Let's prolong summer a bit more
Apparently there has been a big amount of rainfall in many regions of Greece but I am not ready to give up on summer posts or on summer altogether. So after my morning swim in the sea (with a little drizzling to remind me that, not far from here, it is actually raining) I am returning through my archives to Halkidiki, a popular destination for northern Greece and many balkan counties!
It was July when I took the pictures, just before the peak of the touristic season, it was hot and it was busy!
As I was searching for some info about the sculpture in the two pictures above, I found out that it has been destroyed by the same man that created it. The "stone mermaid" was part of the Kavourotrypes beach for 18 years before a conflict between the authorities and the sculptor lead him to the decision to destroy his artwork. I don't know the details of this unfortunate event but I am happy that I had the chance to see and take a few photographs of this beautiful creation!
I hope though, that the rest of the scenery has remained as mesmerising as I remember it!
But there are so many places in Halkidiki to see. Beaches with or without sun-beds, locations to visit with your car or your boat, places to create memories and live the summer of your dreams! So many places that I don't even remember their names as I scroll down at this old folder. They are so pretty though that it is a same not to share them with you :)
Do you think that their missing name makes them less beautiful?
And of course many amazing places to enjoy your meal by the sea or under the stars :)
I took those photographs when I was working as a travel photographer for a Greek magazine from 2009 till 2013. The location is Sithonia, the middle peninsula of the three "fingers" of Halkidiki, in north Greece.
