Sunny days

Ok, I am back ...for few days now, but you know I was really trying to get used to the fact that I am back to town and I wasn't in the mood of posting all the fantastic nature photos I shoot during my vacations.

I went to the sunniest place I could go. I went to Ilia, the female sun in Greek. It's a small beach 10 minutes after Aedipso at Evia island. There was the room with a view, after 10 steps there was the beach, after 2 steps there was the sea and somewhere in between there was the food. Homemade Greek cooking. All day long I didn't bother moving my a** anywhere further than the scene I just described.

I don't want to say much more...and as I promised let the photos "show" you around the little earthy and sunny paradise! Or maybe I 'll start with a video first...En(ergy)Joy!





Ilia beach at the afternoon. The crane at the end of the beach was there only few days working on the new port.


Endless blue.


The view from the tavern at lunch time.


The combination of the mountain with the sea is what touched me more.


Beautiful flowers at the garden of the apartment we rented.


Cute small tomatoes. Aren't they? And delicious I bet.


Peace.

Ilia sunset.


You could always keep thin I guess if eating and living in such an environment.


For hours I lied on the beach watching at the summer sky with an almost full moon. (click on the photo for a better view)


You can't imagine how many of those I brought with me. Thinking about decorating my balcony and my plants.


I love how clouds shape. With a little of imagination you can see a whole zoo sometimes.


You can't see it on the photo, but this wooden huge anti-tan umbrella had my stuff under all day. Never moved them until late at night before going to bed.


The beach road is even less than a km.


After reading Jonathan Livingston Seagull, by Richard Bach seven years ago, seagulls are my soft spot. A great book btw. (don't forget to click on the photo for a better view)


I had a great relaxing-meditating time in Ilia...what else can I say. The place is peaceful and therapeutic.


ps: In case you go make sure is not high season, because I guess this peaceful place can easily turn into noise!
