An Ordinary Beach

The small town on the Greek island of Thassos. Limenaria is the second-largest city on the island but it's still a very small town.

A small town, a small beach. It is not always true, there are wonderful exceptions but in this case, this statement is true. In the city center, near the port is a small beach. When I first arrived in Greece, on the island of Thassos, in Limenaria, and saw this beach, I was scared. I thought it was the only beach. Then I found out that there are several beaches, small and large, near the city. From a few hundred meters to a few kilometers.

The beach in the city center is for the laziest, I think, who do not want to take a shorter or longer walk to another beach.

In the evening, when I walked on the main boulevard of the city, I always saw the late ones on this beach.


Some silhouettes. People in love with the beach and the sea who do not want to break up too soon. I remember the times when I was young and I went to the sea every year, to my country, to the Black Sea. My favorite place was a fishing village called Vama-Veche where there is no other attraction than the sea. Then we used to stay on the beach until late at night.


For stories, for a glass of vodka or beer. Very pleasant moments.

Eventually, the latecomers on the beach will be the first to reach the tavern tables.


Limenaria beach is more than modest, far from the beauty of exotic beaches. I was interested in showing the spirit of the beach and the people, that is, the silhouettes that refuse to leave the place before nightfall.

Your silhouettes, along with you words have a wonderful way of weaving your story, giving it life. You have become a master teller of stories with your own personal history. They are always a joy to read.

Good luck with the contest! Enjoy your upcoming week!


I've never lived near the sea, but it's something I'm eagerly looking forward to it. I think I will go for an holiday o beach side, to experience what life's there is all about.

Those silhouettes are cutes. I think those moments are best to spend by beach side, especially for love birds.
Thanks for sharing.
