A few days ago, I was lucky enough to have the time and the opportunity to drive to Halkidiki. The kids were staying with Yia Yia and I had the daunting task of retrieving them. I had planned to spend the afternoon and I stuck with my plan.
As soon as we arrived, Alexandra wanted to change into her swimming suit-she couldn't wait to test the warm, welcoming waters in front of her. So, we changed and enjoyed the beach for a few hours.
The waters were so clear and calm that afternoon, which is typical for Halkidiki beaches. We swam, played games and enjoyed a meal with Yia Yia before heading home.
On the drive home, I stopped at one of our favorite spots so that the kids could step out of the car and have a look at the incredible view. I feel that they're finally old enough for me not to have a panic attack as I watch them look down the cliff side. I'm relieved to say that they handled themselves well.
Kosta and I used to ride a moped around the peninsula and stop at various places to take a break, enjoy a great view and/or swim. Can you blame us for loving this view?
I couldn't resist capturing one more breathtaking view before heading home. Halkidiki is one reason that I agreed to move to Greece, it's so irresistible. I really need to make more time for myself to get there!
