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 had the whole beach to ourselves and started with the most important activity of the day. Collecting and throwing rocks.
Even at the end of November, it was warm enough for shorts and a swim in the sea (for me still cold, but I say the same even in the middle of summer).
We didn’t bring any toys or entertainment and just enjoyed exploring the unknown beach.
Just before sunset, we headed up the steep hill to get the best view of the sunset. Its a steep climb, but the views are well worth it!
We ended up back in the BBQ area, now finally deserted with only one couple enjoying their dinner, complete with a gas heater and pots with pans! Impressive!
The sunset didn’t disappoint of course!
What a farewell to summer!
Hope you’re enjoying a lovely Friday evening wherever you are!
