Farewell to Summer Picnics

Farewell to Summer Picnics

It’s the end of November and sun is shining. 22C+ and no winter in sight. Surely, that won’t last forever. Having realized that early enough, I organised a last beach picnic of this year near Aphrodite‘s Hills resort. Just a short drive from there is Petra tou Romiou beach, but even at this time of year it will be a bit crowded for my taste. Choosing a remote BBQ area would be a brilliant plan, or so I thought!

As we arrived early in the afternoon on Sunday, the BBQ area was busy with quite a few families enjoying Sunday late lunch. We were desperate for a bit of peace and quiet and headed straight down the beach instead.

As it has been a tradition for the last two years, we celebrated “Sparkling Saturday” as much as we could. Heading down to the beach on Saturday with a bottle of bubbly and few nibbles, just to celebrate life, beach and admire our little ones passion for rocks.

This one was a last one for the year and it surely was well worth it.

We didn’t bring any toys or entertainment and just enjoyed exploring the unknown beach.

Its a steep climb, but the views are well worth it!

The sunset didn’t disappoint of course!
