With picnic bag, costumes, towels, masks and snorkels we left the Portocheli marina for a day cruse along the Greek coast.
Hiring a boat for a day allowed us the advantage of being able to stop in the open sea for a swim whenever and wherever we wanted. We scouted the various coves for the beach we liked most- private and with shade.
Although Poseidon( god of the sea )supported the Greeks out of hatred of the Trojans, he was offended when Odysseus forgot to honor him for his victory. He cursed him to never return home. Odysseus wandered the Mediterranean Sea for over ten years as he was kept at sea by storms and winds. In this long journey he also encounter beasts such as Scylla, Charybdis and many other turbulant challenges. When his ship finally neared home and Odysseus was asleep, his men, wondering what he was keeping in his flask, opened it and freed winds which then blew Odysseus and his ship and crew away from Ithaca once more.
A sail boat passed us by and waived hello
I am wearing two short turquise dresses, one on top of the other. The one is a jersey dress, slightly tie dyed, the other is made of very light cotton. A white cotton, sleeved, shirt, a must over the shoulders in the seering sun.
This was a most wonderful day!
