An Afternoon at Agios Dimitrios Beach, Alonissos.

On our second day in Alonissos, I was woken up by the sound of the crickets chirping in unison at exactly 6 in the morning. It’s like a cricket leader gathers his cricket friends around as soon as he sees the first sign of the rays of the sun, counts 5,6,7,8 and they all chirp in unison. It’s a sound I never hear from the city, it’s a sound that I haven’t heard for awhile. I thought it was just me whose slumber was disturbed by the noise they made, The Greek Mister apparently was also startled by it and that’s saying a lot since he’s probably one of the few people on earth who can fall into a deep sleep whenever and wherever as soon as he closes his eyes. We’re not complaining though, that sound reminds us that we’re on a holiday in the beautiful island of Alonissos.

After breakfast, we rounded up the family for an afternoon at the beach. It was a unanimous decision that we’ll go to Agios Dimitrios beach, a decision which was quite hard to reach what with all the beautiful beaches Alonissos offers.

As we arrived, we went at the far-end of the beach where a small tavernaΒ is located – empty sunbeds were abundant Β in front of it and we had the area practically to ourselves. Like a private beach reserved solely for the family. On top of that, we have an easy access to food and drinks from the taverna.

The sky was clear, blue and there was not a hint of clouds in sight. The water was calm and cool – a quick dip in it immediately refreshes us from the warm glow of the sun which the women in the family worshiped to get a tan. The Greek Mister’s teenage niece swam up to me as we’re swimming at the deeper end of the sea “I really really love your tan! I want to have the same.” she said. “You have to be born Asian to have this color”, I replied. You’d think that that statement would discourage her from laying all day under the sun trying to get my “tan”. It didn’t. :p

It was a perfect day to spend at the beach but then, what day isn’t a perfect beach day in Greece during summer? As they say, Greek summer is not in crisis.Β

After spending the whole afternoon at Agios Dimitrios, we headed back to our villa to have our late dinner. It’s one of the things which I enjoyed during this holiday I had with the Greek family, authentic home-cooked Greek meals. Opa!

    I love the beach! The water looks so clear and blue. I’m not good at ‘laying out’ for my tan. I think I would have been looking through the rocks for a treasure find! haha It looks like a wonderful way to spend the day with your family! Thanks for sharing! #TheWeeklyPostcard

      Thanks for dropping by Nancie.
      My Mother-in-law did just that, she was looking for rocks the whole time that we were there. Flat rocks which are now painted and displayed on their balcony. :p
