Photo Monday – Around Lindos

We went to Greece for our Summer vacation this year. It’s a country where you could easily spend a month and not see everything. Especially if you’re like us and you would rather see less and relax more. We settled on three places in two weeks: Rhodes, Santorini, and Athens.

We went to Rhodes first and I think it may have been my favorite. It’s a little quieter than Santorini and Athens and I loved the town we stayed in, Lindos. Lindos sits just below the Acropolis of Lindos so we visited it straightaway on our first day.

Some random guy asked if I wanted him to take a picture of the girls and me and I said yes. I’m most often behind the camera and to be honest, I’m very uncomfortable in front of it. I never like the way I look. But I also know my kids don’t care and they love looking at old picture albums. I know I need to be in pictures for them so I do it.

I spotted this beach while we were visiting the acropolis and it’s the only pretty shot I got of it on my camera.

We went there in the afternoon/evening but I only took my phone with me then. I tried to go back early our last morning but quickly realized that the water is way prettier with the full Sun shining on it. Without it, you can’t see the gorgeous greens and blues.

I actually went out in the early-ish morning light twice. The first time, I just roamed around Lindos. The streets are narrow and winding. The perfect place to get lost… I felt a little out of place, walking around with my camera while the villagers started their day. I saw bread deliveries, just hung up on the door of a grocery store that hadn’t yet opened. And a truck filled with watermelons and cantaloupes right next to Melia Café where we had breakfast almost every morning. (The coffee is good and I loooooove the spinach pie.)

Lindos was so lovely. Lots of restaurants and tourist shops because it’s on the tourist circuit but it retains its charm. It doesn’t take a whole lot of effort to find the boutiques that carry items made by local artisans. But even in the very touristic shops, you’ll find local products and garments made in Greece. As for the food, it’s delicious. I’m not usually a fan of olives but the ones I had here? I devoured them! Seriously, everything is so fresh and tasty. I’m so happy we stayed a few days here and got to fully appreciate it.
