Our summer vacation is a much needed rest!
Day 1: We slept in, and then met up with family in Athens and had a a great dinner in our favorite outdoor taverna.
Day 2: We took a ferry to Naxos, a beautiful Cycladic island in the heart of Greece. We ended our day lying on the beach under tiki umbrellas and swimming in the Mediterranean Sea.
Day 3: We had lots of time on the beach, lots of time to read, do art projects, and even take a little nap. We ended the day with a grownup’s dinner on the beach: wooden tables, white table cloths, small tumblers of white wine, fried calamari and courgettes, lamb souvlaki, and lots of laughs.
Day 4: I had a long run on the beach and lots of time swimming in the sea. Ron and Sebastian rented an ATV, which made Sebastian’s dreams come true. I made rice and Greek lentil stew, cut up lots of watermelon, and we ended the day with a family movie: “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.”
