Last weekend we made like tourists for a few hours. A childhood friend of my husband and his wife popped over for three days. Where did they come from? South Africa! It wasn’t quite as mad as it sounds as they were in Portugal having a big family reunion and thought as they were over this way they would just pop by and see us.
Okay, it was utter madness and the three days passed in a flash. It was really nice to see them though. I actually met my husband when he was travelling Europe with his friend and we all ended up working on the Greek island of Spetses for two summers. His friend also met his wife there at the same time (there must have been something in the water!).
Anyway, last weekend was hectic. I was lucky enough to have the weekend off work, but my husband didn’t, so we did what we could.
Sunday we picked them up and drove them around Zakynthos to give them a feel for it and stopped at the Navagio beach viewpoint. It had to be done. It’s somewhere we haven’t been in years and certainly never in the summer. Needless to say, it was busy, but how beautiful is that view?
My Sunday Photos
Navagio beach is probably one of the best-known landmarks on the island and you can see why. I was safely stood on a viewing platform when I took this photo, with safety rails up to my armpits!
This photo was taken from a different angle further along the clifftop. All we could hear was the sound of horns as the visiting boats entertained the tourists. The only way to get to the beach is by boat.
Do you recognise Navagio beach? Have you ever visited?
