5.23.09  Relaxing on a Greek Beach- Kyparissia

 

Here’s a quote from Jane Eyre (Jazy finished and now I’m reading):  p.77

 

“I remembered that the real world was wide, and that a varied field of hopes and fears, of sensations and excitements, awaited those who had the courage to go forth into its expanse, to seek real knowledge of life amidst its perils.”

 

I love that!

Our "real knowledge of life" was primarily gleaned today by hanging out by the beach. 

 

Since Jazy was a bit sick last night, Lia and I walked about a kilometer into town this morning for meds.  We found a pharmakio open and got Jazy some medicine, which she (fortunately) no longer required by our eventual return.

  Jazy and Charles enjoyed sleeping late.

 

The town was quite busy with locals shopping and choosing fruit at the markets, and we too visited several places.  I got some shorts that are stylish.  Lia said it was “Tessa Hill, 17 Again” in reference to a recent movie.  I wasn’t sure that was a good thing, but I need some and they were hip, for goodness sake!

 

Then we hung on the beach, reading, swimming, etc, showered before walking to the outdoor restaurant here at the campground.  They have delicious food!

 

We are wearing our Capri perfumes now so we remember fondly our time abroad whenever we smell it after we're home.

 

Now is sunset and the watercolor pink and yellow still float above the light blue sky and the silvery-blue water.  Beautiful!  There’s soft music in the background, half of which seems to be in English and that the kids know. 

 

The kids are sitting on a bench chatting with Ned.  He put a Skype application on Charles' iTouch while visiting in Paris, and that is awesome!  Anytime we have wifi, we can call him for essentially nothing.  You can call any landline or cell phone for just 2.3 cents a minute or so. 

 

 It was a most pleasant Saturday spent enjoying lovely Greece at its best.  Ahhhh...
