Dipping Into Autumn…

Back in Greece in October 2012 the temperatures have been in the high 20’s Centigrade  all week and the kids have been enjoying swimming at the beach almost every day.

We can barely imagine that back in the Netherlands temperatures are hovering around freezing and that the days are shorter back home.

Now we are making our ways towards Volos airport, but our in-laws have told us that we will be making a stop first and we should just follow them.

Now the surprise is to be revealed:  we turn down a little side street and find ourselves at a  quiet stretch of beach.

It’s one that’s a mixture of sand and small stones, deep and not to easy to negotiate on crutches.

I make it as far as a conveniently placed bench whilst the surprise is revealed: our in-laws have allowed enough time not only for us to have dinner before our flight home, but also a final swim. A little further down the beach is  little booth, it’s  changing room and my nephew and brother in law disappear down there with Little Mr to get changed, whilst Himself and I hold up a large towels and Kiwi Daughter does her  lighteningly quick change under cover.

In no time at all  four of them are in the sea: and even though we visited in the autumn, the water hadn’t yet lost it’s summer warmth and they had a great time. It was nice to break the winding curves of the car journey with some fresh air, for the kids the chance to burn off some energy was most welcome  after being cooped up in the car. In the end the hands of the clock moved all too quickly and we had to get them out and changed, but it was a brilliant idea and much appreciated…
