A Day of Relaxation on Tsambika Beach

After a grueling day before in Athens, we were all exhausted. Instead of going on another full day excursion, the ex and I decided to hang with his sister and her partner at the beach. The storm we had been following on the first part of our cruise was gone and it was time to take in the beautiful warm sunshine. Not so much the warm water though since it was the beginning of summer, the water was pretty darn cold!
We arrived at the beach early in the morning before tourists and locals started arriving and the four of us walked up and down for awhile on the beach collecting beautiful rocks which were tumbled by the water. I ended up collecting quite a few and had decided to bring them home for my floating candle bowl.
As we headed back to the main area where we were going to be sunbathing and hanging out, I noticed a number of people had started arriving. It was then that I noticed something I would prefer to never see again. Completely forgot we were on the beach in Europe and well, yeah.....topless women! You would think this would be good; however, all the topless ones I saw, really needed to be in full length parkas. Oh my! But it was like a train wreck. I couldn't turn away! LOL. Aaaacckkkk!
After an hour or so to adjust, I was back to staring at the beautiful water with not a care in the world, except when we were going to get another beer? :-)
