place when the weather is better in the near-future.

Many people will be sitting on these chairs this summer
Empty beach chairs? Only if it’s off season.
No swimmers in sight..way to early.
These are a few photographs that I took at Schinias beach at Marathon just outside of Athens. As Greece is surrounded by the ocean, it only recently dawned on me that I hardly have any beach photos on my blog. This is scandalous.. I know.
A nice trip to the beach before the hot summer begins. It was α warm day, but not warm enough for people to want to go for a swim. There were a few who couldn’t wait any longer so they took a quik dip into the ocean. I, on the other hand, was a lot more happier comfortable taking photographs of the beautiful vista.
Μια ωραία επίσκεψη στην παραλία πριν από το καυτό καλοκαίρι . Ήταν μια ζεστή μέρα, αλλά όχι αρκετά για να θέλει ο κοσμος να πάει για μπάνιο. Αλλά μερικοί ήταν αρκετoi γενναίοι και εκαναν μια βουτιά. Απλώς δεν μπορούσαν να περιμένουν άλλο. Εγώ από την άλλη πλευρά, ημουν πολύ πιο άνετη τραβοντας φωτογραφίες από την όμορφη θέα.
