On Pentecost week end we have launched the summer
season by an all day visit to the beach.
You will not believe it but after coming back home and getting
a glimpse of my photos, I realized how beautiful our beach
is and how habit can alter and distort the image that we have
from our reality. I mean that we are accustomed to the sea
view and as personally I am not a big lover of the sea, I usually
don’t give a damn! Nevertheless, observing the beach through
the pictures, I was thrilled to see so much beauty!
This is not Myconos or another tourist area but “my” beach
all along the Corinthian gulf, a breath from home.
Approaching the cost, the damp smell of saltwater and the
aroma of the summer sea breeze permeated the air.
The unsettled weather didn’t disturb us in any case and
a brave soul has had her first plunge!
The first jump into water, the aperitif, lunch and coffee
took place in three different bistros but all photos have
been taken in the same coastline, the same day.
And later we were very lucky to witness an astonishing
sunset and followed the sun’s path to the sea. Various
colours blended as the time went by and we finished our
day relaxed and satisfied with what summer
has to offer ahead.
I perhaps should reconsider my opinion about
the charm of the sea.
“I felt once more how simple and frugal a thing is happiness:
a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier,
Hope you also enjoy warm, golden days.
